Wheel appeal: Biking creates urban public spaces Biketoberfest emphasizes benefits of streetscape

(by Ashley Mahoney, The Charlotte Post)

"See Charlotte by bike instead of driving.

Sustain Charlotte presents its second annual Biketoberfest Oct. 15 from 12-5 p.m.

'You talk to people about the need for great public space,' said Jordan Moore, bicycle program director for Sustain Charlotte. 'One of the things I always say to people is, imagine being in Paris, and you are walking around, you have been there all day, and you stop, and you pause, and you reflect. You take it all in. Well, where do you do that in Charlotte? Where are we building in moments into our public space where one can imagine stopping and reflecting? That is what good public space does.'

Biketoberfest encourages people to see riding in an ecofriendly and health friendly way."
