The Battery2Beach Route (B2B) is an initiative of Charleston Moves and a proposed new foundation of a regional Charleston people-powered connectivity plan. The route will cover 24 miles from Isle of Palms through downtown Charleston to Folly Beach. Marked by distinctive signage, the goal is to make the route safe enough for bicycle riders of all ages and abilities.
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.
