Anyone have a smart trainer they want to sell off? A handcycle friend of mine can't afford one and I want to buy him one for his birthday. Wheel on or wheel off will be fine.
Just curious, this is the base of Altamonte road heading up to Paris Mountain. Does anyone know what this old foundation used to be?

SRT Closed: Green Line between Hwy 253/ W Blue Ridge & Sulphur Springs now closed until 4 today.
My brother and I are looking to ride today from REI to Donaldson, around the loop, and back. Never rode out there before. Got any tips? I was hoping to park closer towards Mauldin Road so we could finish with the big down hill from REI, but I don't know where to park.
Anyone know anything about Stuart Ledford who was found dead on the side of the road at Donaldson yesterday? Collision? Medical event?
Firefighters and Police and Corrections and EMS need outreach. Great door of opportunity. Especially with 9 11 coming up.
If you're planning to climb the Saluda Watershed this weekend, there's a new restaurant with great eats. Check it out. Same side as the bakery. The Blue Squirrel Cafe
Hi. I am visiting Greenville and I've been riding for a couple of weeks. Love it here. The community is amazing and people are so friendly. Coming from Fort Lauderdale this place is refreshing! I want to take my partner to a couple of rides. Where is a good place to rent a good road bike here in Greenville. Thank you.

Spinners Members,

The Safety Foundation Challenge has been met! Because of your generosity, over 180 youths in the upstate will have access to a bike helmet for safer riding. Additional donations to the safety foundation are always welcomed at any time.

https://www.spinnerssafety.org/support-us

Thank you all
Greenville Spinners

[02/17/21]   Dear Greenville Spinners members,
As board members of the Greenville Spinners Bicycle Club and Greenville Spinners Safety Foundation, we want to sincerely thank all of you who responded to our 2020 fundraising mail campaign. The ongoing health situation prevented us from having our annual call-a-thon the first Monday after Thanksgiving, which is our tradition. We had a successful 2020 donation campaign though our totals were a tad below previous years, understandably.
We are reaching out to you now because a gracious Spinners member has offered a special challenge in order to benefit the Greenville Spinners Bicycle Safety Foundation. This member is willing to match all donations made to the Safety Foundation up to $1000. So we have a $2000 potential benefit to further the mission of the Safety Foundation and support this sport we all love.
If we achieve our fundraising goal of $2000, this would equate to 166 helmets we can provide to the vulnerable children in our community. The Greenville Spinners Bicycle Club Board has decided to seed the matching campaign with a $100 donation. We only have $900 to go!
The club would also like to use this opportunity to highlight several SAFETY accomplishments through their support of advocacy organizations like the Palmetto Cycling Coalition (PCC) and Bike Walk Greenville. The PCC recently announced SCDOT’s adoption of a Complete Streets Policy, which prioritizes non-motorized road users in planning and development. The PCC is also currently working to pass a "3-foot passing" rule for cyclists and a "hands free" distracted driving bill in the General Assembly. The Spinners are involved in these efforts and we encourage you to support them as well by contacting your elected officials.
So if you missed out on our 2020 fundraising mailing, and/or would like to get a head start on 2021, all donations received from 2/15/21 through 3/14/21 will count toward this challenge.
Please visit our new website where you can donate:

DONATE NOW
If you prefer, you can also mail your donation to:
Greenville Spinners Safety Foundation
P.O. Box 31268
Greenville, South Carolina 29608
Please write “2021 challenge” on your check. Shortly, we will also be able to accept stock/mutual fund donations. Donations are tax deductible as the Safety Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.
We are so grateful for this challenge and for all the support we have received these last 27+ years. Here is hoping 2021 will bring some normalcy where we can once again gather as a club to ride these great roads in the upstate of South Carolina.
Sincerely,
Greenville Spinners Bicycle Club
Greenville Spinners Bicycle Safety Foundation

Group Ride Jan 30th 10AM roll time from Polk County Middle School and Recreation Complex. We will flip a coin to see if we ride Holbert's Cove or Green River Cove. Intermediate/Advanced only.
Please do NOT ride on Hwy 108!
