May is right around the corner, and if you’re a big fan of Hilton Head and biking, you know that means it’s almost time to Pedal Hilton Head Island! Every year, this highly organized cycling event is put on to raise money for The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island. It’s been a mainstay here on the island for 16 years, benefiting the children here who need it most. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, we’ve got all the information you need to participate!

Where is Pedal Hilton Head Island 2024?

The starting and finish point is at Lowcountry Celebration Park. Due to limited parking, participants are encouraged to ride their bikes to the park. If driving is necessary, parking can be found a mile away at the University of South Carolina Beaufort-Hilton Head Campus.

Registration Costs

People who registered early got discounted rates, but from now through May 4th, the cost is $90 for all routes and includes a t-shirt, snacks at the rest stops, and a post-ride meal.

The $300 registration fee to Pedal for a Kid includes a commemorative jersey, t-shirt, snacks, a post-ride meal, a photo of the Boys & Girls Club child you are riding for to pin on your jersey, and a donation to the club itself.

If you’re not able to make it to the event or just want to ride on your own time but still contribute, you can register for Pedal Your Way for $50 and still receive the t-shirt.


Don’t forget, this is a recreational ride for charity, not a race. This is all for fun and a good cause. And if you don’t have your own bike to participate, you can always just rent one. We hope to see you there!
