Bike group hopes to bring more biking dollars to Coweta

You may have heard about Bike Coweta, the new group whose goals are to provide a safe and bicycle-friendly community to local citizens and to encourage cycling tourism to the area.

But what you may not know is exactly how much of an economic impact biking can have in a community! According to, a single race weekend brought some $200,000 of local economic impact to Auburn, Alabama, and in Anniston, Alabama, the biking at Coldwater Mountain is estimated to have an annual economic impact of $4-6 million.

Our Chamber has been pleased to support the establishment of the new LINC trail here in Coweta, and we're excited about the opportunities for even more recreational offerings that will encourage a healthy lifestyle and attract visitors to Coweta County!
