Well, it’s that time of year again in the Queen City. The summer heat has passed and the temperatures are falling like the leaves. We are all spending more time outdoors. Whether it’s walking the dog to your neighborhood park, riding the trails at Whitewater Center, or exploring the new greenways popping up all over the metro area. We are all getting ready to enjoy another beautiful Carolina fall.....
This past year in the cycling community we have seen a dramatic transformation in the Queen City....have you noticed the growing number of cyclists in our area and what impact it is having on on our neighborhoods?
We certainly have. Everytime you walk or ride a bike in Charlotte you are encouraging and teaching others. Indirectly, that 2 mile ride or jog has a trickle effect on dozens of citizens around you. When you yield to pedestrians crossing the road, use turn signals, or are just being patient. You are creating a lead for others to follow
You are also educating others on how to interact with bicycles and pedestrians. These little steps will continue to bring big changes to Charlotte and we have been seeing some leaps around the Queen. There are too many groups to name that have been doing outstanding work to improve our infrastructure, but we wanted to tip our hat to the cycling community advocates below.....
In the meantime, “fall-ow the trail” or help create a new path!
