Charleston Moves’ Commute on King ride set for Feb. 24

Join Charleston Moves and Affordabike on Friday, February 24 for an extra special Commute on King. Following an all-ages downtown group ride (that adheres to all traffic laws), we'll meet back at the shop for D'Allesandro's Pizza, beer and film screening of the iconic movie, Breaking Away.

The ride will leave Affordabike at 5:30pm, ending back at the shop for pizza, beer and film screening at 7pm. Per usual, the ride is FREE. If you'd like to stay for the film and refreshments, get tickets here: https://coldestdayoftheyearride.eventbrite.com/.

We will also raffle off a bike from the Little 500 race as seen in the movie! Breaking Away, 1979 Academy Award and Golden Globe winner, tells the tale of "a small-town boy obsessed with the Italian cycling team [who] vies for the affections of a college girl."

“It is important for Charleston to come together on bicycles. Not only are we building community and making our streets safer, but we highlight the preciousness of our urban space,” said Savannah Brennan, Acting Executive Director of Charleston Moves. “10 bikes can park in the space required for 1 car. When we look at our narrow, historic streets within the context of a development boom, that needs to be at the forefront of the conversation.”

Charleston Moves is a nonprofit organization advocating for enhanced conditions for walking and riding a bike in Charleston County. Our work hinges on three approaches to creating a safe, connected and livable Charleston: advocacy, safety and community.
