As with all Cycle to Farm events, the first in the Greenville area will provide participants with a tour of local farms by bicycle, stunning scenery of this beautiful area, tasty food samples crafted by the farms, and products for sale at every farm (including at the Finish, Greenbrier Farm). And of course, the Fabulous After Party. Specifically:
In addition to the great Farm Stops, we’re going to take care of you, so you can challenge your abilities and stay safe.
This is what you can expect:
Free coffee and snack at the Start
Bike mechanic support at the Start
SAG (Support and Gear) Vehicles on course (to help you out, and give you a ride back if necessary)
Fire/EMS personnel on the course (motorcycles, vehicles)
Event Ambassadors, riding with you to offer help and keep you on course
And if all else fails, you'll be provided a detailed cue sheet of the route as well
