The Queen City gets ready to bike over the next ten days as BIKE! Charlotte kicks off tomorrow morning with the Mayor’s Ride and Bike to Breakfast, 7:30am at the Dowd YMCA where bikers will meet behind the building to bike with Mayor Pat up to the Wachovia Atrium for a delicious breakfast provided by Lola’s.
And you don’t have to look like the bikers in the picture above to participate, most of the week’s events are for all ages and all skill levels. In past years, even unicycles can be spotted amongst the crowd at the mayor’s bike ride.
From Sunday May 3rd to Saturday May 9th, bikers get free rides on CATS bus and rail.
Some other highlights throughout the week include,
Saturday, May 2nd Tour de Yoga — 8:30am — ride to power yoga class and then lunch
Tuesday, May 5th Airport Loop Ride — 6pm — ride around the airport in style
Saturday, May 9th Cycle Charlotte and Crank it Up Music Festival at Amos’ Southend — 5:30pm to 7pm — ride around the city and end up at Amos’ for food and live music!
