Diverse riding experiences, a mild climate, and the unique southern-mountain flavor make upstate South Carolina a must-visit biking destination. Ride the quiet country roads, scale the epic climbs, bomb down the thunderous Paris Mountain State Park, or keep it fun at the Gateway Park skills course. Prefer a slower pace? Take a relaxing pedal down the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 22-mile paved greenway trail connecting downtown Greenville with Travelers Rest, South Carolina.

If you are riding bikes or planning any outdoor adventure in upstate South Carolina, check out The Swamp Rabbit Inn for unique, bike-friendly lodging. Rent a room at their modern B&B in downtown Greenville, a southern foodie paradise and one of the South’s liveliest downtowns. Or stay at their second location in the hip mountain town of Travelers Rest.

The two locations are equal parts eclectic and timeless. With modern European-style decor and big Southern porches, the Swamp Rabbit is a positively charming base to launch all sorts of adventures.

You can also choose from any of the Swamp Rabbit Inn’s six vacation rentals along the Swamp Rabbit Trail. They cater to cyclists with bike stands in the rooms. Their Cycling Greenville SC guidebook and mobile app maps out 20 great rides in the area, including local tips and suggestions to get the most out of your stay. Bring your own bikes or rent directly from the inn.

The Greenville location hosts a number of can’t-miss events, including the Swamp Rabbit Music Festival in September. During the summer, chow down on local food trucks, sample craft beers and wine, and jam to some of the area’s best musicians at Truck Inn Tuesdays.

From Swamp Rabbit Inn TR, you’re just a short walk to Sidewall Pizza, Swamp Rabbit Brewery, Sunrift Adventures, and Tandem Creperie.
