The Town of Carrboro invites you to ride on over to some great bike events coming up in town!
Lighten Up, Carrboro
Wednesday, Nov. 8 is the annual Lighten Up Event in partnership with Chapel Hill and UNC-Chapel Hill. The Town will be tabling at the end of the Libba Cotten Bikeway near Roberson Street from 4 to 6 p.m.
Lighten Up is a safety-focused event that equips current commuters and recreative cyclists and pedestrians with lights and reflective safety gear as a part of our Transportation Demand Management program. Town staff will be distributing lights and slap bracelets and will have information for pedestrians and cyclists for traffic and crosswalk safety.
Life on Wheels
Think bicycles are just for recreation? Think again! That bicycle in your garage can replace so many of your trips taken by car.
Join BikeCarrboro, Bicycle Alliance of Chapel Hill and the Town of Carrboro at South Green, located at 501 S. Greensboro St. in Carrboro, on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a day of fun and learn how to make your bike do more!
There will be a Bike Zoo filled with various bikes that people have set up to carry more than just the rider -- groceries, kids, packages, etc. Learn how to put your bike on a Chapel Hill Transit bus bike rack. Not sure what type of bike is right for you? Several local bike shops will be on hand so you can try out different bikes including cargo bikes and e-bikes.
There will be a traffic garden for the kids, games, bike checks, giveaways, food and more. Join us and see what Life on Wheels is all about!
