I’m proud to say that little ole Charlotte NC has the same bike program as Paris France (I believe they call it Velo) whereby you rent a bike and ride around, and return it to the location of your choice. I haven’t tried it yet, but its on my to-do list (I promise)!

Bike Share Bland StationIt’s hard to believe that Charlotte’s bike share program (Charlotte B-Cycle) is a year old! It’s been cool to watch this program take off as I’ve seen folks on B-Cycles all over town. This Wednesday, Charlotte B-Cycle is hosting a press conference at 10am at the New Bern Light Rail Station to celebrate their first anniversary and to share some exciting news about expanding bike share stations. Come join us to celebrate and to learn about the expansion. The official save the date with details is below.
