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.
New fix it station alert! Special thanks to the Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department for installing a new bike repair station at the Walnut Creek Wetland Center (located next to the Walnut Creek and Little Rock trails). It joins the stations at Umstead State Park, Anderson Point Park, and Marble's Children's Museum. To view an interactive map of all the stations, click here.
Happy New Year! 2017 is going to be a big year for bicycle and pedestrian projects for the City of Oaks (or Spokes!).
Huge thank you to everyone who came out to our BikeRaleigh Racks Ride this past Sunday!! The ride left from Exchange Plaza, through downtown to each of the five racks, and ended at the Downtown Raleigh Food Truck Rodeo. Mary Catherine Floyd, designer and fabricator of the BikeRaleigh artistic racks, also joined us for the ride! Special thanks to BPAC Commissioners Mary Sell and Paul Nevill for leading the ride and being our sweeper, Eric Lamb for kicking off the ride, all of the donors for the artistic racks, and Chris Heagarty of the City of Oaks Foundation for all of his help through this entire process! We look forward to having more rides like this throughout the rest of the year.
