CycleCharlotte08 and MAYOR’S RIDE
Thank You’s to All
Thanks to the Dirt Divas, the Rank Riders, Mark Weaver, the Amy Broome band and so many others who pitched in for the third annual Citywide festival which took place last Saturday promoting a friendly and safer environment for bicycle transportation in the Queen City. This exciting event was for people of all ages and skill levels with a police supported 3-mile family ride thru Uptown Charlotte and 10 and 25 mile rides through some of Charlotte’s most beautiful neighborhoods. After the rides, there was as much food as people could eat, live entertainment and other activities for all to enjoy. 50% of all proceeds will go to CABA progam efforts in education and safety again this year.
The Mayor’s annual bike ride held the first Friday of BIKE ! Charlotte was a huge success with a big crowd and of course Mayor Pat McCrory who took time off from his statewide Governor’s campaign to roll up his sleeves and ride to work ! Special thanks to Ken Tippette and CDOT staff and Neal Boyd for their hard work again this year. This year marked the 8th annual BIKE! Charlotte series of events to bring the benefits of cycling to the greater community.
