Bicycle City is a proposed car-free development for cyclists in South Carolina. Headed by Joe Mellett, an internet marketer and bike enthusiast from Cincinnati, the Bicycle City project aims to build an eco-friendly community in the Columbia suburbs that would allow residents to get around by using bikes or by foot, instead of cars. The concept is modeled in large part after the Swiss municipality of Zermatt, a tourist town at the foot of the Matterhorn that banned combustion-engine vehicles in the 1960s to preserve its air quality. Unlike Zermatt, where electric cars are the norm, all transportation in Bicycle City will be by bike or foot, a first in the US.
