Bicycle City, SC

2 posts in this topic

Have y'all seen or heard about this before? It's called "Bicycle City, SC." This is a project that will create the nation's first car-free city/village. It is apparently already under construction, just south of Columbia near Dixiana at Dixon Road and Pine Plain Rd.

"The planned car-free housing community is slated as the first of its kind in the nation. Construction is expected to begin [in 2011] on a community center that will feature a market, an organic community garden and bed-and-breakfast style rooms for rent. Nine homes are planned in the first phase. The community will be connected with biking and walking trails and will have lake access. Parking for cars will be just outside the main community."

Read more: The State

The inspiration comes from Mackinac Island, Michigan and Freiburg, Germany. Its definitely worth looking up those two towns to see what they are about if you aren't familiar. If this is successful it could become a very cool and attractive place to live/work/play and visit.

Yes, it's posted somewhere in the Columbia forum, however the website is new.
