Charlotte's Big Bingo Bike Ride, held on the final weekend of BIKE! Charlotte and benefitting Charlotte Area Bicycle Alliance is an urban safe street BINGO bicycle ride and cycling festival that will attract friends and family from around the region to South End Charlotte. Historic South End will serve as the anchor for this exciting event. Cycle Charlotte is NOT your typical spandex bicycle ride. This ride is a family friendly ride designed to encourage anyone and everyone who owns a bicycle to "air up" the tires and EXPERIENCE CHARLOTTE WITHOUT A WINDSHIELD on a fun 18 mile BINGO ride.

Our intention is to give riders an opportunity to enjoy a leisurely ride thru Uptown Charlotte, NODA, Plaza Midwood, the entire length of the newly expanded Sugar Creek Greenway, Myers Park, & East Blvd. There will be 11 to 12 stops along the ride where participants will pick up BINGO numbers.  The stops will include ice cream shops, coffee stops, chocolate stores, and opportunities to smell some roses, pet turtles and feed some birds. It will be a great opportunity to Experience Charlotte without a windshield and many unique stops along the route.

At the conclusion of the ride, participants who "make BINGO" will be entered into a raffle for great prizes.  After the ride, enjoy food and beverages from Icehouse and live music with Willy Evans & Tom Kuhn.

2013 BIKE! T-shirts will be given out to all participants...while supplies last.

 More ride info, route maps and route stops are listed on the the "The Ride" page.
