Sustain Charlotte to Hold Fourth Annual Biketoberfest
Oct 01, 2018 09:57AM
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.
