Event Details

Are you interested in helping make Charlotte a better city for bicycling? Would you like to learn what others are already doing and work with them to achieve this goal? If you answered yes to either of these questions, we invite you to join us at our next Shifting Gears event sponsored by WeeklyRides.com!   

On Wednesday, May 1, Sustain Charlotte will continue our Shifting Gears public action workshops to propel cycling in Charlotte forward during BIKE!Charlotte.  After three years of advocacy and project planning by the City of Charlotte, the first phase of the Uptown Cycle Track (IBIKECLT Uptown protected bike lane) is a reality!

You will hear a presentation from the Charlotte Department of Transportation's Active Transportation Team before taking a guided thirty-minute ride down the Cycle Track! CDOT and Sustain Charlotte will lead small group tours to the Rail Trail via the 7th Street bridge, McDowell Street, and 6th Street.

We encourage you to bring your own bicycle, bicycle lock, helmet, and lights to this event.  We will have a limited amount of bicycle rentals available onsite.  Please contact Kate Cavazza at kate.cavazza@sustaincharlotte.org for more information.  

Upon return to CPCC, you will give your input directly to CDOT staff about your experience! We will also have some light appetizers available.

We will meet at CCCP Room - Zeiss Classroom Building - Room 1100.  **Parking is available in Deck 3 which is right across the street from the Zeiss building on Elizabeth Ave. The entrance for this garage is located on Charlottetowne Ave and as well as E. 4th St. You are able to park in any spot unless it says reserved for someone in particular.

Tickets: These workshops are open to the public. Tickets are $5 for non-Sustain Charlotte members (donate at least $5/month or $60/year) and free for members and organizational partners. Interested in learning more about becoming a member? Click here.

Whether you are interested in biking but haven’t yet started, are a weekend warrior, or a daily bike commuter, everyone has a part to play in helping realize our City’s new vision for bicycling in Charlotte. Learn more about Shifting Gears here.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to get more informed, engaged, and make a difference.
