“Carrboro will be a place that is bicycle-friendly; where people have an accessible, safe, and convenient option of bicycling for transportation, recreation, and health; where bicycle lanes and greenways provide a connected system within and outside the Town; where future development provides access and facilities for bicyclists; where bicycle transportation is the easy choice; and where proposed policies and programs educate, inspire, and encourage residents and enforce safe bicyclist and motorist behavior.”
--Vision from the Comprehensive Bicycle Transportation Plan, adopted by the Board of Aldermen, March 24, 2009
In September 2010, the League of American Bicyclists named the Town of Carrboro a Bicycle Friendly Community at the “Silver” level. Carrboro joined 27 other cities and towns in the country recognized by the League at the Silver level.
