Safety, Education, Access

 

We are working to make Hilton Head Island safer and more bike friendly for everyone.

Whether you are riding on the island’s 134 miles of multi-use pathways, the beach or cycling on the road, the Hilton Head Island Bicycle Advisory Committee is advocating for your safety and access to bike-friendly facilities and for a bike-friendly community. 

 

BICYCLE FRIENDLY

Hilton Head Island has been a League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly Community since 2011. In 2015, our community was awarded the Gold level designation. We are one of five such communities in the state of South Carolina, and the only Gold community in the state.

Hilton Head Island has the honor of being a Gold level Bicycle Friendly Community.

programs

Our programs consist of bike safety education and the Bike Ambassador Program.

There are various opportunities for your community or group to have a safety training session led by our own League Cycling Instructors.

The Bike Ambassadors are volunteers who provide maps, directions and assistance for bikers on the island.

We also work closely with the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island distributing safety vests and information through the Vulnerable Users Vest Program.

EVENTS

Throughout the year BAC teams up with the local organizations to support, plan and volunteer at events all over the island.

From leading community beach bike rides to volunteering with the Kiwanis to park bikes at the Heritage Golf Tournament, our committee members and friends are on their bikes and raising awareness for biking on the island.
