Welcome to the 12 Hours of Bikar website. The Rotary Club of Greenville SC has presented the Holiday Lights event with the Roper Mountain Science Center for over 20 years. The Club is now adding a second major fundraising project with the 12 Hours of Bikar.

Funds raised from this new Rotary fund raising cycling event will benefit Greenville Rotary Charities. For more detail regarding specific charities please click on the charities section of this website.

Ok, enough about the club and the charities. You are here because you want to find out more about this cycling event and hopefully because you plan to be a participant in the ride. The 12 Hours of Bikar is a unique cycling event for the entire family. Unlike most area cycling rides, this ride takes place over a closed loop course.

The Upstate region offers cyclists of all skill levels many choices of events throughout the year. The Rotary Club wanted to offer cyclists a different type of cycling event. Welcome to the inaugural 12 Hours of BIKAR.

The 12 Hours of BIKAR will take place from 7 am-7 pm on Saturday, August 24th 2013 on the campus of CU-ICAR in Greenville, South Carolina. 12 Hours of BIKAR will allow cyclists to participate for as long they wish. The fun filled event encourages healthy living and lifestyles and will feature food, drink and entertainment for cyclists, their friends and families of all ages and skill levels.

If you enjoy riding the Swamp Rabbit Trail you will love this event. We encourage corporations with teams, families, school and church groups to come participate in the event.

Participants can ride the loop for a few laps or stay for the entire 12 hours.

Included in registration will be a post ride meal for all participants, door prizes and live entertainment.  Riders are encouraged to stay after the ride and bring family and friends for the post ride celebration.
