Hilton Head

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.

It is a town that is trying its best to become cycling friendly. It boasts 50 miles of bike paths, so I would say that is a good start.

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.

Having just been there, I'd have to agree that they have done a nice job of building a biking infrastructure. I hope you didn't try to ride down into the Sea Pines area. They were mighty, mighty picky about that last year and I got a "yelling at" when a security guard confused me with another cyclist, who had actually ridden down in there. :) We enjoyed a good visit at the bike shop (Road Fish) just outside of Plantation Dunes. I'd be interested to know if you found a place where you could really open it up and get some training done. Most of what we found was excellent (but slow) bike paths that literally gave you access to most every where on the island.

I look forward to your write-up!

Dave it's def a cycling shoe, and the creek is the strap. Brilliant.

How on earth could a sane human being think that the island looks like anything other than a cycling shoe?
