Local Folks, Moving Spokes is a collaborative event series presented by Lowcountry Local First and Charleston Moves. Our event on October 4 is geared toward the importance of local civic action. By thoughtfully electing our leaders, we can realize a Charleston that aligns with our vision to support local business and actualize equitable transportation for our region. We aim to make this event (as part of a quarterly series) topical and engaging, bringing you a fresh and unique look at those who are reimagining and energizing our political landscape and the discussions surrounding it.
This event will be an intimate conversation between Toby Smith, candidate for the 2016 mayoral race, and Marvin R. Pendarvis, Democratic primary winner for State House of Representatives, District 113. Grab your bike and meet us at the St. Julian Devine Center for the discussion. Following, we'll pedal over to the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art for a social hour, one-on-one Q&A with our speakers and a final look at the Institute's current exhibit, which closes October 7.
The event has a limited capacity and your ticket includes wine at The Halsey. Additional bike parking will be provided at both locations. If you'd like to ride Holy Spokes Charleston Bike Share, there is a station conveniently located a couple blocks from St. Julian Devine at Hampstead Square (corner of America and Columbus).

Discussion with Speakers: 6 — 6:30pm
Bike Ride from St. Julian Devine to The Halsey: 6:45 — 7:15pm

The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to team up with Charleston Moves, Lunch and Recess, D'Allesandro's Pizza & New Belgium Brewing to present a night of Bicycle Films in downtown Charleston, SC on Saturday, October 7th at 7PM. We hope to make this an annual event, as we partner up with the New York Bicycle Film Festival (now in its 17th year). The New York Bicycle Film Fest built the film lineup for us and helped with the organization of our event. We are proud to be coordinating with a wonderful festival in a great city, as we seek to make larger connections with people on bikes, activists and arts organizations throughout the country. We are also jazzed to be officially screening Backpedal: an hour long film created by Charleston’s own, Ryan Cockrell, that explores the difficulties and dangers of mobility in Charleston, SC.
• 5:30pm | Meet at Recovery Room for a decorated bike brigade to the Charleston Music Hall (basic decorations will be on hand, but we encourage you to step it up!)
• 6pm | Doors open
• 7pm | Films start (run for approximately 2.5 hours)
• 9:30pm | Afterparty (location will be announced on stage)
Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Charleston Moves, a nonprofit organization advocating for enhanced conditions for walking and riding a bike in Charleston County. Prizes will be given out for best-decorated bike, and New Belgium will also raffle off a bicycle with proceeds benefiting Charleston Moves.
