Mobile Workshop – Cross the City, Make the Ride, Enjoy the View, & Feel the Vibe

1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Explore the beautiful Queen City by riding a bicycle along the Cross Charlotte Trail (XCLT)!

You’ll experience existing segments of the trail and learn about new segments in the works that will create new bike and pedestrian options for a “car-lite” lifestyle. Hear how the city and county partnered and combined recreation with transportation, and how the XCLT is triggering public-private partnerships and significant new development.

This mobile tour will include several stops along the bike ride where you will hear from City and County officials, private developers, neighborhood leaders, and Sustain Charlotte, a local advocacy organization.

The mobile bicycle tour should last 3 hours and cover approximately 8 miles round-trip. B-Cycle bikes will be provided.

Sights and stops you will see on the tour include:

  • The Metropolitan, a successful trail-oriented mixed-use development.
  • Crescent Dilworth, a new trail-oriented apartment complex that fully embraces the trail as an amenity.
  • Captain James Jack Park, an iconic park along one of the “signature urban” sections of trail.
  • Several trail underpasses that separate trail users from automobile traffic.
  • A major stream restoration project.
  • Freedom Park, Charlotte’s signature 98-acre “central park.”
  • Park Road Shopping Center, which was reoriented to take advantage of its proximity to the XCLT.
  • B-Cycle Bike Share stations, one of the largest bike share systems in the Southeast with 24 stations and 200 bikes—and growing!
