Become a Sustaining Member for only $5 per month!
By becoming a Sustain Charlotte member at just $5 or more per month, you will support the work we do everyday to make it safer and easier to get around Charlotte without a car!
Through our Bicycle Program, we engage the community in multiple ways as we work towards our goal of growing the use of bicycles for transportation. We envision and are working to support a connected network of bike lanes and greenways that will make it possible for residents of all ages and abilities to safely ride a bike to the places they need to go.
Specifically, we're achieving this through our #iBikeCLT campaign asking Charlotte City Council to approve a protected bike lane, through Uptown Charlotte, connecting Irwin Creek Greenway and Little Sugar Creek Greenway with the ultimate goal of this being the first of a network of protected bike lanes! We also organize our annual Biketoberfest event every October!
An average of 44 people move to Charlotte every day, and we’re projected to become the second fastest growing large U.S. city through 2030! As we grow, it's critical that Charlotte's active transportation future is linked to world class infrastructure for people who want to go from point A to point B in a way that's convenient, safe, inexpensive, healthy, and fun!
