Wilmington has heavy recreational traffic along the beach south to Fort Fisher and the ferry crossing the mouth of Cape Fear River. From Shalotte the terrain is essentially flat and follows two-lane roads through farm country and small towns. These conditions continue into South Carolina. The spur into Charleston gets busy as you near the city. A narrow country bridge crosses the Savannah River into Georgia, where the route heads inland to skirt around Fort Stewart and Savannah. The terrain becomes slightly rolling. Statesboro access is easy and the section ends in downtown.Click on enlargement for detail.

We rode a portion of the South Carolina section starting in Conway SC and Finishing at the Georgia border. The routing layed out by Adventure Cycling was for the most part lightly traveled rural roads in great conditon for cycling. In this section of the route you must determine the distance you want to ride and pick overnight stays accordingly becuase there is nothing between what is shown on the Adventure Cycling map. I would highly recommend this route and would ride it again if the opportunity presented itself.
