Historic Bike Ride with RHDC & BPAC

Historic Preservation Bike Ride

Saturday, May 4 (Rain Date if needed: May 11)
Crank Arm Brewing 
10 a.m. to noon

May is Preservation Month and Bike Month! Hop on your bike for a ride into history. The Raleigh Historic Development Commission (RHDC), in partnership with the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC), will be hosting a bike ride that will begin and end at Crank Arm Brewing. The 6-mile route includes stops at five Raleigh Historic Landmarks including:  

- Dr. M. T. Pope House
- Lemuel and Julia Delany House
- St. Agnes Hospital
- Mary Elizabeth Hospital
- Seaboard Coast Line Railroad Building

RHDC volunteers at each site will share a brief history of the property. Riders are encouraged to bring their own bikes and helmets. Limited bike rentals will be available through the Bike Library at Crank Arm. A few free Cardinal Share e-bikes will also be available.

While the ride route prioritizes bike-friendly streets, there are several hills along the way. Water and restrooms are not provided along the route. QR codes to a digital route map and group bike leads & sweeps will help ensure everyone bikes safely along the route. Register to attend. 

See the mobile history tour with information about each stop on Check back here before May 4 for further details.
