7 Murals + 7 Stories @ The Cardinal | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Join us for a slow Sunday afternoon ride between 7 of Raleigh’s awesome murals (< 10 mile ride). We’ll be starting at the Cardinal Bar at the Lion and the Bike mural and we’ll end the ride at Neptune’s for 7 Stories, a monthly story-telling event where local folks share personal stories based on a central theme. We will stop at each mural for some fun photos and background on the mural. This will be a great ride for all ages and abilities.

To be kind to the Cardinal Bar for hosting us- if you plan on driving to the ride PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE CARDINAL BAR PARKING LOT. There is street parking on West Street and in other locations downtown that might make more sense since this is a point to point ride.
