Join us for our Just Ride group bike rides, Tuesdays in May!
May 15 Schedule:
• 5:30pm — Meet at Bridgeview Apartments (108 N. Romney Street)
• 6pm — Roll out!
• 6:45pm — FREE light refreshments and snacks, and information on Just Ride and People Pedal CHS
The focus of these rides is to create a comfortable group experience for new riders to get out and enjoy the streets — even if you don't own a bike, since each ride will start and end at bike share stations. Our Just Ride Community Ambassadors can give you information on the latest affordable bike share membership option. We will have a bike mechanic on site for any basic repairs during our first ride (May 8), who will also give advice on bike maintenance. We'll enjoy a short ride together, and then have delicious snacks.
What is Just Ride? Enough Pie, Charleston Moves, Gotcha Bike, and the City of Charleston have partnered to place bike share stations in upper peninsula neighborhoods, as well as offering an annual $5 membership option that can be paid with cash, check or card and purchased from community centers in the upper peninsula. Just Ride expands access to everyone, accommodating varying abilities to pay, and allowing all to add bike share to their transportation and recreation options.
This event is part of AWAKENING: MOTION, a series of public art projects that aims to transform the streets of Charleston’s Upper Peninsula by showcasing what’s possible when communities unite to create safe, connected, dignified transportation.
