I liked the article and agree we all need to take responsibility for making biking safer. We enjoy biking around Johns Island and James Island, but sometimes the unforgiving attitude of car drivers gives us pause. We see biking clubs riding out here all the time. Sometimes they ride for miles in large groups taking up the entire roadway. This is not a momentary inconvenience for cars, either; sometimes you will follow them for miles and they make no attempt to let cars pass. While the 'rules' may grant them use of the entire roadway, perhaps they should realize that THEY share the road too. So, there are some unfortunate attitudes on all sides of this right of way issue. Perhaps some additional bike lanes need to be in place at key intersections where bikers need access to roadways such as the Connector.
My wife and I would do more biking around Johns Island, but the unfriendly and sometimes dangerous attitudes of car drivers gives us pause. James Island park is a wonderful haven for bikers, but there are no bike lanes on any of the approach roads to the park?
Read the article with interest. We have been to red's, Vickery's, and Shem Creek B&G, all were very good. The Wreck drew some interest because we had not heard of it. The reviews in the City Paper were another story, not much in the way of good, very negative overall. How could this place be featured as a 'not to miss'?????? When you do this type of misleading article, your credibility suffers. A lot.
