Biking from the Epicenter to Freedom Park?

It's hard to get an idea of how big a city Charlotte is without visiting first. We are most likely going to stay at a hotel near the Epicenter and wondering how far of a bike ride it would be to go to Freedom Park?

Thanks!

It's certainly doable, and should be a nice ride. You can take Trade Street straight down to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway just past 277 and then ride the Greenway all the way to Freedom Park. Trade Street is downhill all the way to the Greenway (uphill going back), and I probably wouldn't do it during a weekday rush hour. More info on the Greenway:

You can stop off at the Metropolitan development for some food or drink, right on the Greenway:

The greenway looks wonderful, thanks for the info. We will be in town for one day without a car and this is a great option to use while walking around

In case Finsky hasn't made this trip yet, Trade Street is under construction down near 277 which may require a detour of a block or two to the west. May not be an issue on the weekends.
