Rider Accomodations – Camping, Hotel and RV Options

At Bicycle Across South Carolina, we offer various nightly accommodations for riders – camping, hotels, RVs and more!

With 236 registrations and counting, ranging from South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, AND New York, there have been many questions regarding sleeping arrangements and accommodations.

Learn more about our campsites, RV/Camper options, “Car Camping”, and hotel partners below!

Camping

A camp site is included with all rider’s registration fee. Once riders arrive on-site to check-in, they will get to choose their camp site! We have plenty of space available so all riders are guaranteed a designated spot – just make sure you select “camping” when registering. We do not provide camping equipment but are happy to make suggestions on what to bring!

Places for hammocks are available but are limited! All campsites will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis.

RVs/Campers

At the moment we are SOLD OUT of RV/Camper parking. If you haven’t signed up yet or didn’t select “RV/Camper” when registering, no worries we’ve got some nearby campgrounds that will be able to accommodate your vehicle. If you have signed up for a RV/Camper spot, please note that there will be no hookups, power, or dump stations available – boondock style only! We will have restrooms and showers available for your use.

Car Camping

Our new Basecamp allows for ample parking and campsites! All cars, RVs, and campers will be parked in the Upper Lot. Campsites, meals, nightly activities, music, campsite, etc. will all take place a short walk away in the Lower Lot.

Want to turn your car into a comfy bed or have a tent to pitch in your truck bed? You’re welcome to “car camp” as long as you don’t take up any more space that your vehicle size. Vehicles will be parked in rows so we do not have room for tents next to cars. You’re also welcome to go back and forth between car camping and tent camping if you’d like or if there’s inclement weather.

Hotels

Last but not least, those looking for luxuary! Hotel options are available but are not included in your registration so there will be additional fees. You can book directly through your preferred hotel. Due to our new format, riders will always have access to their car and can stay at whatever hotel they’d like as long as they can provide their own transportation to/from the basecamp where the ride will start/end each day. We do have a hotel block at Fairfield Inn and Suites Greenwood – book here

Top 5 Reasons to Sign Up for BASC

Early Bird Registration for the 3rd annual Bicycle Across South Carolina opens this Friday at 12 PM EST! Thinking about joining the adventure? Here are our top 5 reasons to sign up for BASC!

1. A Unique Multi-day Gravel Ride

The ride (not race) is a multi-day gravel ride that highlights the beauty and vast landscapes of South Carolina. With 80% gravel and 20% pavement, the routes offer a challenging yet accessible adventure for all. Each day riders begin and end at our BASC Basecamp, a centralized point that will serve as our home base throughout the weekend. No packing up camp each night, shuttles, or wondering where you’re crashing for the night! All activities, meals, entertainment, etc. will take place at the BASC Basecamp. After the ride, return to your already set up campsite, relax, and get ready for the next day of riding. 

A short route and long route will be available each day. The exact routes and venues will be announced on May 14. 

2. Get Off The Grid and Explore

At the center of it all, is the adventure. Riders young and old are drawn to this ride to experience the unique routes, rustic campsites, and off-the-grid lifestyle. Each day riders will experience new trails with quintessential South Carolina landscapes and challenging distances that push riders to conquer each day. Afterward, reward yourself with a cold beer and a hot meal while you recap the day with a group of like-minded enthusiasts. 

No matter what we encounter, it’s all a part of the adventure so expect the unexpected and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!

3. Join a Tight-Knit Community

Each year, new and returning riders conquer the ride and bond over a beer after the excitement and adrenaline rush dies down after the ride. This tight-knit community is like no other and welcomes riders of all experience levels. Since this is a ride, not a race, the competitive nature of a road race isn’t evident. Riders are encouraged to take in the views and experience the outdoors from a whole new perspective. 

Never rode in an organized ride before? We welcome cyclists of any experience level as long as they can handle the mileage and support themselves along the route. 

4. An Unforgettable Experience

It’s more than just a ride! We provide a turn-key experience for our riders by cultivating an unforgettable adventure complete with various routes, local food and beverages, live music, and more – all included with the registration price. The combination of unique gravel trails, a tight-knit community, and the adventure of a lifetime all help shape this event into a truly unforgettable experience. 

5. The Dream Team

Our team here at The Post and Courier has partnered with experts in the cycling industry, Medalist Sports to create our BASC Dream Team! Together we have shaped this event over the past two years into an event we believe in and are proud to be a part of.

There you have it- these are our top 5 reasons to sign up for BASC this year! Still have questions? Shoot us an email here!
