The days are shorter and light less outside now and with this comes less visibility. If cycling or walking be sure that others see you by making sure to add lights to the front and back of your clothes or bicycles. The more light, the more likely you will be seen and the safer you could be while walking and cycling.
Local bicycle stores are offering a 10% coupon good through the end of December 2019! Pick up a Lighten Up Coupon including some of the NC Bike and Pedestrian Laws along with the coupon at local bicycle stores and Chapel Hill Town Hall!
Go Chapel Hill… Lighten Up for More Safe Cycling and Walking!
The Town Staff took to the streets in Chapel Hill to get new perspective on just how easy or not-so-easy the streets are to navigate as a cyclist. Staff noticed bike lanes could be added, lines re-painted, and some bike lanes being used as loading zones. Staff also tested bicycles and noted differences in riding regular bicycles and electric bicycles including navigation, quick take off, weight and ease of loading a bike on bus with each type of bicycle.
Steps will now be considered for scheduling re-striping of faded lines, location of possible new bicycle lanes, need for bollards to protect bike lanes from being used in loading zones and other observations for improvements.
