The Experience

The GROUP RIDE Experience

Are you ready for the best-supported cross-state cycling event in South Carolina? During our 3-day Group Ride, we've got you covered with rest stops every 10-15 miles with water, Gatorade, and snacks. In addition, SAG vehicles will be in operation for the duration of the ride, including medical support, mechanical support, and a sweeper that will never pass the final rider. For safety, we provide a police escort in the highest traffic areas entering Charleston.

The Group Ride is a road cycling event along South Carolina roadways. The 3-day cross-state route is intended for avid road cyclists. It can be an intense challenge due to back-to-back days in the saddle, and adequate training is a must! While we welcome riders of all levels, less experienced cyclists are encouraged to consider just one day of the route or to opt for our month-long Virtual Challenge.

Lunch and celebratory beverages are provided at the finish line each day. We also provide dinner each evening, as well as luggage transport for each day. Lodging is the responsibility of each rider, but discounted lodging rates will be available. Think of it as a scenic road trip with lots of new friends. Register today to enjoy fantastic camaraderie while advancing the fight to #ENDALZ!

All participants are invited to join us for a virtual opening and closing ceremony as we kick off and wrap up Ride to End ALZ South Carolina! Details TBA.
