THE LIFE & VISION OF EDWIN GARDNER
A Short Bicycle Ride Around Downtown Charleston
Saturday, July 31st @ 9 a.m.
Start/Finish Cannon Park (Calhoun Street between Ashley and Rutledge)
We invite folks of all ages, and not just those in cycling groups, to ride together to celebrate Edwin and his vision for Charleston. Bring your kids.
The ride will stay below the Crosstown and will have a police escort. Participants are invited to ride everyday bikes and wear everyday clothes. This is not an exclusive event for “cyclists” but a chance for all to enjoy Charleston streets by bike, the way Edwin did everyday.
We celebrate Gardner as a spectacularly complete person. Edwin was a bicycle advocate like Thomas Jefferson was a farmer. Daily bicycling was a part of the ideal life he championed.
Bike helmets encouraged.
Breakfast and fellowship after the Ride at Cannon Park.
