Last year we added over 100 bike parking spaces at 58 locations, including 3 bike corrals and 5 brightly-colored BikeRaleigh racks. We plan to install more bike parking this year and we want your help identifying the best locations! Let us know what you think before September 15. Share the survey link with your friends: https://publicinput.com/1912.

 Help the City of Raleigh collect important bicycle data by tracking your trips on Ride Report! Ride Report is a mobile app that automatically and anonymously tracks trips made by bike. Once you download the app and make a profile, the app starts collecting data from your bike trips. When the city receives enough information we will be able to develop a stress map similar to this photo from Austin, and will be able to determine from Raleigh riders the best and most used routes. For more information or to download the app, visit the Ride Report site.

 There has been some confusion surrounding what right-turning drivers should do at intersections with bike lanes, and BikeRaleigh is here to clear things up.  Two things need to occur to make turning right safer:

1. Motorists and bicyclists need to look for and yield to each other when approaching intersections.

2. After checking that the bike lane is clear, motorists should merge into the bike lane where it’s dashed before turning right. Motorists should not merge into the parking lane to turn right. 

 UPDATE 4 MAY 2017. Due to the threat of thunderstorms, the Capital City Bike Ride scheduled to take place on 5 May has been rescheduled to 26 May. Can you believe it? It's already time for Bike Month 2017! We have so many fun events for all ages and abilities happening between now and the end of May. Check below for a comprehensive list and links to registration pages of Bike Month events!

Please fill out this survey from the folks over at People For Bikes so Raleigh can be a part of the PlacesForBikes' City Snapshot! Per their website, the city ratings are "a data-driven system identifying the best U.S. cities for biking and rewarding those that are improving the fastest". Your responses in conjunction with the data we provide will help us to compare Raleigh's current and future bike infrastructure with other cities around the country.
