Spin-tennial Bike Fest Challenge

Celebrating both the anniversary of Spindale and local outdoor recreation, ROC is presenting the Spin-tennial Bike Fest and 100K Challenge.

Get outside and enjoy the Thermalbelt Rail Trail this June for the Town of Spindale’s 100th anniversary “Spin-Tennial Sports Showcase.” This event is family-friendly and bound to be all-around fun with bikes, games, food, and drinks. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing social event or to physically challenge yourself, Spin-tennial has something for everyone! Register for the 100K or personal best challenge on your bike to get a t-shirt and biker snap band, have your photo with your distance, and maybe win some cool prizes. All are welcome to join the fun, but only registrants are eligible for prizes at the end of the day!
