The Greenville County Recreation Dept has been making improvements at SC's last remaining covered bridge - It's now a nice park that is featured on this ride.  The Greenville Spinners are teaming up with David Taylor and the Momentum Bike Club on this ride.  Momentum Bike Club has partnered with several schools in Greenville Co. and provides group cycling mentoring services based on principles of positive youth development to children who may have multiple risk factors.  The Challenge kids in this program have already climbed Paris Mt. Skyuka Mt. and Caesars Head on their bicycles!   The ride routes are in the rolling hills of northern Greenville County and stop by Campbell's Covered Bridge.  The 23 mile route has rest stop, the 50 miler has two rest stops. Momentum Club kids and supervising adults will run the breaks.  The BBQ lunch is served from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Ride Fee: $30 if you preregister, $35 day of ride.

Important Fact:  All the ride directors and helpers are volunteer so 100% of the money raised by the ride goes directly to Momentum Bike Club.

Spinners Present Check to Greenville County Sheriff Department 5-11-15


Ken Drescher presents a $150 check from the Greenville Spinners to Deputy Mike Jenkins.  Mike is one of three deputies that patrol the Swamp Rabbit Trail.  The award to the Greenville Sheriff's Foundation was to show appreciation for officers not only patrolling the SR trail but also leading out many of our rides over the last three years. Often deputy Mike Jenkins would help us when off duty.  A big thanks to the officers who help keep our trail safe and assist with Spinners events.
