We’ve ‘talked’ about all of the Bike to Work events throughout the month (with more yet to come), but this morning’s Got to Ride NC event in Raleigh was a great success. With 100 riders rolling down Hillsborough Street at rush hour, from the State Fairgrounds to the State Capitol Lawn, this event was meant to improve safety and awareness between cyclists and motorists and encourage cycling as a transportation option in Raleigh – even if you do need to combine with bike on bus or use a Park and Ride.
Check out these photos of some of the riders, volunteers and sponsors that truly led this to be an awareness ride. Thanks to all!
