We hate to draw any of the well-deserved spotlight from the 67 new Bicycle Friendly Businesses we announced today, but we just had to take a moment to commend the efforts of the University of South Carolina. Last month, USC was designated a Bronze Bicycle Friendly University — and they sure came up with a brilliant and fun way to celebrate the award.
Yesterday, their campus streets were alive with bicyclists during the “Travel Lightly Parade.” The festive gathering was attended, not only by students, but the university president, Dr. Harris Pastides, as well. Way to go, South Carolina!
