This year the Greenville Spinners are supporting the races in several BIG ways.
(The Official Hagood Ride is Cancelled this Month Only)
We are supporting the USA pro race event this weekend – April 16th and 17th with a rides from downtown Greenville with additional start at SCTAC on Saturday and rides from the Zoo on Sunday.
On Saturday, April 16th
Spinners will have a group ride from downtown Greenville (meet at Sulley Steamers at Main and Washington) or start at SCTAC. We will go to the Connector and folks that want to stay to watch the time trials can cut off there, watch the time trials and ride back. The route will also continue to go on to the Happy Cow Creamery with a loop back to the same place at the connector and then head back to SCTAC and into town.
Total Distances – 53 miles from downtown, 22 miles from SCTAC to start of Time Trial, only 10 miles if you stop to watch at the Connector. See Routes Below. No support, no SAG.
Start Times: 8:45 AM at Sulley Steamers, 10:00AM at SCTAC in rectangle parking lot. Meet at the Spinners Sign.
Route from downtown to SCTAC, with time trial connector location to watch trials, and onto Happy Cow.

On Sunday, April 17th:
The Spinners will have a tent at the Crit race at East North and Main. There will be two rides from the Zoo, one at 11:30 and one at 2:00 to end up downtown to watch the races. For people that ride from the Zoo we will also have drinks and snacks atop the One Building at Bergamo Plaza and people will be able to go to the roof top enjoy a snack and watch the races there as well. You have to be on the ride to do go in the One building and must have cycling cleats covered.
