Join fellow community members on a leisurely ride through Davidson and Cornelius. The ride will leave from the Caldwell Station Creek Greenway trail head in front of Foamex. On-site registration for the ride opens at 8 a.m. and the ride departs at 8:30 a.m. This 8-mile ride will start on the greenway, wind through quiet neighborhood streets in east Cornelius, travel down the South Prong Rocky River Greenway in Davidson, and loop back to the start via the bike path along Bailey Road in Cornelius, finishing back at the greenway at approximately 10 a.m. Anyone age 14 and older is welcome; participants ages 14-17 must be accompanied by an adult. Helmets are required and a bike with gears is recommended. Families with younger children wishing to ride the greenway should attend the grand opening celebration beginning at 10 a.m.
Caldwell Station Creek Greenway Celebration
Be a part of the official celebration for Cornelius' newest greenway, which kicks off at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. After the ceremony, the Trail Run will begin. Once the runners take off, all visitors will be able to walk at their leisure along the greenway and enjoy vendors, entertainment, concessions, arts & crafts, and other activities for all ages. Bring your entire family to enjoy what will be the first of many greenway openings in Cornelius!
Lake Norman Bike Expo
This annual event will feature bike demos from area bike shops, educational opportunities regarding bike safety and maintenance, and information about the best places to ride your bike in the Lake Norman/North Mecklenburg region. We will have information on new greenways that are currently under development, along with maps from the Town’s recently adopted bicycle master plan. The Davidson Parks & Recreation will have their new solar-electric Elf bike on display along with information on their recreational programming. The bike expo will be open 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
