CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — While Charleston is touted as the best city on the planet by Conde Nast and Travel and Leisure, it has been ranked one of the worst cities for cycling. In fact, Bicycle Magazine places Charleston in their hall of shame.

With automotive traffic becoming a bigger problem by the day and virtually no other form of transportation, there has been a steady increase in people who are pedaling or walking to work and school.

Katie Zimmerman is the future executive Director of Charleston Moves, a non profit organization which advocates for better conditions for those who bike or walk in Charleston County. Their hope is for a safer, more connected environment.
