Expect traffic delays on Hilton Head Island on Sunday. Here’s where and why

More than 700 cyclists will cruise through roads and pathways for the 17th annual Pedal Hilton Head Island, which is expected to slow traffic Sunday.

Beginning at 7:30 a.m., the first wave of cyclists will depart from Lowcountry Celebration Park at 94 Pope Ave. The last group will leave at 9:30 a.m. The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office urged drivers to take extra caution and stay aware of cyclists on the road.

Throughout the morning, cyclists will be on the following roads:

  • Pope Avenue and Palmetto Bay roads

  • Cross Island Parkway and 278 to/from mainland

  • Marshland Road and Town pathways

  • Gardner and Leg O Mutton roads

  • Beach City Road

  • Dillon and Union Cemetery roads

  • Fish Haul Road

Pedal Hilton Head Island is a charity ride that benefits The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island. The club typically serves 325 children daily, with about two-thirds living under the federal poverty line.
