Roll with the Mayor to Work

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 5/06/2010 1 comment
I received this info this afternoon in an email from Moira Quinn of Charlotte Center City Partners. Tomorrow morning (Friday), CCCP and the City are holding the Mayor's Ride and Bike to Breakfast. See info below.

This is an important way to show support for cycling in Charlotte and support for making Charlotte a greener, healthier city. The main leg of the bike ride will be from the Dowd YMCA in Dilworth to the Wachovia Atrium in Uptown. And there will be two park and rides for those who want to get a longer ride in before meeting at the Y. Be sure to bring your helmet.
