Carolinas Dealer Tour, Day 2: Infrastructure connectivity a challenge as Charlotte cycling community grows

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (BRAIN) — On its final day in Charlotte, Bicycle Retailer’s Carolinas Dealer Tour covered a wide range of shops and a sizable geographical area as it traveled from Uptown Charlotte to the city’s southern reaches.  The group was fortunate to have local advocate Jordan Moore, who formerly ran the bicycle program for Sustain Charlotte, a nonprofit dedicated to addressing the city’s sustainability challenges, guide us through the city as we navigated city streets and a maze of greenways to visit four shops. The tour covered about 28 miles on day two.  As the group made its way east toward the first shop of the day, Espada Bicycles, we saw firsthand the challenges cyclists face making safe connections to the city’s greenways, its sole separated bike lane and other designated lanes as they ride from outlying neighborhoods to Uptown Charlotte.  Moore said the city is working to improve connectivity, including a push to build a separated bikeway along Trade Street, which would connect Uptown with the 4-mile-long Little Sugar Creek Greenway — Charlotte’s longest and busiest.  And, an expansion of the city’s Lynx Blue Line light rail train currently underway will include the addition of several more miles to the rail trail network that connects Uptown with neighborhoods southwest of the city center. The easterly expansion into the redeveloped North Davidson, or NoDa, neighborhood and others should greatly improve connectivity to Uptown and the rest of the city.  Steve Maleski, who owns and operates Espada Bicycles in NoDa, is looking forward to the rail trail completion, which he anticipates will bring even more riders and commuters past the store.
