Myrtle Beach has bike lanes all over the place, including the entirety of Ocean Boulevard. It's really nice to ride along the ocean for miles.

It's absolutely dead flat here. The only hill in any of my routes is a road that overpasses a golf cart path at one of our 100+ golf courses.

The police are very friendly. The bicycle cops will even race you for a few blocks if they have the time.

Most drivers are very courteous and give bikers plenty of room. The only problem is that the golfers start getting drunk and hitting the strip joints by 3pm. After that, the tourists start getting loaded. So, by 6pm, an estimated 60% of our drivers have been drinking... so you have to use an extra degree of care when riding in the evening.

By the way, it was 69 degrees and sunny today. Excellent cycling weather!

Come on down!!!
