Traffic in Charlotte becomes more congested with every passing year. Some think part of the answer is more bicycles and the city has been working for years to become more bicycle friendly. Still, it can be dangerous for cyclists to share the road. Sustain Charlotte is now working to bring protected bike lanes to uptown providing a separate space for cyclists - a protected buffer between them and motorists. 

Guests

Jordan Moore – Bicycle Program director at Sustain Charlotte, #IBikeCLT campaign

Ken Tippette – Bicycle Program manager for Charlotte Department of Transportation

Al Bangoura – superintendent of Community and Recreation Center Services, Parks and Recreation, Mecklenburg County
