For those of you who were visiting or live in Sea Pines or a nearby community and drove your motor vehicle to the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing golf tournament this past week, please make a mental note to take your bicycle next year and leave your vehicle at home or where you are staying.
Thanks to a positive collaboration between the RBC Heritage, Sea Pines Community Services Associates and the Hilton Head Island Bicycle Advisory Committee, the Heritage was a bicycle friendly event for the first time. Entrance for ticket-holders through the Sea Pines gates was trouble-free, and marked routes were simple, fast and safe, with experienced, helpful volunteers assisting ticket-holders in parking their bikes conveniently near the tournament's Harbour Town main entrance.
Hundreds of cyclists showed the Royal Bank of Canada and Boeing that Hilton Head Island is a bicycle friendly community that cares about the environment and provides healthy, sensible transportation options.
