BY CRAIG DURKIN
@ VOL 35 ON FEB 25, 2018

What began as a project to map all of the fruit trees in the city of ATL turned into a game, a challenge, and a discovery. Craig Durkin began biking entire neighborhoods as the founder of Concrete Jungle, taking different routes each time, and finding all manner of interesting aspects and landmarks around the city. Now, he has decided to bike every road inside Atlanta’s perimeter road (outer belt/beltway/perimeter). Listen as Craig tells of how this project began, what he’s found along the way, and how he is turning this project into crow-sourced information.
