It's located on Stone Mountain Freeway (Hwy 78). It's about 1/4 mile east of Lake Lucenre Road. You can see it when heading east. It's on the left side of the road.

And while the driver is craning to read the billboard, he swerves a little and nerfs you into the weeds.

Looks like part of the ClearChannel settlement.

It looks like the cyclist is getting rear-ended...

I thought you were talking about the other billboard about the non-missing girl.

I think it's great - anything that raises awareness is a good thing.

It's a shame some can't be complimentary of progress.

Why are so many residents of other states posting negative comments? Are you planning on moving here? That's just what Atlanta needs -- more negative responses to bicycling issues.

It gives me some hope. I'm just over the border in AL and ride in GA at least once a week recently. I'll be up in Atlanta for a ride in a couple of weeks.

It makes me happy.

There are a lot of road signs that say that around here, and certain roads have lanes with pictures of bikes, signs and all that. But I don't see a lot of cyclists riding along city roads. Don't blame them, I don't like to either. Better than walking though...

They should put one of those in the vicinity of the So-So Def sign on your way into downtown. That sign just screams "Welcome to ATL" to me
