May 15th – Charleston Cycle Chic Ride (3 miles)Posted: May 3, 2009
Join us for the Charleston Cycle Chic Ride for CharlestonMoves on National Bike to Work Day
What: May 15 is National Bike to Work Day, so all you ladies in Charleston, whether you bike to work, just ride around town, or have been staring at your beach cruiser in the garage for months – show your bike some love and join us at high noon on Marion Square. Wear what you love, because we’re gonna show this town “It’s not about the spandex”. We’ll be riding in thanks to CharlestonMoves, for helping to make Charleston an even better place to live.
When: Friday, May 15. 12:00PM-1:00PM
Where: Meet at Marion Square (corner of King and Calhoun), then ride down King St, around the Battery, up East Bay, left on Market, right on Meeting and back to Marion Square. It’s about 3 miles, and please, could the views be more gorgeous? Click here to access the Google Map.
Purpose: As part of an effort to bridge the bicycle gap between the ‘jocks’ and the ‘hipsters’ and promote the biking lifestyle in Charleston, Charleston Cycle Chic is about encouraging women of all ages and lifestyles to get on a bicycle. We want to demonstrate to women that bicycling doesn’t have to involve spandex and fancy road bikes. It can be part of their everyday lives, while wearing everyday clothes. We will join the movement across Europe, in San Francisco and New York and let Charleston women know….It’s chic to ride!
