Friends & Family DONUT Loop

(Date: January,20 2018)Calendar: Community

Website   FB Event  Bikin Dads

We’re coming back with another installment of our Friends & Family Bike Rides this January! Why January, well in between mini-camps, race seasons, holidays, we’d figure what a good time to reconnect in a non-trail themed ride. Join us, our family & friends on this 4 mile ride that takes place in Concord. Best part, either mid-ride or post ride, we’ll be stopping at the locally owned & family operated Downtown Donuts for their most clever crafted donuts creations & fresh hot coffee!

Another most awesome bit of goodness, is whether you or we get to ride or not; the coffee will be HOT & DONUTS fresh. Downtown Donuts will be donating 20% of every sell to our program. So, be a part of this adventure, let’s earn our donuts together on the ride, then savor every bite together.

Park in the parking lot below the tennis courts at Les Myers Park off of LAWNDALE Ave SE. which runs between UNION Street & BRANCHVIEW. Look for the big concrete donut in picture above, left side of the Community Center. Gather there to launch off into the wild blue.   Wheel’s roll at 1:15PM

Stop by and help the City of Charlotte determine the best way to add sidewalk and bikeway connections along Independence Boulevard from Briar Creek Road to Mason Wallace Park and Campbell Creek Greenway. Using $8 million in capital funds from bonds, the City's Independence Area Sidewalk and Bikeway Improvements (ISB) program calls for several elements to make this area more pedestrian-friendly, improve mobility and add connections. As part of the ISB program, this project seeks to study pedestrian and bicycle improvements that will improve connectivity to schools, services and retail; connect other significant pedestrian and bicycle networks; and provide safe alternative routes for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Bicycle Advisory Committee

The Charlotte City Council approved the City/County Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) on Sept. 13, 1999, by virtue of approving the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Bicycle Transportation Plan. The BAC consists of 11 members - six appointed by City Council, two appointed by the County Commission and three appointed by the ​Mayor's office.

BAC terms are staggered with terms being three years. Council and Mayoral appointees must be residents of Charlotte and County appointees must be residents of Mecklenburg County. All must have an interest in bicycling as a form of transportation.

The BAC is an advisory body to City Council. The committee reviews bicycle plans and makes recommendations on implementing the policies and policy strategies. The BAC also recommends appropriate action to the City Council and County Commission on bicycle transportation issues. The monthly BAC meetings are open to the public. Public attendees have the opportunity to address the commitee at the beginning of each meeting. Previous meeting agendas and minutes are available for review on the BAC website.
