Whether you want to ride a mile or all 39 miles – everyone is welcome to join in for the Cross Triangle Greenway Kick-Off Event on October 22nd. The East Coast Greenway Alliance, the organizer of the ride, is excited to work with dozens of local partners to establish a safe and accessible route for bicyclists and pedestrians to get from one Triangle community to another.

That Friday, starting at noon at the NC Museum of Art (which is located along the Reedy Creek Trail, in case you’d like to ride there as well), there will be some opening remarks and then by 12:25 p.m. everyone will hit the trails rolling.

This ride will pass through beautiful sections of Umstead State Park, Bond Park in Cary, roll into Chatham County along the White Oak Greenway and then up the American Tobacco Trail before a finale celebration in Durham at the American Tobacco Campus lawn by the Durham Bulls Stadium around 5:30 p.m. NC Secretary of Transportation Eugene Conti and others will be on hand to show their enthusiasm about the project!

Those interested in participating are requested to RSVP or send questions to
