A bicycle city seems like pure utopia to me. The idea of having everything within walking/biking distance and that's within a relatively short distance of a larger city is such an ideal that it seems impossible that it is even close to a realistic possibility. Apparently though, it is becoming a reality for folks in South Carolina in the very near future. Bicycle City, South Carolina is preparing for its launch in early December 2010.
I can only hope that this is the wave of the future, and that cities such as this one will be sprouting up all over the U.S. As much as I'd love to live in this type of place, I'm not quite ready to up and move to South Carolina, but it definitely gives me hope for what the future holds.
