Locals and visitors to Hilton Head Island and Bluffton are lucky to be able to bike pretty much anywhere. With almost 100 miles of paths (and growing) on the Island and miles in downtown Bluffton, it’s easy to access the top restaurants, activities and festivals via bike anywhere in the Lowcountry.
So it’s no surprise the Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce spawned a brilliant idea of a “Bike & Dine” week, now in it’s third year and presented by Coligny Plaza. Blending family friendly bike-riding with excellent culinary offerings at local Lowcountry restaurants and getting people out in the fresh air! Starting May 2nd and running through May 9th of 2015 – a wide array of offerings from local restaurants can be found on the Chamber of Commerce’s Bike and Dine website.
Bike and Dine week is simple, just ride to your favorite location and tell your server you are there for the “Bike and Dine” discount. When you are finished with your meal, stop by Coligny Plaza and take a photo next to a truly unique bike rack on Hilton Head Island!!!
Yep, that’s an alligator bike rack! Post your photo to the @VisitHiltonHead facebook page with hashtags #chamberbikeanddine and #coligny!
