2018 Ride Information
The event is Saturday, November 10, 2018, and the riders will roll out at 9 am from the Belton First Baptist Church at 105 Brown Avenue in Belton, SC. The ride route is well marked and fully supported with attended rest stops (restrooms & food); SAG teams (support and gear) to help with flat tires and other potential equipment issues; and roving EMS with a central dispatch. We will also have law enforcement assistance at busy intersections on the route. All riders will be served lunch at the finish. All riders receive an event tee shirt and other goodies. The entry fee is $40.
There are three routes from which riders can choose: the 62-miler, the 35-miler, and the 10-miler. The event is not a race, but more of a “tour” where folks will be riding at whatever pace they prefer just to enjoy the experience of a beautiful country ride. That said, there will always be folks who show up for a good workout who will ride hard at the front as if it were a race. The main route, at 62 miles, is known by experienced cyclists as a metric century. Some folks will finish that in under 3 hours. Some will take 5 hours or more to finish. The 10-mile route is an easier ride for less-experienced riders and children. The routes were designed by an accomplished cyclist with a goal to provide suitable rides to anyone who can ride a bicycle.
This will be our fifth annual bicycle tour. We expect to attract 150 or more riders this year.
