Ashley River Bike plan to be announced today

I don’t know if you ever tried to cross the Ashley River on your bike: I did a few days ago and besides creating a mammoth traffic jam behind me (yes, it was just before 8 am) I also was scared to death!

Once I was on it, it was too late to stop, get off and walk my bike across the cantilever part of the bridge: the metal mesh is extremely slippery even on a sunny day and my thin tires had a hard time staying on a steady course!

I did it once but would be dreading the experience if I had to do it every day! I cant wait for news of an approved dedicated path for pedestrians and bikers over the Ashley River!! Thank you to Charleston Moves and Mayor Riley!
