Biking in Greenwood

I can't believe I haven't already blogged about how great the bike community in Greenwood is. Alan is a regular on the Tuesday night ride in the woods at Parson's Mountain, and we have already enjoyed several Saturday "Fountain" rides this year. Those meet at the fountain in Uptown Greenwood on Saturdays at 10, or after time changes Sunday, at 9. Depending on the weather, who is there and how long folks want to ride, it is usually one or two groups, 20-40 miles. We've been on a 40+ mile adventure to the border with both McCormick and Abbeville counties. Plus some 30+ mile adventures around Ninety Six, including a pitstop at the National Historic Site. There are Sunday afternoon rides too, usually at 2 or 3 from the adorable gazebo in Hodges. Looking forward to catching one of those rides, but my captain is usually riding in the woods on Sunday afternoons if the weather permits.

Word is the new county master plan "encourages bike and pedestrian traffic." We'll see what that means, if anything.
