The Cape Fear Council of Governments was awarded a planning grant from the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to develop a regional comprehensive bicycle transportation plan. The purpose of this plan is to identify opportunities and constraints for bicycling in the Cape Fear region, and to establish recommendations for improvement.

The Cape Fear Regional Bicycle Plan covers Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, and Pender Counties as well as southern Bladen, western Onslow, and southern Sampson Counties.
After a year-long planning process, with input from a steering committee and more than 450 residents, a full draft of the Cape Fear Regional Bicycle Plan is now available for public download, review, and comment on the project website:
