Trek Travel Ride

The ride, hosted by Trek Travel will depart the Inn at 10 am and meander through the rolling hills surrounding Greenville and Travelers Rest.  Here is the ride sheet and route!  Light refreshments will be provided before and after.  The Bike Month proclamation with the ever-gracious and cycling enthusiastic Councilwoman Amy Ryberg-Doyle will follow the return of the ride at approximately 1 pm.

We are so excited for our first “Dinner With Friends” event at the Swamp Rabbit Inn that we can hardly contain ourselves!  From the beginning our focus has been about bringing people together and this event brings together some of our very good friends – friends who can cook!

Foodies have always gravitated around the Swamp Rabbit Inn.  It somehow goes together – fitness, food, and friends.  We are all food and wine enthusiasts and want to bring intriguing, well crafted, intimate dining events to our community.  We’ve found that riding bikes and gathering around tables over great food are two of the very best ways to make new friends and great memories.

Greenville’s food scene has been growing by leaps and bounds in tandem with it’s cycling scene.  Just as this May day at the Inn combines the best of both we hope to continue to create collaborative, one of a kind events to celebrate local talent, exceptional experiences and build lasting connections.

Join us in the morning for a taste of the bike touring life with the Trek Travel group ride,  Bike Month kickoff with Councilwoman Doyle at the Inn afterward and then in the evening as we turn over our kitchen to the talented chefs for our very first “Dinner With Friends” event.  It proves to be wonderfully memorable from start to finish.

Feast for the senses
