Updated 1.2.18: A heatmap showing density of WikiMap comments is now available in PDF format (45 mb).*

  • Difficult route for biking
  • Difficult route for walking
  • Route I bike
  • Route I walk

Updated 10.5.17: The Toole Design Group will be on-site Saturday at the Athens Farmers Market from 8:00 A.M. - Noon and at the Front Porch Bookstore in Winterville from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  They will be interacting with citizens to discuss the on-going Master Plan development.  There will be Athens in Motion promotional shirts, as available.

Updated 8.18.17: The result of the bicyclist / pedestrian demand analysis is a heat map which shows areas of current or potential demand for biking and walking based on proximity to items such as parks, trails/greenways, schools, colleges/universities, commercial centers, and other community amenities. This demand analysis is one of the many layers that will be used to inform the final plan.

The Athens-Clarke County Unified Government is in the process of developing a bike/pedestrian master plan known as the Athens In Motion Plan. The Athens In Motion Plan will identify a clear strategy for near and long-term projects that will result in a safe, connected, and equitable bike and pedestrian network for Athens-Clarke County.
