At Anchorage 1770, we think there's really only one way to improve upon the famous bike tours of France and Italy–remove the hills. Which is why our flat Lowcountry terrain makes our cycling trips such an ideal outing for all ambitions–ride for a mile, five, ten or even 34 without a significant hill in sight. Our Bay Street location is the ideal jump point for trips to beaches, old ruins and coastal parks. Stop along the way to picnic or ride to a fun cafe.
