Sustain Charlotte has announced the official route for the eighth annual Biketoberfest on Oct. 30.
The family-friendly experience for people of all ages and abilities takes participants on a scavenger-hunt-style adventure through Charlotte to learn how easy and fun it can be to get around the Queen City without a car.
“Biketoberfest is a great way for folks to learn how enjoyable and easy it is to explore our older, urban neighborhoods by bike or foot,” Sustain Charlotte Executive Director Shannon Binns said. “Biking or walking, even just a few days a week, has enormous health and climate benefits. Biketoberfest not only introduces people to new ways of experiencing Charlotte, but it’s also a fun, fall celebration of our community.”
Hundreds of participants will explore the streets, parks and businesses of uptown, South End, midtown, Sedgefield, Dilworth, and some Historic West End neighborhoods – with options for a long route (11 miles) and a short route (4 miles) – and collect stamps at nearly 30 interactive stops representing local businesses, nonprofits and government departments.
