Welcome to BikeRaleigh


The goal of BikeRaleigh is to make bicycling safer, more comfortable, and more convenient for people of all ages and abilities. BikeRaleigh’s strategy includes system planning, facility design, education, outreach, and encouragement. BikeRaleigh is the bicycle program under the City of Raleigh’s Office of Transportation Planning, also known as RaleighMoves.

Harrington Street CycleTrack

The Harrington Street Cycletrack is a priority project from the Downtown Plan and Bicycle Plan. An Open House was held on June 18, 2019 after a successful 3-day pop-up event was held in April, 2019. Open House survey results and comments will be sent to the design team to incorporate into the plans, and a proposal may be sent to the City Council for approval towards the end of 2019.

The Harrington Street CycleTrack 3-day pop-up event was held the first weekend in April, 2019. The project installed a temporary two-way separated bike lane, also known as a two-way cycletrack, on Harrington Street from Davie Street to Morgan Street. The project’s primary objective was to introduce Raleigh to the two-way cycletrack and test the design in a downtown setting.  The 2016 Bike Plan Update calls for the City to create a low-stress bikeway connecting Raleigh Union Station and the Warehouse District to the Glenwood District. Originally slated for West Street, a combination of factors led to looking at Harrington as a better long-term fit for the facility.  

Blount Street – Person Street Corridor Plan Implementation

Based on the Blount Street/Person Street Corridor Plan adopted in 2013, Blount Street, Person Street, and Wake Forest Road between Hoke Street and Capital Boulevard will be restriped and resurfaced to reduce motor vehicle speeds, improve safety, and provide accommodations for bicyclists and pedestrians. For more information, go to the project page.

Gorman Street Connector

Raleigh’s first two-way separated bike lane is coming to Gorman Street between Sullivan Drive and Hillsborough Street. The project is intended to provide a safe connection for bicyclists and pedestrians between the Reedy Creek Trail (Meredith College) and the Rocky Branch Trail (North Carolina State University). For more information, go to the project page.

Leesville Safe Routes to School Project

The Leesville Safe Routes to School project aims to improve bicycling and walking conditions around Leesville Elementary, Middle, and High schools by installing sidewalks and shared lane markings on Oneal Road and sidewalks and bike lanes on Country Trail. For more information, go to the project page.

Blue Ridge Road Bicycle/Pedestrian Improvements from Trinity Road to North Carolina Museum of Art

A design to improve bicycle and pedestrian facilities along Blue Ridge Road from Trinity Road to Reedy Creek Road is under development. The design includes a new non-motorized bridge over Wade Avenue; sidewalks, separated bike lanes, and shared-use paths; and an improved intersection at Reedy Creek Road. For more information, go to the project page.

Crabtree Creek West Trail

The Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department is managing this project.  For more information visit their project page.

Walnut Creek Trail at Trailwood

The Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department is also managing this project.  For more information visit their project page.

Crosstown Neighborhood Bikeway

Raleigh’s first Neighborhood Bikeway is proposed to connect Whitaker Mill Road to Ridge Road parallel to Wade Avenue. The project is intended to provide safer bicycle travel by choosing roads that have low vehicle traffic, have lower speed limits, and by increasing signage along the route. Review the draft plan and give your input on Tuesday, August 13 from 4 - 6 p.m. at Dove and Olive Mercantile
