Edwin Gardner thought it was cool, fun and efficient to get around Charleston on his bike. Plenty of other Charleston residents feel the same way.

Charleston Moves and several of his friends will celebrate Edwin and the bicycle, his preferred mode of local transportation, at 9am this Saturday, July 27, for the fourth RIDEdwin. All are invited to join the rally/ride which starts and ends at Cannon Park at the corner of Calhoun and Rutledge.

Edwin died three years ago after being struck on his bike by an auto. But RIDEdwin isn't a mournful event. It's a ride to celebrate his life, his impact on our city, and a ride to bring awareness to the need for safe streets for cyclists and pedestrians.

The pre-ride rally will be brief and the short, safe (police-escorted) ride should be fun for everyone, children included.

It is our hope that the RIDEdwin will keep Gardner's vision for a better community alive and galvanize people to pitch in to make it happen.

- When: 9am, July 27
- Where: Starts and ends at Cannon Park, downtown Charleston
