Dear Coastal Cyclists Spring Century riders,

After the clear guidance from the governor of South Carolina, President Trump and public health officials, it is imperative that we cancel the Coastal Cyclists Spring Century for 2020.  This is sad and disappointing for us, but it is the right thing to do in the face of the global pandemic.  Our club has presented this ride for 30 years, in one form or another, and this is the first cancellation that I know of.

Please be patient with us as we sort through the details of cancelling this ride.  This is something we’ve never done before and there are lots of details to consider.  We will be offering three options to registrants.   

Those choices include:

  • Defer your registration to the 2021 Coastal Cyclists Spring Century.  We have not decided the date, yet, and will let you know in the next message. Typically the ride is held each year in April.
  • Donate your registration amount to Coastal Cyclists for use in our bicycle advocacy support.  Coastal Cyclists is a 501(c) non-profit so the donation is tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt for it.
  • Receive a refund for your registration.  We will not refund the convenience fee charged by the registration site nor the price of the jersey.

Jerseys are already in production and we’ll have them in Charleston within a few weeks.  If you’re local in Charleston, we’ll have a place for you to pick your jersey up.  If you’re not, we’ll arrange to ship your jersey to you.  T-Shirts will not be provided

Thank you for your support and for your patience.  We hope for your safety and the safety and health of all of those you love during these extraordinary times.  

- Philip Whirley

Saturday, April 11 - On site packet pickup will open at 6:30 AM the day of the ride.


Preregistered riders signed up by March 1st at Midnight are guaranteed a complimentary event t-shirt. Shirts are available after this date on a first-come, first-serve basis for $10 online. We cannot guarantee shirts to late or walk-up registrations.



We are excited to offer a custom designed ride jersey in both a men's and women's fitted style by Pactimo. Jerseys can be purchased online when you register for $65 until February 21st at midnight, and will be available to riders at packet pickup at the ride.

After this date, jerseys can be purchased directly from the Pactimo Team Store until March 15th. All jerseys ordered through that store will be mailed to the rider. There is no guarantee that you will receive the jersey ordered through the store by ride day. You can order jerseys from Pactimo by clicking THIS LINK!


This year's routes include a 33 miles, 43 miles, a metric century (65 miles), and full century (100 miles). There are optional turns on the route that can make 25 mile or 74 mile routes, also. We will provide route cue sheets at packet pickup or you can grab on the morning of the ride. Below are route maps via Ride With GPS: 25-mile | 33-mile | 43-mile | 65-mile | 75-mile (100-mile bailout) | 100-mile

REST STOPS - We will have 3 fully stocked rest stops filled with lots of great treats: Bananas, granola bars, trail mix, sweet snacks, salty snacks, sports hydration drinks, and other goodies. Don't worry - some routes will hit the same rest stop more than once!


- SAG vehicles will be on the course to provide on route support for mechanical issues and rescue fatigued riders. We will also have onsite mechanics for last minute adjustments, but they are not miracle workers or doing tune-ups on bikes. They will have a small supply of tubes, tires, and other items for sale. Please be sure to bring some cash or credit card for these purchases.

Ride Pacing

Lowcountry Racing (LCR) will provide "ride guides"...riders who will take folks on the metric century and full century at established speeds, so you don't have to "find" a paceline that suits your speed. Look for the pace group signs at the start. 18-20MPH and 22-24MPH!

Keep in mind: You can always ride at your own pace and you do not have to ride with a pace group!

Post Ride Feast and Fun

Make sure you leave time to hang out post ride and space in your stomach for the great food and music we have lined up! We'll have a few hours of awesome live music, and the caterers will be there for your post-ride meal.

Companion Meals

This year we are offering the opportunity to buy meals for your non-riding companions who want to join us after the ride.

You can buy tickets for companion meals online when you register. We cannot guarantee that additional meals will be available for purchase for late and walk-up registrations.

Parking Info

Please enter the parking lots via Highway 17 (as if you were going to the Sewee Outpost). Entrance from Sewee Road will be closed. Parking attendants will be onsite to facilitate parking. We will be filling up the front parking lots (by registration) first, followed by the lots closest to the Sewee Outpost last.

What to Bring/Wear

Helmets, comfortable cycling shorts and jersey, your favorite nutrition (if you don't like the rest stop grub) and plenty of water and water bottles. And, of course - a safe, functioning bicycle.

We suggest you bring bug spray and sunscreen too!

Looking forward to seeing you out there!



Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

We welcome all ages, but if you're a minor, you must have a parent or guardian signature. It's best for a parent or guardian to accompany young people on the ride.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is no transportation option other than private vehicle. There is plenty of parking, though, and there will be a designated drop-off point for those who are catching a ride with someone who will not be riding.

What's the refund policy?

No refunds are offered. Please keep in mind that Coastal Cyclists is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and your contribution can be tax-deductlble so if you do not make it to the ride, you should consider your payment to be a contribution to the future of cycling in South Carolina.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

While you do not have to bring your printed ticket, it often helps because we can just scan the bar code on the ticket to confirm your reservation.

Can I update my registration information?

Sure! Email and they can help you with your information change.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes. It is possible to transfer your registration on the RacesOnline site.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No. Because we require a release of liability form to be signed by the rider (or the parent/guardian of a minor), we require that the person on the registration be the person who rides. If it looks like you're not going to be able to ride and someone else will ride in your place, please use the RacesOnline option to transfer your registration so that the release form is appropriately modified.

Do I have to ride in one of the pace groups?

Absolutely not! You ride the way you want to ride at the speed you like. The pace groups are there as a fun, automatic group for those wishing to maintain a certain pace, but it is not at all required. The important thing is that you have a good time.
