Traffic in Charlotte becomes more congested with every passing year. Some think part of the answer is more bicycles and the city has been working for years to become more bicycle friendly. Still, it can be dangerous for cyclists to share the road. Sustain Charlotte is now working to bring protected bike lanes to uptown providing a separate space for cyclists – a protected buffer between them and motorists.
