areg_blue_lgThanks to all of the Trailblazers who joined us on Sunday, November 08, 2009, 9:00 AM!  See below for a slideshow of ride photos!

Do you ever wonder why it has to be so dangerous to ride a bike between Tybee and Savannah? Wouldn’t it be great to have safe access, and to open up a whole new outlet for locals and tourists to make day trips between Savannah and the beach on a bike? We think so, and we hope you can join us on this ride to highlight the need to make a safe connection. We’ll ride from Tybee City Hall to Savannah with a police escort to keep us all safe.  Route covers 22 miles including a quick spin around Tybee to see the sights.

Net proceeds from the ride will go to support the ongoing effort to build the Coastal Georgia Greenway, the master-planned project for 450 miles of multi-use trail in coastal Georgia, although raising awareness is the primary goal of the ride.  Part of the proposed trails network of the Coastal Georgia Greenway is a connection between Tybee and Savannah, and the Greenway project needs all of our help to make it happen.

We encourage all to become involved in the Coastal Georgia Greenway project at coastalgeorgiagreenway.org.
