Why Participate?

This is Sustain Charlotte's seventh year hosting Biketoberfest and we are excited to bring you more ways to experience the city than ever before. 

In 2021, we are revisiting one of the original goals of Biketoberfest - highlighting multimodal transportation. What does that mean? You will not only get to explore Charlotte from Southend to NoDa, but you can choose to do so by using both the light rail AND your bike. That's right: this year's route incorporates the Blue Line, one of the great examples of public transit in Charlotte. 

Your participation will demonstrate how easy it is to choose more sustainable travel within Charlotte. You can also help Sustain Charlotte provide valuable feedback to the city about how we can continue to improve biking infrastructure - all while having a fun time!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

​Biketoberfest raises money for Sustain Charlotte, a 501(c)3 charitable organization that educates, engages, and unites residents to address the numerous sustainability challenges that has accompanied our rapid growth. 

During Sustain Charlotte's ten-year history, the mission has been to inspire choices that advance our equity, environment, and economy for generations to come. Now more than ever, it's important that we think beyond our current crisis to how the decisions we make today will affect our community tomorrow.

​With community support from local residents like YOU, we're working to inspire choices that lead to a healthy, equitable, and vibrant community for generations to come.
