We cycle the Beaufort area, which showcases the very best the South Carolina Low Country has to offer. A pristine route along saltwater marshes, massive oak groves and rivers. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach by the lighthouse and explore historic Beaufort with its lovely mansions, built by the wealthy owners of cotton, indigo, and rice plantations.

Day 3:

Starting at the Smallest Church in America we will bike in rural countryside through salt marshes, pine forests and the Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge, the home of many water birds. Then, we cruise through the tiny villages of Shellman Bluff, Pine Harbor and Eulonia. Then on to Valona to see shrimp boats and Ridgeville to look at the Victorian style homes. We catch the ferry to Sapelo Island.
