Mayor's ride: the crowd gathers for a great breakfast of scrambled eggs, fresh salad, yum-yum pastry and smooth grits at Wachovia Plaza

Uptown excursion. Join Mayor Anthony Foxx and other civic leaders. A short, totally leisurely ride from Dowd YMCA parking lot then across the Tryon Street bridge and up Tryon to the Wachovia Plaza for a HUGE breakfast. Dress for success; spandex not required. Starts at 7:15 a.m. and ends around 8:30 a.m. Just in time to start your work day!

Can we top 500 riders this year ?

The first event of BIKE! Charlotte. 2011 marks the 11th year of recognition for people of all shapes, colors, skills and age, and interests to participate for health, the environment, and just plain fun. Support the cause of cycling !

Thanks to CDOT and others in city government who have resuscitated these community-wide festivities at a time of fiscal constraint. Special thanks to Neal Boyd of Charlotte Sports Bicycling who will be managing the Mayor’s ride again this year.
