Join us for a 47-mile East Coast Greenway Cross-Triangle Ride from Durham to Raleigh. Thanks to great recent greenway progress, over 90% of the ride will be on traffic-separated greenways that are part of the East Coast Greenway’s Spine Route from Maine to Florida!
There will be two rest stops along the 47-mile ride. The first at White Oak Church Rd. along the American Tobacco Trail, and the second at Godbold Park in Cary.

The League of American Bicyclists' recommendations for Durham are here. For the second time in a row, Durham was designated a "Bronze" Bicycle Friendly Community. The award from the League starts at the Bronze level, and continue with Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond.
We'll be re-evaluated by the League in 2018, and the city is encouraged to implement as many of the League's recommendations as possible before that time.
Are you interested in becoming a board member? Come to our meet & greet at Fullsteam from 3:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday! You'll have a chance to meet current board members and future ones. And drink a beer or two. We hope to see you there!

Durham Deserves Better.
The tragic news of three Durham cyclists killed by motorists in just six weeks shines a bright spotlight on the current state of bicycling in Durham.
While it is true that no glaring changes have occurred in our cycling community in recent months that can be cited as potential causes for these tragedies, it is equally true that the city, county and state are not doing enough to mitigate them. Durham development and density continues to increase and infrastructure for cyclists is not keeping pace.
