Sustain Charlotte to Hold Fourth Annual Biketoberfest

Oct 01, 2018 09:57AM

Discover how easy it is to get around Charlotte without driving at Sustain Charlotte’s fourth annual Biketoberfest presented by The Charlotte Knights from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on October 14. This unique event features a scenic loop route starting at Lenny Boy Brewing Co. with stops at fun destinations and will culminate with an after-party at Triple C Brewing Co.

A partnership with the Charlotte Department of Transportation will facilitate a pilot-protected bike lane on Sixth Street. There’ll also be a shorter, more family-friendly route, and bikers can collect stamps at stops that’ll be entered in raffles for prizes.

Sustain Charlotte started this event in 2015 as a fun way to promote biking for transportation to Charlotte-Mecklenburg residents. Last year, nearly 600 people attended assisted by100 volunteers. Bicycling for transportation promotes a healthier lifestyle and also reduces transportation costs, air pollution and carbon emissions.

Sustain Charlotte is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that advances a region-wide sustainability movement by serving as a catalyst for change that inspires choices that lead to healthy, equitable and vibrant communities for generations to come.

 

 Cost: $25/adults. Children under 18 can participate for free if accompanied by a paying parent or   guardian. Locations: Start at 3000 S. Tryon St., finish/after-party at 2900 Griffith St. Rain date will be Oct. 27. For more information or to register, visit BiketoberfestClt.org. Also visit SustainCharlotte.org.
