May Is Bike Month

Post Date:04/19/2017 9:08 AM

The Town of Chapel Hill and Go Chapel Hill-UNC-Carrboro support special events during the month of May to celebrate Bike Month.

Do you walk, bike, run and wheel around Chapel Hill? The Town of Chapel Hill is busy with projects to improve your travel safety and convenience – including sidewalks, streets, trails and greenways, traffic calming and more.  The Town of Chapel Hill's focus on “complete streets” includes traffic slowing measures, public transit, and safe walkways and bike lanes.

Chapel Hill voters authorized $16.2 million in bonds funds in 2015 to repair, connect and construct sidewalks and bike lanes to improve connectivity and safety, and $5 million for construction of new trails and greenways. Learn more about projects underway and coming up at Town of Chapel Hill Getting Around.  

To access resources for people who bike and walk—including a wikimap—visit The wikimap offers residents an opportunity to provide comments to the Town of Chapel Hill about problem areas and routes they would like to ride and request additional bike parking.
