The coast of South Carolina is made up of many tiny islands; a little ways south of here, just north of Savannah, Georgia is Hilton Head Island.
I have just returned from a visit to this 12 mile x 5 mile island where I managed to get in two bike rides. At the moment I have family visiting from England so I don't have time to write a lenthy post.
I will do that later this week with pictures and a full report of what cycling is like on the many bike paths.
Interestingly, the Island is shaped like a cycling shoe. (See map above.) The locals think it is shaped like a sneaker, but I think it is definitly a cycling shoe.
