The BikeRaleigh Program encourages biking in Raleigh through on-road facility design, cycling safety and education promotion, and encouragement events. Our primary goal is to promote bicycle use as a viable, attractive, non-polluting form of transportation and assure safe and convenient access to all areas of the City.
Bike Month 2016 is right around the corner and we can't wait to see how you celebrate! This year as part of our celebrations, BikeRaleigh will be holding two contests- one on Instagram and one on Twitter! Winners will be announced and prizes will be given away at our BikeRaleigh Forum, Wednesday, May 25th!
Over the next few weeks we will be highlighting the bike facilities commonly seen around Raleigh. Today we'll be covering Buffered Bike Lanes. "Bike facilities" are a catch all category for the markings and places bicyclists ride. It is important for motorists and bicyclists to know what to do when they approach each facility to ensure a safe commute for all.
