Here's the latest on the now-urgent matter of how we can achieve connectivity over the Ashley River in Charleston for people on foot or on bicycles.
The Post and Courier today (Sunday) published a great editorial supporting the idea of taking one of the four lanes on the Legare Bridge over the Ashley.

Not only that, but the folks in favor of this plan outnumbered those opposed in a brief poll conducted by the Post and Courier. You can see the results by clicking here.
In the meantime, we're swinging into action to form a coalition to support taking a lane over the Ashley for Bike/ped. It's crucial to everything we're doing: the Battery2Beach Route, the West Ashley Greenway, The East Coast Greenway. You name a bike/ped concern (including the Sabbath-keeping of our Orthodox Jewish community) in Charleston and it's directly affected by this.
We have to win. And we've already started contacting multiple organizations to discuss cooperating with them. We need your input on who should be on the list.
Watch this space. We'll soon launch a Facebook page. It can be the central repository of information about who's committed, what we're doing, a place to sign up, a place to sign a petition, join a team, list your employer.
Don't hesitate to drop me a line at email@example.com with suggestions on the Facebook page or any aspect of this campaign.
