Sunday Lowcountry Ride

Sunday 1/25/15, there were no kids activities planned, DW was off, and it was sunny.  I got a hall pass so I went out for a few hours.  First decision was which bike to ride.  I went with the big DR because it has better wind protection and it was a bit chilly.

Exactly one mile from the house I realized I hadn't attached the Walmart trash can wind screen (can be seen here:  Walmart Windscreen.  I turned around and started over.

I live about 14 miles from the intersection of Hwy 17 and Guerins Bridge Road north of Mt Pleasant (SC).  From there I went north on some dirt and some gravel and some pavement (Willow Hall Rd, Whilden Rd) until I was close to McClellanville.

Nice and hard packed:

We've had a lot of rain recently:


I then crossed over to the east side of 17 into McClellanville.  There's a dirt road (Dupre Rd) heading out of town north.

I liked this house that was for sale in McClellanville:

Headed up S Santee Rd, then back on 17 briefly to cross the river, and another right turn onto N Santee River Rd.  Followed Estherville Dr and S Island Rd up into Georgetown.

This house is behind the little abandoned store at 17 and S Santee Rd:

Here's the address:

And here's the only other picture of the bike today:

This is along N Santee Rd:

I went into Georgetown and down Front St to the park at the end of the road.  Stopped for a cup of coffee to warm up, and then zipped back down 17 all the way home.  I need to take more pictures.  It was about 140 miles total - almost no traffic, blue skies... nice day.

Here's the approximate route I took to get up to Georgetown:

  1. Awesome TDC East ride report! And that Walmart Trash Can DR Windscreen is still amazing.
