Greenville SC furthers its status as a bike-friendly sustainable city with its Spring 2013 kick off B-Cycle. The B-Cycle program allows visitors or residents to rent bicycles at any one of several high-profile bike stations throughout the city. Day passes are incredibly affordable (only $5 at program's inauguration) and give visitors the chance to explore the city's renowned Swamp Rabbit Trail.

The Swamp Rabbit bike path extends from Greenville Tech College through the city's award-winning downtown, past Falls Park and on out to Furman University. The trail ends just past scenic Traveler's Rest, a village just north of Greenville.Photo courtesy of Greenville Bicycle
Greenville also has an abundance of shops offering bike rentals, sales and repairs. The Upstate area's mild seasons and rolling terrain have always contributed to its popularity for cycling. But the Swamp Rabbit Trail taking riders through Greenville's award-winning Falls Park certainly hasn't hurt.
The city is so beautiful with its abundance of trees and parks that it's a real pleasure to explore by bicycle. Cleveland Park, which holds the Greenville Zoo and several other attractions is also on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and adjacent to downtown. B-Cycle will help more and more visitors follow their urge to grab a bike and discover Greenville the green way.
Competitive cyclists know Greenville as the home of George Hincapie, former riding partner of Lance Armstrong and a cycling champion and star in his own right. But you certainly don't have to ride like George and Lance to take advantage of this fantastic new amenity in the city of Greenville.
