The North Carolina Active Transportation Alliance (NCATA) is a membership-based, statewide advocacy organization promoting non-motorized transportation choices for residents of and visitors to NC. Our members include shop owners, cycling clubs, transportation professionals, local advocacy organizations, elected officials and various individual advocates across the state interested in promoting people-powered transportation.
Oriented toward transportation engineers, planners, and police, but open to all adults, this intensive 9-hour on-bike training course teaches the fundamentals of safe, efficient, and lawful bicycle driving in urban traffic. Participants enhance their bike handling skills, increase their confidence in traffic, and improve their understanding of how state traffic laws support successful bicycling. Implications for transportation planning, facility design, and law enforcement are discussed. Students receive certification for completing League of American Bicyclists Traffic Skills 101. Inexperienced bicyclists are welcome and encouraged to attend. Students must bring their own bicycle in good working order, a helmet, water bottle, and clothing comfortable for bicycling.
Course Fee: $50 advance registration. Discount available for NCATA members. Proceeds go to the North Carolina Active Transportation Alliance

An apartment community developer based in NC wants to know bicyclists' preferences for storing and securing their bicycles. What type of parking and security do you prefer, and what other amenities are desired? Please take the online survey here:
I am developing apartment communities in the Southeast, including one in downtown Raleigh. I would like our communities to cater to cyclists, but need a little more input from the cycling community on the preference of bike storage in apartment communities. I was wondering if you would share this quick survey with your members or other groups of people who own bikes? It is only 9 easy questions.
The survey below examines bike storage preferences for apartment residents. I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer the following quick survey (9 easy questions): https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BikeStorage
Thank you very much. I would be happy to discuss this project further, including the design of our “Cycle Center” apartment amenity, with anyone interested. My contact info is below.
