The bakery ride

Here is the first of several rides that I hope to publish in a special list that will appear in the right column of my blog. This seems like a great one to start with since it is a favorite ride for most cyclists in the Upstate. If you haven’t tried it, get a group together (it is always more fun together) and head up some Saturday morning.
The blue line shows the route from North Greenville University to Saluda. Click here to expand the map. Once you have expanded the map, click on it to be able to view more detail.

There are several places from which folks start the route, but I’ve always started from North Greenville University. Some park on campus and other park along the side of North Tigerville Road. Sometime this year, I plan to make the trip from Greenville. I suggest you start with this route first.

About Jonathan Pait

Jonathan started riding mountain bikes in the early 1990s. After discovering the ride can start at the end of his driveway, he moved to the road in 2006. Little did he know that first pedal stroke would lead him on an adventure that has become much larger than the bicycle.
