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:
