Open Streets Carrboro promotes community life
Stephan Grabner, junior, Philosophy Major, is one of the many locals that enjoy the first days of Spring biking on one of the several biking lanes spread throughout Carrboro. In 2011, Carrboro became one of two cities in the southeast to receive a silver level status as a Bicycle Friendly City from The League of American Bicyclist organization.

The inaugural 2011 Bull City Open Streets took place as a part of the Durham Earth Day Festival celebrations on Sunday May 1st from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m. The event, which has been repeated in several occasions since, takes place on the streets around the Durham Farmer’s Market and Durham Central Park. Over 1,100 Durham residents came out to play, walk, run, bike and dance. This Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. to 3p.m. Carrboro will have the first Open Streets Event of its own.(Photo courtesy of Bull City Open Streets Facebook page).[/caption]
Michelle Johnson, who has been on Carrboro’s Board of Aldermen for a year, said she is very excited about the first Open Streets Event in Carrboro. “When The Bicycle Coalition of Carrboro proposed the event at a first meeting, I said right away ‘I want to teach yoga’,” Johnson said. Johnson will teach an all levels adult yoga class Saturday, April 13, the day of the event outside of her office on W. Weaver St. close to the Venable building.
