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.

 

A very big THANK YOU also goes out to Oaks and Spokes for organizing an awesome bicycling festival for the third year! Their ten-day festival played a huge part in making Raleigh’s bike month successful and expanded the opportunities for people to participate.  The commitment of Oaks and Spokes’ volunteers to promoting and sustaining bicycling culture in Raleigh is invaluable.

We would also like to thank the American Diabetes Association of Eastern NC, who partnered with us again this year.  Their Tour de Cure cycling event raised critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy.  Additional thanks go to Rex Healthcare for sponsoring breakfast for our Capital City Ride. We also received tremendous support for our Bike to Work Day Pit Stops from REI, the Daily Planet Café, Bruegger’s Bagels, the Oak City Cycling Project, North Hills, the Institute of Transportation Research and Education, NC State University Recreation, the NCSU Centennial Campus Development Office, and the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

As always, none of this could have occurred without the support of our dedicated and energetic staff.  Special kudos go out to Sydney Leonard, Jason Myers, Todd Delk (Office of Transportation Planning) and to Kathy Molin (CommuteSmartRaleigh) for the blood, sweat and tears they put into all of these events.  And last but definitely not least, we greatly appreciate the time and direction provided by our volunteers with the Raleigh Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission.

The City of Raleigh is committed to building a bike-friendly Capital City for our growing bicycling culture. We’re already looking forward to next year’s Bike Month in the City of Oaks – do you have ideas for how to make it better?  If so, please feel free to share in the comments below.

 

Ride safely!

PS - Please also feel free to take a moment and complete GoTriangle’s short survey – we want to continue to grow bike month in the area and with your feedback we can continue to improve!
