PLANTERSVILLE, South Carolina – The 4th Annual Tour de Plantersville registration is now open www.tourdeplantersville.com offering a Metric Century ride (62 miles) 12- and 25-mile bicycle excursions down the Plantersville scenic Byway, capturing its rich rice farming history and explores various Colonial-era landmarks. Registration increases on July 29th – register now to secure your spot. The first 250 riders to register receive a wicked t-shirt. Each registered rider receives a coupon for lunch at one of our vendors.
There are planned rest stops along the route and each historical site visited will have volunteer docents to introduce riders to the history of the property. Tour organizers have secured new places of interest to stop at and are finalizing others. Check our website for updates and details.
Don’t have a bicycle or can’t transport it – not a problem! You can rent a bicycle from Cyclopedia for the 12 mile ride. They will bring the bike and helmet to the TdP and then take it back after the ride. You just have to call them to reserve your bike – only advanced pre-paid reservations are taken.
Not a bicycle rider come and enjoy the Cultural Festival which opens at 9 am. It is an opportunity for friends and families to relax, enjoy the beauty of the area while being in a peaceful location. Bring your lawn chair and relax under the tall pine trees while listening to upbeat music provided by Radio Baha’i from 9 – noon. Then the Reggae band Mystic Vibration takes over until 2 pm.
Sample culinary treats offered by Plantersville Hunting Club for a donation and you can purchase savory traditional foods from Aunny’s Country Kitchen or the Low Country Creole Food Truck. Don’t forget to stroll by the unique vendors offering local products.
Children will find much to do as well in the children’s activity area. They can participate in the Georgetown Kiwanis Bike Rodeo for preschoolers – 3rd graders from 10 am – noon. Please bring your own bicycle as we will have a very limited supply for sharing. There will even be traditional fair type-food to children’s liking for purchase.
