GROW SMART CLT

We are excited to introduce our new monthly event series, Grow Smart CLT! These fun events will dive into the multiple sustainability issues that Charlotte faces with our rapid growth. Come network and mingle with like-minded Charlotteans while you learn what you can do to make a difference!

Each month we will choose a different issue and bring in experts to speak on how we can make sure Charlotte grows smartly in that area. The events not only educate, but each will have one clear action item that you can do to make sure Charlotte is on the right path. Visit growsmartclt.org for dates and tickets!

WALKCLT

Using wayfinding signs, this initiative encourages residents and visitors to walk, rather than drive to destinations in their area. WalkCLT is held in June and is powered by OrthoCarolina. The event was attended by over 350 attendees in 2017 and raised awareness of the role that walking can play as a mode of transportation and the many social, environmental, and economic benefits walking generates for ourselves and our community. Learn more about this event by visiting walkclt.org.

This unique event shows hundreds of people how easy it is to get around Charlotte without driving! This ticketed event allows attendees to bike around town to fun destinations while collecting stamps in your official Biketoberfest Passport.

The stamps you collect on your passport at official destinations will be entered into a raffle for many fantastic prizes! The more destinations you visit, the more chances you'll have to win! In 2017 we had a record-breaking attendance of over 550. 

This event takes place every year in October. Learn more about the event and get details on the next date by visiting biketoberfestclt.org.

These workshops are free and open to the public. Whether you are interested in biking but haven’t yet started, 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 here.
