Just wanted to tell you that as a non biker while my husband enjoyed the rides …i just really just enjoy being around your kind and caring family …you are such good people and it is a joy to be able to spend a some time with you.”
Our USA Cycling sanctioned and fun event has the same leadership and volunteers as it did 17 years ago! This year we will ride and lodge in scenic Santee, South Carolina. Santee is known for gold and scenic southern views and you’ll enjoy them on the mostly flat rides with distances between 20 and 110 miles of rural routes, cotton fields and friendly small towns. Our festive bike ride really has something for everyone — beginning riders, family groups, to the racers.
The Whitten Inn in Santee, SC is the hub of our event. Rides begin and end at the hotel. Breakfast is served at the hotel. Same with packet pickup and evening activities. The hotel has a discount rate for us too. Find out more at the lodging page.
FestiVELO puts as much planning into the riding as we do into socializing each and every night. You’ll meet new friends around the campfire or chatting at one of our themed dinner nights or Walk Down Memory Lane watching Ed Sullivan shows under the stars.
Dates for FestiVELO 2014 are Veterans Day weekend Wednesday, November 5 to Monday, November 10. Ride on November 6, 7, 8 & 9 and there will be a free ride on Monday the 10th to honor the veterans. Please mark your calendars.
