Why Should You Come?
Check out the entire route for Biketoberfest 2017! We are adding more sponsor stops every day!
To have fun getting around the city without driving and to support Sustain Charlotte as your community advocate for biking in the Charlotte metro area!
Experience two protected bike lane demonstration projects! The first will connect the Irwin Creek and Stewart Creek Greenways along 5th and 6th Street in Uptown — this is the connection that we’ve been advocating for via our #IBIKECLT campaign since March of 2016! The second demonstration will run along Mint Street from the Panthers Stadium into the Gold District.
Want to help with the protected bike lane demonstration? We are looking for volunteers to help with painting the street, planting flowers, and bringing tactical urbanism to Uptown! Volunteers get a free ticket to Biketoberfest and event t-shirt! Sign up here!
Children under age 18 may participate for free if accompanied by a paying (registered) parent or guardian.
All proceeds will benefit Sustain Charlotte and our Bicycle Program!
