There is a great opportunity for us to have a true multi modal West Franklin street. Added benefits are a calmer street for crossing on foot. The town of Chapel Hill is proactively taking advantage of an opportunity that has arisen from the re paving of this street of Franklin st. Please look at these resources and offer your feedback by March 30th – That is this Monday. Use part of your weekend to take a look at these designs
We have not shared this recently. Time to fix that. The town continues to maintain a ‘wiki map’ to allow the public to specify areas the town needs to focus on and help in planning for bicycling facilities. It is our understanding the town is actively using this data to assist in planning and prioritization
John Pucher, an expert on city cycling, will give a free lecture at the Chapel Hill Library on Thurs., Feb. 19, at 3 p.m. The lecture will be “Making Chapel Hill a Sustainable Community: Improving Walking, Cycling and Transit.” Sponsored by Chapel Hill Alliance for a Livable Town, CHALT.

BACH had a great turnout at the holiday parade. Plenty of bikes, and plenty of cargo! One bike actually carried a full size Christmas tree! We set up a bike to carry hot coffee for parade watchers , courtesy of Carrboro Coffe Co. Here is BACH member, John Rees, showing off the bike.
Join BACH, the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition, The RecycleRy, Carolina Tarwheels and cyclists from near and far for the Chapel Hill / Carrboro holiday parade!

Feeder Rides: BACH is offerings feeder rides to the event & back after the movie for people to ride to the event in a group. The feeder rides meet at 5:15 at the Pool Parking lot in Southern Village and the Performance Bike shop in East Gate and leave precisely at 5:30pm to be at the Wallace Deck in time for the cruiser ride and require people to bring lights and possibly warmer clothes for the nightly ride back home.
