ROUTES

THE GROUP RIDE

Our Group Ride is a challenging 3-day cross-state ride for avid road cyclists, and it's truly "A Ride to Remember." Participants may register for 1, 2, or all 3 days for one flat registration fee.

  • Day 1 begins in Simpsonville, SC, just south of the up-and-coming foodie and cultural destination of Greenville, SC. Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m., with the ride start at 8:30 a.m. Over 64.6 miles, riders will make their way through hilly, green country roads to the campus of Newberry College in quaint downtown Newberry. 
  • Day 2 departs Newberry College at 7:00 a.m. for arguably the most challenging day of the route. Riders will meander 87.8 miles through small Midlands towns in bustling Orangeburg, but don't be fooled - it's not all downhill! 
  • Day 3 departs Orangeburg at 7:00 a.m. to take riders 102.8 miles over mostly flat rural highways into the famous historic center of Charleston, "The Holy City," where the route finishes over the Charleston Harbor via the striking Ravenel Bridge.
