A few weeks ago, we took up an opportunity offered by SCDOT to present at a statewide conference for regional planners.  Gratefully, we accepted and partnered with SCDOT’s Elizabeth Thebo and ALTA Planning’s Jean Crowther.  The Coalition presented on HOW one can fit bike accommodations (and pedestrian, to a lesser extent) into the existing pavement Right-of-Way […]

For now the 12th year in a row, we attended the National Bike Summit in DC and coordinated the SC delegation on Lobby day.
