Choose a Bike Rack Location
Help us improve our bike parking program! The City is partnering with SeeClickFix to allow citizens to make requests for new bike racks through November 29th.
Just follow these easy steps:
- Go to SeeClickFix
- Select “Report an Issue” and enter your preferred location for a new rack
- In the Category drop down menu, select “Pick a Bike Rack Location!”
- If a request has already been made at this location, hit the “like” button
Since the bike rack program is limited to the City's public rights-of-way, any requests received for new bike racks on private property or on non-city owned facilities will not be evaluated.
If you believe that a bike rack is warranted on private property (libraries, schools, colleges, big box retail, etc.), we encourage you to contact the property owner and/or the building manager to let them know that you are interested in convenient bicycle parking.
If you have any trouble using SeeClickFix or want to submit locations for new bike racks directly, contact BikeRaleigh@raleighnc.gov.
Hot Off the Press!
The new BikeRaleigh Map is now available! The map highlights existing on-road bicycle facilities, CAT routes, the greenway system, and popular destinations. Also featured, is a system of preferred routes that are intended to help cyclists plan their trips. These routes were selected based on cyclist feedback, existing conditions, destinations, and connectivity. These routes may not be suitable for all experience levels, so please use caution when planning your trip.

We Need Your Feedback!
We had extensive public outreach during the development of this BikeRaleigh Map, but we recognize it's hard to comment on a product that you haven't actually used. With that in mind, we printed the map in limited quantities to give you the opportunity to use the map and provide comments and suggestions. We'll compile all of the feedback we receive at the end of the year and make edits to the map before printing a larger quantity.
To send us your comments, email BikeRaleigh@raleighnc.gov.
