Mount Pleasant Mayor Swails, Police Chief Carl Ritchie and several of the bike patrol members met up at Santi’s 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 so they could join the Battery2Beach ride which had begun at the Isle of Palms Marina.

Isle of Palms Mayor Dick Cronin helped Charleston Moves kick off the ride around 8:15 that morning at the marina. The group rode through Old Mount Pleasant to Coleman Boulevard and then crossed the Ravenel Bridge.

Two other groups rode the B2B route, one remained on the peninsula since the James Island Connector and the Ashley River Bridges aren’t safe enough for bikes to cross yet. The other group rode from Folly Road to the pier at Folly Beach.

The B2B route is 32 miles long and runs from the Isle of Palms Marina to the Charleston peninsula all the way to Folly Beach. It is an initiative of Charleston Moves and is being administrated by the B2B Task Force, chaired by Charleston County Council member Colleen Condon. Much of the route will receive special B2B signage by the end of 2013.
