New Home for the Greenville SC Bike on The Swamp Rabbit Trail.

The Greenville SC bike has been relocated to “The Tennis Center – Kroc Greenville” (205 Gibbs St. Greenville SC 29601).  Just 350 yards to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, (future will have the trail right off the parking lot) with free parking, nice restroom facilities and a great covered area for staging before you head out for a ride with the family. Go check them out, see the Heather’s Ride bike, and please tell them “Thank You!” for partnering with us to provide access for families of those with special needs to get out and ride too!

Heather’s Ride Brings Special-Needs Bikes to the Swamp Rabbit

Six months ago, an idea came to Stephen Houston, fully formed, as he sat in church: Put bikes on the Swamp Rabbit Trail for kids with special needs.
“It’s an activity we all take for granted,” said Houston, an avid mountain biker. “Kids that would never be able to ride a bike should get the chance to get the sensation we all get when zooming down the trail.”
That day, the Heather’s Ride program was born. Now a special-needs bike, valued at $7,200, is housed at TTR Bikes next to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery, waiting for families who want to reserve it. Houston, an account manager in pharmaceutical sales, is “very close” to getting funding for two more children’s bikes and another for adults with special needs.
“I want a whole army of these,” he said. “But I’m hoping to have four by May.”
The project was a natural fit for Houston, whose sister Heather was diagnosed with Sturge-Weber, a severe form of epilepsy, at age 3. Now 43, Heather continues to be an inspiration for him.
“She always focuses on what she can do and what she wants to do, not what she can’t do,” Houston said. Despite discomfort and spasticity on her left side caused by the disease, she rides 20 miles a day on her stationary bike, though she couldn’t ride on a trail on a regular bike because of the agility needed to steer around people and stop quickly.
The new Heather’s Ride bike eradicates those problems.

First Bike Clinic


Some great shots from the “First Bike Clinic” Day on October 4th. We had an awesome day and met wonderful families. Thrilled to get so many folks on the bike for a trial.

Having perfect weather for a ride! Let us know when we can reserve a bike for you and your child to get out there on the Swamp Rabbit in Greenville, or the Rail Trail in Spartanburg!

The 11-year-old, who normally gets around in a wheelchair, was moving down Greenville’s Swamp Rabbit Trail in the front seat of an 85-pound tandem tricycle.

Her feeding tube was duct taped to the handle bars and her mother, Donna, was behind her pedaling and steering the three-wheeled vehicle.

Caroline put her hands in the air and pretended she was flying.
