"The Coolest Guy on a Bike in ATL"

@ VOL. 22 1/2 | ATL CYCLING FEST & ATL PKN ON JUN 08, 2014

Kyle Torok is easily the coolest guy on a bike here in Atlanta. That said, he is one heck of a guy and riding his bike has brought happiness, saddness and many upon many great experiences. Overall, it has brought him friends and a community of people- and through it all has been his bicycle.

Ryan Gravel is known around Atlanta as "The Beltline Guy" for it was his masters thesis at Georgia Tech that led to the Beltline project becoming a reality. However, in his presentation, Ryan does not discuss how the project came to be, rather how he observes its impact on people and the city in which it is becoming increasingly integral.
