Bike culture in Atlanta seems to be pretty young and active. Cycling in Atlanta has grown in popularity in recent years. Many of the well-known "cycling cliques" are represented in the city, including urban cyclists, road racing bicycle riders, messengers, and fixed-gear riders. Though Atlanta's famed hilly topography can make cycling difficult, many parts of the city are relatively flat, including some of the more densely populated areas. The city is relaxed, but while riding, you better have hand signals and bells as it is for your  own safety. Helmets are a requirement for cyclists under the age of 16. Stay to the right since it is a law, and stay off the sidewalks.
