The East Coast Greenway, the nation’s longest connected biking and walking route, celebrates 25 years by hosting a 3,000-mile, 68-day river relay, a series of events held in partnership with local organizations on Wed. Oct. 11. In Charleston, the Greenway Alliance is partnering with Charleston Moves, the East Cooper Land Trust, and Keep Charleston Beautiful, for a day full of bike rides and social hours.

In a statement Brent Buice, South Carolina and Georgia coordinator for the East Coast Greenway Alliance says, “Charleston and Mt. Pleasant are priority corridors of the East Coast Greenway in the Southeast. The Alliance is thrilled to work with such enthusiastic partners in creating safe places to walk and bike in the region.”

The day starts with a morning bike ride  at 8:30 a.m., departing from the West Ashley Library at 45 Windermere Blvd., and crossing the Legare Bridge to Cannon Park downtown. This ride will be police-escorted because, in case ya missed it, there still isn’t a bike lane connecting downtown and West Ashley.

Join in an evening bike ride at Charleston Waterfront Park at 5:30 p.m., which takes the Ravenel Bridge bike path Patriots Point and ends at the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina for a social hour, or start at White Point Garden at 6 p.m., ride across Memorial Bridge (again, with a police escort), and join fellow cyclists at Mellow Mushroom Avondale.

You can also participate in a litter sweep of the West Ashley Greenway which convenes on the greenway behind Starbucks (6 Windermere Blvd.) at 6 p.m.
