National Bike Month is celebrated annually in communities from coast to coast. It is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — for work, fun or fitness — and to encourage more people to try it. Raleigh's free bike month events encourage riders, novice or experienced, to enjoy all that bicycling has to offer.
GoRaleigh loves bicyclists! Did you know that each of our buses has a rack on the front that can hold up to two bicycles? To celebrate Bike Month, we came out with a new how-to video for loading and unloading your bike. Use your bicycle for part of your trip and the bus for the rest, or take your bicycle to a park!
