Trip Report Cycling in Greenville SC

Jump to last reply

When most people think of SC they think of Charleston or the beaches. I actually live closer to the mountains. This Easter my husband and I decided to take a quick over night trip to Greenville and act like tourists.

If you have never been to Greenville before, it is worth a visit. The Reedy River cuts directly through the city. It has a magnificent 80 foot waterfall and miles of rapids. Main Street is about 100 yards from the falls and is linked to the water by a pedestrian suspension bridge.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn which is river view. Thank goodness for Hilton Honors. We paid $150 and were upgraded to a riverfront room with a balcony. After walking around downtown (among the boutiques and art galleries) we selected Soby’s for supper. I highly recommend their shrimp and grits.

The next morning we set off on our bikes. Greenville has a 20 mile bike path that closely parallels the river. We took the easy route – two miles downstream. We pedaled through the River Park, through a residential area and on to Cleveland Park. (Of course that meant our return trip was mostly uphill. We made it back to eat at Mellow Mushroom for lunch.

We had a blast. We hope to go back at tackle the upstream portion of the trail later in the summer.
