Also Coming Up.......riding, not walking.
On Thurs, May 7, take a bike ride along the Swamp Rabbit Trail from Traveler's Rest to Greenville in S. Carolina. This is a an old railroad line, so it's a fairly flat ride through the woods and into the city.
This annual adventure will be at a leisurely pace, and will take about 4 hours.
Bike rentals are available at the start point: Sunrift Adventures in Traveler's Rest. Meet there at 9:30
Please let Perry Rawson know if you're planning to attend: email@example.com / 828-698-6760
