Did you know that Tybee Island has been honored as a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists?
Well, it’s true and by earning this designation we have joined an elite group of communities across the United States. After careful review and consultation with local cyclists, the League recognized Tybee Island at the Bronze level, celebrating the City of Tybee Island’s commitment to bicycling. Tybee is one of 179 communities in 44 states recognized by the League of American Bicyclists and one of only two communities in Georgia to earn this four-year honor.
I enjoy seeing my Tybee friends and visitors out riding the island’s bike routes and on the beach throughout the year. But, remember this is Tybee, so don’t be surprised when you see someone towing their kayak or a small boat on a trailer behind their bike. You’ll also be impressed at the bikes that are decorated with flowers and lights and that have unusual horns. Heck, you’re just as liable to see island residents arrive by bike at social events, all decked out in their finery. Most of our bikes have their own cup holders, but just remember to fill them with plastic cups only.
You don’t even have to worry about choosing which friends to join you on a bike ride. Invite all of your friends and hop on the Tybee Island Slow Ride! It really comes in handy if you’re someone who can’t pedal and drink from your plastic cup at the same time. Just hop on, pedal when you can and let the driver worry about keeping it in the road.
