Is there a Greenville series this year?(15 posts)

Is there a Greenville series this year?cam3

Since USCF has not sent out a calendar and the greenvillespinners' site doesn't list any dates, I wondered if the Greenville series was still on this year? I know in past years, people around the Donaldson Center have complained about the traffic and 'nature breaks'. Thanks.
YES and the calender is up btw!CARBON110

It will be a great series too. About 6-8 races if weather prevails. Also check out TBRA.org Good luck and let me know if you need any info on race courses. I have done them all and theres two that area little tricky but a blast!! By the way the racers there are really laid back when your in the field. They know how to have a good time...

......but yo its like "just bike racing" yo, like don't let it go to your head aight

PEACE OUT ! lmao
Where is the calendar?cam3

I have a pdf file I will post tomorrow. But here is the low down: Last weekend in Feb Greenville series will start most likely in the Donaldson center both days. Then every weekend
until the Brooks Omnium March twenty something 21/22? The website is usually greenvillespinners.org but some people have the inside info I guess. I will put up the caelenders I have for you this weekend or tomorrow but I am sure that it starts Feb 28/29 at Donaldson center regardless of weather. I raced there when it was 32 degress out in pouring pouring rain...we raced the whole race in hard pelting rain from start to finish...even warmed up in it
Where else?katie1

I checked greenvillespinners.org today. I didn't see anything mentioned. Do you know if they are doing Dividing Waters or River Falls?
the schedule is late!Sadlebred

I was promised about 2 weeks ago that I'd have a southeastern road race schedule in my hands "Soon" to post on Southeasterncycling.com. The promoters' meeting was not until January 10th. I hope to see it in the next week. If I don't, I'll email the NC USCF official that puts the calendar together. It will be up on Southeasterncycling.com as soon as I get it.

Rumor has it Greenville is only going to be 3 weeks this year.

The first race of the year will be Feb. 22 in Hiram, GA, about 25 minutes outside of Atlanta. See http://www.boneshakerscyclingteam.com for more info. and a race flyer.
not what I was told but..........CARBON110

I'd be surprised to see the first race in GA. In anycase I am sure they will do Diving water and river falls since they are the most popular races in the series to beigin with. I will post what I have for a scheduele tomorrow or the next day. Thanks for the info sadlebred

I'm in Greenville also. Have no idea about the series but just amazed at how many G'villians there are here.

I remember a few months ago someone posted a picture of the billboard for Flat Rock Grille ("there's room for all of God's creatures - right next to the mashed potatoes') or was it City Range? . I see that sign right from my office window.

Anyway, uh, cool.

Why do we have the worst selection of restaurants in the country? Is it pay-back for the good riding?

Could be. There's a few decent places, but I think you're right.

Is it just me or are there way too many people in Greenville now? It could all be relative though as my wife and I seem to be the only people here who actually grew up here.

I was raised in Greenville but live in Atlanta. I still consider myself a hometown girl from up there.

I agree with you guys that Gvle lacks restaurants. Come on down to Atlanta if you want to ride and get some great food. We have an abundance of good, cheap restaurants and of course, the fine dining of a big city.

you both should check out Ashevilles' bike club for some fun rides. Alot of really cool women, some hard core racers some not. Asheville is a straight shot from Gnvl on 26West.60 minutes.

I would be happy to make the introduction so you could meet up with them. They do women specific group rides every week with an occassional pro racer in the group. But its very laid back and casual...not a hammer fest but they have those to if your interested

Sometimes we make a dining run to Atlanta.

Brasserie Le Coze and Watershed are my most recent faves since Soto closed. Is Rocky's Pizza still going?

Did I hear you have a Whole Foods Market now?

I'd be fat if I lived in Atlanta.

We have 3 Whole Foods Markets. Whole Foods also bought out Harry's Farmers Market, one of the original healthy grocery store chains in this area. I love Whole Foods!

Rocky's isn't around anymore. The owner comitted suicide about a year ago. I think the building is empty.

You need to try Figo Pasta on Howell Mill/Huff Rd. It's so good! I'd be fat if I didn't ride so much :) I have to aim for an extra hour or so a week just to be able to eat out. I read a study somewhere a year or two ago that said people in Atlanta eat out more than almost any southern city. I ate out 4 nights this week, and it's not Sat. yet.

I grew up on Greenville's East Side riding horses at J&J Stables on Pelham Rd. It's now a retirement home, and the former owner has a stable in Mauldin. *I* remember when Haywood Rd. had nothing on it other than the vet clinic we took our dog to. There was no Haywood Mall. (I'm not old--just 29). Pelham Rd. was two lane until you crossed over Roper Mtn, when it turned into 4 lanes.

If ya'll want to talk about Gvle, email me at sttarlite at hotmail dot com.
do you live on the Eastside?litespeedchick

I think that's where all the transplants are.

I grew up just across the line in Sburg county, but my Dad worked in the metropolis of Greer, so I consider myself local. Now living in G'ville county, I have had the same first 3 digits of phone number MY ENTIRE LIFE. Kind of embarrassing, actually.

Older people(but not THAT old) have told me that Haywood Road used to be considered too far out in the sticks to live.
