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.

I am so jealous! Greenville was a great time and I did some great rides. Now days I have to ride across town and climb for 22 miles 2200 to 8000 feet just to find a bakery even close to the nostalgia of Saluda.
