Join us for our annual celebration of complete streets!

Each May, Charleston Moves hosts a series of events aimed at bringing the community together to elevate multi-modal accomplishments, provide updates on our priority projects, and offer calls to action, as well as volunteer opportunities, to advance our people-powered movement.

Due to COVID, we will be hosting this year’s events both virtually and on-your-own-time. They will be an engaging mix of independent rides to celebrate the recent installation of precedent-setting infrastructure, as well as interactive presentations around targeted advocacy efforts with local and national experts. See below for details to participate!
