Routes: Participants can expect 3 days of moderately challenging terrain.  The dirt/gravel roads are well maintained by the US Forest Service.  Each day will bring hills, gravel, and paved roads.  You should expect a ratio of 50% paved and 50% gravel roads each day.   The ride is set up for mountain, cross, gravel, and crossover bikes with wider, knobby tires. Road bikes are not recommended.

  • Long Route: 50-60 miles per day
  • Short Route: 20-30 miles per day

Ride Format: Each day, the ride will start and end at our BASC Basecamp (*location TBD). 3-Day, 2-Day, and 1-Day ride options are available.

Rest Stops: Rest stops will be placed along each bike course; you can expect at least 3 rest stops each day for the long course and at least 1 rest stop for the short course. Locations will be stocked with water and an electrolyte-type drink. Along with appropriate cycling snacks.   If you require specific food or beverage, please plan on bringing along your ride!

Best Bike Options: Given the terrain type and BASC being a gravel ride experience; mountain, gravel, and cyclocross bicycles are strongly recommended. Bicycles that have wider, knobby-type tires will roll over the gravel/dirt roads with greater ease.

  • E-Bikes are welcome – please follow the recommendations above regarding bike types.
  • Please do not plan on riding a triathlon, beach cruiser, road, or any bicycle with skinny tires and no tread.  We also do not recommend single-speed bicycles, but rather bikes with gears.
  • Helmets are required.

Mechanical Support: While we will have support vehicles on each bike route, that can assist in changing a flat or perhaps a minor mechanical issue, it is strongly suggested you bring the necessary tubes, tools, and supplies you need for your specific bike type.  The event may not have the items you require at the time to service your bike.

Children: These routes are not recommended for children 14 and under. If you are unsure whether these routes are right for your child, please email us at BASC@postandcourier.com. Anyone 17 and under can register as a "Child Rider".

Refund Policy: We do not offer refunds. If a registrant is unable to attend Bicycle Across South Carolina for any reason, they will be able to transfer their registration to another rider or carry over to 2023 NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 1, 2022. Please email BASC@postandcourier.com before September 1, 2022 to transfer. There will be a transfer fee of $50.
