South Carolina should be a cycling paradise, but it’s not, at least not yet. Great weather, beautiful scenery from Greenville to Columbia to Charleston, it still lags behind the rest of the country in bicycle safety. It’s getting better because of new cycling laws, increasing numbers of riders, progressive city planning, and a committed advocacy community.
Randonneuring is long-distance, unsupported, endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring. Click here for more information.
The Bike Helmet Safety Institute is the helmet advocacy program of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association. We are a small, active, non-profit consumer-funded program providing bicycle helmet information. We try to explain the technology of helmets to consumers, and promote better helmets through improved standards. http://www.bhsi.org/index.htm
There are a lot of things to be said about the greenville area, but many people are not aware that there are also a lot of mountain bike trails.
Greenville is actually very close to a lot of mountains, but does not have the reputation of a mountain biking area.. why is this… We, as a club are trying to promote this, and with time, we hope that this page will become a resource for the area with a lot of information to trails, places to go and places to see.
