Event testing for Raleigh's first two-way CycleTrack
Oaks & Spokes, in partnership with the BikeRaleigh
Program and Raleigh’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission, will be testing
Raleigh’s first two-way CycleTrack in Spring 2019. The three-day “pop up cycletrack” will be
installed the first weekend in April from Friday until Sunday afternoon.
project, which is a priority item in the 2016 BikeRaleigh plan, will serve as a
key bicycle connection from Glenwood South to the Warehouse District via Harrington
Street from Davie to Lane Street.
What is a cycle track
+ why do we need them in Raleigh?
A cycle track is a type of bike lane protected from cars,
parked cars, and sidewalks by a physical barrier. By separating bicyclists from motor traffic, cycle
tracks provide a dedicated space for bicyclists and minimize potential
conflicts between people who walk, bike, and drive.
You are invited to come ride the test track, provide your feedback, and learn more about Raleigh biking!
Where: Harrington Street, from Davie to Morgan
Time: 5 p.m.
