What Marnie says.

It was 30F at the start of my cyclocross race yesterday. Good clothes made it all fine and dandy.

Wear good winter clothing and you can ride year 'round. I road ride if the roads are not icy, and I LOVE to go mtn biking on the trails in the snow, we have so much fun.

I moved here to SC from Wyoming so they're all warm days, lol. I ride unless it's icy - but maybe you're downstate and won't have that problem.

I also don't eat any of the biscuits....now, Krispy Kremes? I have to look the other way back from the gym so I don't see the Hot Doughnut sign is on!

Seriously, there are lots of good trails and well-ridden roads all over the state. Enjoy!

Welcome! DH has a rule, if it is above 50 we road ride, if it is between 40 and 50 we mountain bike ride, below 40 and we hike. Good luck.

Moved to SC a few years ago. Need to burn off some South Carolina biscuits. Love to road bike (bicycle) but cold weather forces other activities. I hope for an occasional warm day here in SC to get out riding.
