Chapel Hill is going for Gold!

Post Date:08/29/2018 11:49 AM

The Town of Chapel Hill has just submitted an application to renew our Bicycle Friendly Community status from the League of American Bicyclists! The Town received recognition for its Bronze status in 2010 and 2014, and we are now going for Gold!

Since our last application, there have been many bike projects that promote active travel, safety, and connectivity. For example, the new Bolin Creek Trail Extension and the Tanyard Branch Trail improvements provide a bicycle and pedestrian connection between the Chapel Hill Community Center and Downtown, the buffered bike lanes on Rosemary Street and Sage Road provide increased safety and comfort for cyclists, and the Downtown bike corrals and fixit station are bike-friendly amenities.

Please fill out a short, 10-15 minute survey to help the League of American Bicyclists better understand local bicycling experiences in Chapel Hill. Your input is greatly valued and we’ll share the news about our award when we receive it in November!

Survey closes on Sunday, September 23rd

Thank you for your help in making Chapel Hill Bicycle Friendly!
