May is National Bike Month, and the week of 13-17 May is Bike to Work Week. If you have been toying with the idea of bike commuting, why not give it a try this week? On Friday the 17th, riders will be meeting at the State House steps at 8:00AM for a ride down Main St. to Mast General Store to show their support for bike commuting in Columbia. There will also be several other bike-related events, sponsored by the Columbia Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, taking place throughout the month. Visit the website of the Palmetto Cycling Coalition to learn more about these events. In the meantime, check out some of the Richland Library's books on bicycling to learn more about biking safely, maintaining your bike, and much more.

Railroads have been a presence in Columbia for more than a hundred and fifty years. All around town, you are bound to run into signs of their activity past and present, from the former Union Station (now California Dreamin’ restaurant) and Seaboard Air Line Station (now the Blue Marlin), to Norfolk Southern’s Andrews Yard near Williams Brice Stadium and CSX’s yard across the river in Cayce.
