Commute Smart Raleigh, Raleigh Union Station, and Raleigh Arts teamed up to commission local artist J.P. Powell to paint a mural at the Raleigh Union Station bike racks. The mural reflects the multi-modal connectivity of bike and rail and is meant to inspire the joy of cycling.
The project originated from several ideas on how to continue creating awareness for National Bike Month while maintaining social distance in 2021.
Bike Month is a celebration established in 1956 and promoted by the League of American Bicyclists, which has been part of communities from coast to coast ever since. The City of Raleigh has been celebrating Bike Month locally for over 10 years.
