The Town of Carrboro is joining with the Town of Chapel Hill and UNC-Chapel Hill to remind everyone to “Lighten Up.”
As the days get shorter, it’s important to be visible when out walking and biking. Wearing bright or reflective clothing and using bike lights and reflectors can help you stay safe.
There will be a table set up at the Carrboro end of the Libba Cotton Bikeway on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. offering coupons for free bike inspections at local bike shops. Coupons will be good through the end of December.
Mayor Damon Seils will be leading the inaugural Lighten Up bike ride. The ride begins at Carrboro Town Hall at 5 p.m. The route will run down E. Main St., utilizing the new bike lanes, and circle through town before ending back at Carrboro Town Hall.

Everyone is welcome and remember to grab your helmets and charge up those bike lights!
