Our rides offer cyclists of all ages and abilities a chance to enjoy a fantastic trek through Hilton Head, a Gold Level Bike Friendly Community, and our pre- and post-ride events revel in the culture, the music and the beauty of Hilton Head Island’s community.

November 17th - The Main Ride

“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike” – John F Kennedy
No matter your cycling skill level, from casual peddler to cycle enthusiast, Pedal Hilton Head has a ride for you and your group. For the weekend warrior, choose between two rides; enjoy a 10-mile ride through the magnificent Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort or go back into Hilton Head’s history with the 20-mile ride through Port Royal Plantation – both are NEW routes in 2019! For the more adventurous rider, choose between the 40-mile ride which crosses over the bridges to the mainland, or the metric century 62-mile ride to enjoy the island’s most scenic vistas, including a tour through the exclusive community of Spanish Wells. For the family, there’s a short two-mile beach and pathway ride – bring your family and join kids from the Boys & Girls Club too! 
The fun doesn’t end after the ride! Meet all participants at the after-party at Coligny Plaza for a celebration with complimentary food, music, libations for purchase and more.
