Major Golf Tournament Hoping Attendees Will Arrive On Bikes



Organizers of the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina hope more people will ride their bikes to the tournament this year. They're setting aside parking for at least 1,000 (!) bikes on the tennis courts in an effort to ease parking congestion getting into and out of the course. Last year about 300 cyclists used the parking. Organizers hope that number will increase to 500 this year."

I can't imagine that you plan to attend, but if you do, or are just really interested in the setup, here's more info.

That would be really cool if it is. Especially if celebrities do it. Because everything celebrities do is cool right? That's meant sarcastically of course.
