You're invited! Please join us for a police-escorted bike ride over the North Bridge and along key North Charleston corridors we are working to upgrade. This is a unique opportunity to catch amazing views of the Ashley River between North Charleston and West Ashley, while supporting our work to build a Better North Bridge. We will begin and end the ride at Freehouse Brewery.

We will start promptly at 2 pm, so please arrive no later than 1:30 pm. We kindly request that you fill out our waiver in advance; it is required to participate.

The ride is nearly 8 miles and should take about an hour. Following, we hope you'll stick around with us to enjoy beverages, food and live music at Freehouse Brewery's beautiful outdoor space along the Ashley River. Thank you to Freehouse for generously donating $1/pint to support a Better North Bridge!

If you do not have a bike but want to participate, email (deadline to request is September 25).

Your participation helps us demonstrate critical mass, and your support helps us continue prioritizing this vital safety and quality-of-life project. We sincerely hope you join us, and ask that you please consider donating. We need you with us!

Note: Parking is available at and around Freehouse Brewery. We highly encourage you to walk, ride your bike, carpool or bus to the event. Also, this event will adhere to local ordinances and CDC guidance related to COVID-19 and the Delta variant to ensure participant safety.

The North Bridge spans the Ashley River between West Ashley and North Charleston, and currently lacks space for people walking and biking. Being a priority project, we have been working diligently to coordinate with local governments, state agencies, elected officials and the community. We have conducted multiple rounds of surveying and data collection to better inform our advocacy and include residents who are most impacted by the dangerous conditions. Despite great progress on this critical groundwork, and successfully advocating for a conceptual study, these milestones are just the beginning. Through 2021 and 2022, we will continue our community outreach and surveying, build up widespread support, and push for assistance from the state to fund a standalone bicycle and pedestrian bridge.
