Welcome to the City of Raleigh Bike Blog


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.
