I'd extend that to all of coastal SC. I'm temporarily in Myrtle Beach and this is the least bike-friendly environment I've been in for a long time. 17 Business and Ocean Bl. are OK but the rest of it is a disaster. I can't wait to go home to southwest VA.
It's a shame because so many people could benefit so much from being able to ride here -- especially all the low income service workers who can't afford to keep a car on the road, but do anyway. And none of the current road widening plans call for shoulders, let alone bike lanes. I can't believe they just widened 544 without bike lanes, right by the university.
There's no enforcement either, to keep coke-addled truckers from driving their 18 wheelers at 60 in 40 zones, on shoulderless 2-lane arterials -- or to catch drunks, who are everywhere, thanks to all-night bars.
I see lots
of po' folk on bikes, usually riding at walking pace, against traffic, on the grass beside the road.
