Letter: Support the Bicycle Route Petition

 

The Editor:

In "A Bike Path on Broad Street," the Chronicle Editorial Team hit the nail on the head, noting numerous reasons why cycling lanes were the "linchpin" for a revitalized Broad Street. 

When I was a Furman student back in the late 1980's, there was a small, forgettable town just north of campus, which students never visited. To students like me, Traveler's Rest felt obsolete, run-down, forgotten. 

Never would I have guessed that tiny Travelers Rest would blossom into a thriving, young, family-friendly destination with trendy coffee shops, bars, restaurants and outdoor outfitters. Really? Travelers Rest???

Yet that is what happened, and it was all made possible by a bike path that has generated wealth and prosperity in every community it has touched. What better way to lobby for a Swamp-Rabbit extension through Laurens County than to put bike lanes on Clinton's main artery?

With this hope in mind, I am circulating a petition that will be delivered to City Council during their September 3rd meeting. If you would like to support this initiative and sign the petition, email Justin at jbrent68@gmail.com
