Take a spin when you are in the Myrtle Beach Area.  
In this article there are a list of suggested bicycle trails and paths that wind along the Grand Strand.

If you are looking to bike the beach, a paved road or in a state park there are several options here in the Grand Strand area.

1.  Some of the best beach biking can be found on Sunset Beach which is just a 15-20 minute drive from North Myrtle Beach.  
2.  Five miles of Robert M. Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach and a portion of Harrelson Blvd by Myrtle Beach
International Airport are part of the 2950-mile East Coast Greenway recreation trail being built between Maine
and Florida.

3.  Bike trails line both sides of Farrow Parkway for 3.6 miles across the former Myrtle Beach Air Force

4.  In Myrtle Beach, bike lanes run along Mr Joe White Avenue; on North Ocean Blvd from about 29th Ave
to 82nd Ave.; the southernmost section of Seaboard St; and the western third of Pine Island Rd.

5. An off-road path extends from 48th Ave North on Robert M. Grissom Parkway to 62nd Ave North in
Myrtle Beach.

6. Cyclists in North Myrtle Beach might like the Barefoot Resort section of the East Coast Greenaway, or
the lanes on Ocean Blvd.

7. In Georgetown County, Bike The Neck (http://www.biketheneck.com) has coordinated 10 miles of trail
segments on the Waccamaw Neck toward a collective goal of 27 miles.

8.  US Business 17 has 4-foot wide lanes on both sides of the road in Murrells Inlet for almost 4 miles south
from the Horry County line.

9. A 1 1/2 mile trail on the western fringe of Huntington Beach State Park extends to Trace Dr, the
northernmost point in Litchfield.

10. From Lakeshore Dr, a path parallels the north side of Boyle Dr then goes south on the east side of US 17
about 1 mile to Willbrook Boulevard.

11. Crossing US 17 with a finger triggered signal lets riders go south along the highway’s western side for
about 3/4 mile to Litchfield Oaks, or head west on the trail along Willbrook for almost 3 miles. Another
trail parallels the east side of US 17 between North and South Causeway Roads of Pawley’s Island.

12.  Conway city officials are working toward integrating the Conway Master Greenaway Plan, viewable at

13. Within what is now the Francis Marion National Forest, the eponymous general sought refuge from the
British during the Revolutionary War. Today, 42 miles of trail through these swampy wetlands, grassy
savannas and coastal pine forests offer off-road cyclists plenty of space to play. Built in 1968, the
Swamp Fox Passage of the Palmetto Trail is one of the Lowcountry’s oldest trails. The trail runs through
an area that was used by logging companies, starting in the late 19th century. Although the network of
trails developed for logging trails was abandoned over a decade before the Forest Service purchased the
land, the elevated railways are still in use as part of the hiking and mountain biking paths. Some of the
trails also cross boardwalks and footbridges. Part of the Palmetto Trail, The Swamp Fox Passage is a flat
42 miles, one way, so pedal as short or as long as you like, then turn around and head home.
