SPINNERS FIRST FIFTY RIDE - 10th Anniversary
Sat. Jan 3rd 2015 at 10:00AM | Furman University | Approx. 55 miles
 
Enjoy a scenic first ride of the new year with your Spinner friends.  This ride starts at Furman University and heads out toward Dacusville before heading to the turnaround and rest stop near Table Rock Mt.  The route is typical northern Greenville County rolling hills with outstanding river and mtn. views.  Andre and Lynn always have a fabulous break that includes special homemade treats.  For more ride details including images, route. and Garmin GPS downloads click the link below.  We will have a roving SAG for this ride.  The Great Escape will be providing pre-ride mechanical support.
 
This ride is FREE for all current Spinners members.  Not a Spinner member?  No problem, but we ask you to donate $10 to the Spinners Safety Foundation that puts free helmets on kids heads and provides them with bike safety information. None of the helpers or ride directors are compensated so 100% of the ride proceeds go to the Foundation.  All good stuff for our community!

Guys racing 

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.

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.

To all Spinners and SCTAC riders... 

MAJOR REPAVING STARTS ON PERIMETER ROAD ON OR BEFORE JULY 27.  IT WILL TAKE 3 MONTHS TO COMPLETE. IF IT RAINS AT ALL, IT WILL TAKE LONGER. 

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!

Weekly Sunday Afternoon Swamp Rabbit Trail Rides

Every Sunday 2:00 PM | Cleveland Park (near the zoo entrance)

Join us for an ongoing Sunday Swamp Rabbit trail ride. We leave the park at 2:00 PM and ride on the Swamp Rabbit Trail up to Travelers Rest to the Forest Coffee Shop. Then we pedal back to the park. It is about 12 miles to TR and 12 miles back. Occasinally we ride to the very end of the trail and take a loop over Tubbs Mtn. and back to Travelers Rest - but this is optional. This is a fun ride where speed is not a factor. You simply ride at your own pace. This is an all inclusive ride - everyone is welcome! Helmets are required. Click here for more info. View video about the Swamp Rabbit. 




We now have Public Service Announcements about the Swamp Rabbit trail. Click here to see one about the rules of the road, on our Swamp Rabbit Trail
