Attention Charleston cyclists, history buffs or anyone looking for an exciting way to view our fair city: the Preservation Society is hosting a first-ever cycling tour of the Holy City's waterfront and maritime history.

The preservation pedal will take place on Saturday, September 8, and is known as "Watch Day."

So, how do you get on board? All you have to do is pedal over to White Point Gardens (aka The Battery) at 8:30 a.m. and register for the tour. Tickets are $15 per person and include the tour plus breakfast at the Immigration Station and the mobile application of Charleston’s Maritime Sites.

Here's more on the morning's events from the Preservation Society:

As a group we will pedal along historic wharves, past monumental maritime buildings and significant private homes. We will also celebrate the centennial of a very inspiring gateway into Charleston, with the Pedal event concluding at the Immigration Station, built in 1912. At the conclusion of the Pedal, we'll gather for a late breakfast on the deck to re-fuel and take in gorgeous views of the harbor and bridge. The launch of our new Historic Waterfront Mobile App will be released on ‘Watch Day.’

Advanced tickets may be purchased online.
