College of Charleston Student Government Association auctioned off some 80 bikes in various states of repair (or disrepair) today, collecting over $3,000.
Charleston Moves took its position at the auction to attach safe bike riding literature and to tell attendees about our efforts in and around Charleston.
The event photos can be seen here.
Senate Bill 1375, to allow Charleston to declare an exception to the freeway bike ban for the James Island Connector, is in the home stretch toward final approval. It has made it through two Senate committees and the full Senate, and now is in the House Transportation and Education Committee. We are optimistic that it will clear the full House before the end of May.
