Another success. The April 29 (the day before Mayor Foxx’s 40th birthday) kickoff for BIKE! Charlotte, 16 days of fun-filled events. Hizzoner and 300 + bicyclists young and old, including Michael Smith, CEO of Charlotte Center City Partners rode the leisurely route from Dowd YMCA to the Tryon Street bridge and up Tryon to Wachovia Plaza for a HUGE breakfast. The first event of BIKE! Charlotte 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 Ken (KT) Tippette of CDOT and others in city government who have invested in these events at a time of fiscal constraint. Special thanks to Neal Boyd of Charlotte Sports Bicycling who managed this event, and to CCCPartners who cosponsored.
