Florence, South Carolina

October 30th, 2012

I got an early start to the day and made my way to Florence, SC to visit the Francis Marion University campus and put some miles on The Kindness Bicycle. This town is challenging for bicyclists with some roads that are shared designation but I deemed it too chancy to ride on. I headed to the campus in The Kindness Bus and tried to find an area with high visibility to park, during which time I had some great conversations with students about One Million Acts Of Kindness. I couldn’t find a spot suitable on campus so I decided to go to a busy area of town to park and found a perfect spot. I rode far less than I wanted to today, but found the busiest spot where The Kindness Bicycle and Bus got the most views.
At day’s end, I met Perry Bell, a local resident. He just couldn’t believe the sight of The Kindness Bus and Bicycle. We talked for a half hour about many great things. It was a great way to end this day.
