Bike the Greenway at NC Art Museum
There is nothing more relaxing than a bike ride with your best bud on a sunny day. Good thing Raleigh has an extensive Greenway that has developed into a 100-mile, 3700-acre system and continues to grow!
The City of Raleigh created the greenway in order to preserve Raleigh's striking natural beauty in the midst of the current urban development boom. Reedy Creek Trail, our personal fave stretch of pavement, connects Pullen Park to the NC Art Museum. Bikers of all levels can put their pedals to this pavement. Try not to run into the artwork during your time on the trail, though!
