The many mountain bicycling and hiking trails in the Central Savannah River area have blossomed from the hard work of a "detonator in the explosion of trails," Bill Victor.
Bill is a member of the Central Savannah River Chapter of the Southern Off-Road Bicycling Association; South Carolina State Representative for the International Mountain Bicycling Association; and Owner/Manager of Long Cane Trails, LLC.
Bill and a group of about 20 riders founded the Central Savannah River Chapter with the goal of fomenting excellent trail management and partnerships. What was once ten miles of illegal, eroding, poorly located trail, is now almost 30 miles of professionally designed and constructed trail, designed to be financially and environmentally sustainable for years to come.
