Charleston Moves Work to Bike Party

When: Fri., May 18, 6:30-10 p.m. 2012

You know that statistic about how most people drive their cars despite living less than two miles from where they need to go? That’s definitely true for some of us at the City Paper, but we’re not going to name any names. But maybe we’ll take the opportunity that is Bike to Work Week and get on two wheels for at least a few days thanks to local events hosted by Charleston Moves. They’ll kick things off on Wednesday with a Ride of Silence to honor those who have lost their lives while cycling. Friday is the official Bike to Work Day, so various area Piggly Wigglys will offer breakfast treats to bicyclists. And the free Work to Bike Party at the Hippodrome will have New Belgium beer, a silent auction, and live music from Satellite Rodeo. “Charleston Moves would love for every week to be Bike to Work for people — it’s such a pleasant, affordable and healthy way to get around the Charleston area,” Chair Stephanie Hunt says. “We hope folks will give it a try on Friday, if not on other days.”
