Support affordable transportation in Charleston

In Charleston County alone more than 20,000 people live in poverty. For people struggling to support themselves and their families, the cost of owning a car can be prohibitive. Bicycles provide an affordable and efficient option for getting around the Lowcountry. Second Chance Bikes is working to make bicycles accessible for people of all income and ability levels.
