Campbells Covered Bridge Ride and BBQ -  23 and 50 Mile Routes
Labor Day, Mon. Sep. 1, 2014 @ 10:00 AM | North Greenville University Stadium Parking Lot, Tigerville, SC
The Greenville County Recreation Dept has been making improvements at SC's last remaining covered bridge - It's now a nice park.  The Greenville Spinners are teaming up with Furman University student Global Sustainabliity Club, holding this ride as a benefit for the Club's Guatemala Water Project.  A pipeline is being run several miles to a Guatemala village to provide fresh water.  All the ride directors and helpers are volunteer so 100% of the money raised by the ride go directly to the project.  The routes are in the rolling hills of northern Greenville County and stop by Campbells Covered Bridge.  The 23 mile route has one stocked rest stop, the 50 miler has two stops.  Students will run the breaks.  The BBQ lunch is served from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Ride Fee: $25 if you preregister, $30 day of ride. You can register online HERE.  Please visit the ride web page for more info by clicking  HERE
