Our 2022 Advocacy Summary

Bike Walk Greenville has been advocating for safe walking and biking infrastructure since 2013.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, Bike Walk Greenville relies on generous contributions from people like you to continue our work to advocate for a safer community for people on foot and people on bikes.

This year our advocacy has led to a traffic light finally coming to the SRT at West Blue Ridge Drive (SC-253).  SCDOT expects the new signal to be ready in the first quarter of 2023.
Our fundraising led to the first display counter in South Carolina in Greenville in February 2022 with a second display counter coming to the SRT in Travelers Rest in January 2023.
Our advocacy for road diets to slow the motor vehicle traffic and make it safer for people on foot and people on bikes was embraced by the City of Greenville, and by SCDOT where a road diet is now planned for Perry Road in the Sans Souci community.
Our relationship with Ryan Soukup led to his agreement to be the spokesperson for a statewide grass roots effort to repeal the SC ban on traffic cameras issuing traffic tickets.

We strengthened our relationships with elected officials and staff at the City, County, and SCDOT, and have a seat at the table when safe biking and walking infrastructure projects are being discussed.

We partnered with a community effort by facilitating fundraising to make a safer route to walk to Rudolph Gordon School in Fountain Inn.

We donated a trash receptacle at the Lakeview Link to Greenville Rec and a bike repair station to the City of Travelers Rest; both needed amenities for SRT users.

After our strategic planning sessions this year we have new ideas how to grow our advocacy in the coming years.  We look to collaborate with other organizations and do more community outreach.

Your donation can help us do more in 2023!
