Cycling Singer in Concert for Charleston Moves

Rachel Van Slyke, the bicycling singer-songwriter, is performing a benefit concert for Charleston Moves at 8pm, April 13 at Home Team Barbecue, 1205 Ashley River Rd.

The cycling chanteuse is spending a half-year touring the country giving benefit concerts for "green" organizations (especially bicycling and walking advocacy groups).

The event is being sponsored by the Charleston Bicycle Company which is selling raffle tickets for a brand new Jamis bike to be awarded at the concert. Stop by the shop at 1319 Savannah Highway and buy a few to support this cool event and worthy cause! And check out Rachel Van Slyke's website!
