    Traveling to Hilton Head

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    DH and I are headed to HHI for a week's vacation and are bringing the bikes. DH is training for IM Florida and hoped to get a couple long rides in but the distance is so limited on the Island. We would like to get a ride in elsewhere but have no idea where to go. Could any of you ladies that live in the vicinity please give me some good routes on the other side of the bridge? or a good group ride suggestion? We would appreciate it so much.

    It is limited. But Road Fish bike shop conducts a couple of rides on Tuesdays and Thursdays on HH. You'd have to call them. And DG and his wife Henri Anne conduct a long Saturday ride from Beaufort. Some Sundays too, depending. (Actually, I think DG owns Road Fish? Can't remember).

    How far from Hilton Head did you have in mind?

    For the rest, PM sent.

    Thanks so much. We are looking for 25-50 mile rides and then DH has a 4.5 hour ride to get in while we are there. God only knows how many miles that will be...probably close to a century. I've been training for the Chicago marathon so I haven't been on the bike a lot the last month. I don't think I'll do that one with him but who knows

    We will check in at the bike shop when we get there.

    You're a gem. Thanks again.

    Yeah, do the bike shop ride. You can dig up the thread that I wrote about riding in HH.
    I almost ended up in jail.
    HH is for golfers and maybe tennis players.

    Ah yes - this thread. I remember reading it when we had a wedding to attend in Hilton Head. We chose not to bring our bikes because of the issues, and have removed it from our vacation spot list. It certainly didn't seem bike friendly.

    HH is a bizarre place I avoid.

    If it were me, I'd switch my visits to Charleston. Tons of bike rides. Great scenery. Much more to do.

    Or even better: Greenville. But that's inland. If you want beaches, go to Charleston.

    This is why I'm driving to Charlotte next week to buy a bike. Most of the time, I ride on the military bases. No one hassles me there.

    I should save the money on a new bike, since that will allow me to move away from this place that much sooner. But I just refinanced my house, and my payment decreased by 315 per month. So I'll finally be able to save some money. I feel guilty, but do believe a can afford this bike.
