Issaqueena’s Last Ride is a challenging bicycle ride through the beautiful foothills of the
Blue Ridge Mountains of South Carolina. All routes have spectacular
views of the surrounding mountains. The 60, 80 and 100 mile routes climb the Blue Ridge
Escarpment offering views of Lake Jocassee and its surroundings while the 30 and 52 mile route
meanders around rural north Oconee County. Regardless of which scenic route you choose, all the roads have little car traffic.
At registration on Saturday morning baked goods and coffee are available for
that last minute fueling. Upon ride completion enjoy home-made sandwiches, soups
and other goodies. Once again our world famous
collard green & black-eyed pea
soup is on the menu.
Some of the many door prizes include cycling gear from REI, Terry Bicycles and Southpaw Cycles,
rafting passes from Nantahala Outdoor Center, zipline passes from Wildwater, massage from Hands On Retreat, free registration to other local bike events and gift baskets

bike adjustments to make your ride go smoother.
