If you follow Sustain Charlotte’s work, you know we’re big advocates for trying to bike or walk instead of driving your car. But we know that can be really intimidating for folks who aren’t consistent cyclists, or who are new to the area, so we try to do what we can to make biking more accessible here in Charlotte.
