Organized by the Direct Democracy Project, bicyclists rode down the Main Street corridor to assert their right to be on the street and promote bicycle safety on the road. In recent weeks, bicycle advocates have been pushing for bike lanes on the Main Street corridor and more bike infrastructure in town.
About 25 people participated in the critical mass, which rode up Main Street to Beaufort and then on to the Normal Round-a-bout.
Participants intend on continuing the critical mass tradition the last Friday of the month, 5:30 pm, starting at the Old Courthouse.
Below are pictures of the action.
