Tuesday SCTAC rides are moving .... 

Starting on September 16th, all rides will  start from the Greenville Spinners Bicycle Club’s new SCTAC parking area (more information on the document to the left)
Did you know?
There is no public property at  SCTAC… For many years, we cyclists have been  trespassing by parking at SCTAC. The property holders have expressed concern about this  trespassing and their own liability. So, in an effort to be respectful neighbors and good members of the community, the Spinners board of directors has been working with SCTAC on a solution.
The result:
we have arranged to lease a parking area. This new parking area is on Perimeter Road across from the military reserve center. There is some 
paved parking and some grass parking.The Spinners are paying rent for this property, and we request that everyone who parks there be a 
Spinners club member. This will help cover the rent  and will reduce liability. The porta-johns will be moved to our new property, and a sign will be posted designating the area as belonging to the Greenville Spinners.

Thanks to the 170 riders who particiapted on this Labor Day ride.

Campbell's Covered Bridge Ride - Ride Report
Labor Day, Mon. Sep. 1, 2014 @ 10:00 AM | North Greenville University Stadium Parking Lot, Tigerville, SC
The Spinners teamed up with Furman's Global Sustainability Club to aid their water project in Guatemala. Approx. 170 riders rode 23 and 50 mile routes.  The ride raised just under $3,000 for the water project.  All volunteers and directors volunteered their time so 100% of the money goes directly to the people of Guatemala. 

The Greenville County Sheriffs dept. provided two officers to lead out the riders.  

The weather was partly cloudy and humid with temps. reaching in the low 90's.

Ride Directors:  Ken Drescher and Steve Yetman

To all Spinners and SCTAC riders... 


The paving will be on 4.2 miles of the total 7.2 miles. The remaining last 3 miles owned by SCDOT has not yet been scheduled.  Racing and riding on Perimeter Road will be SUSPENDED until further notice from the Greenville Spinners board. This will be in effect for at least the next three months. The country C rides will continue as planned.  Be happy because after its completion,  we will have a WIDER, SAFER AND SMOOTHER RIDE THAN EVER BEFORE!

Is your ride getting a little boring? Dare to try something different? The answer is the Swamp Rabbit Trail Night Ride! We gather in Greenville's Cleveland Park near the zoo entrance and take off into the night at 7:30 PM each Sunday evening, weather permitting. We ride about 12 miles to Travelers Rest which is our turnaround point then return to the zoo. We often make a diversion around the Furman Lake to view the lit bell tower.

Helmets and lights required to ride.  Weekly Email confirming ride is on is sent to all Spinners members.
