It’s not your average LOWVELO bike ride team. There are no bicycle shorts. There are no helmets. There are not even any road bikes. The average age? Somewhere between 80 and 90 years old – proof that wellness can be found at any stage of life.
It was never a question. Jessica Baxter was going to college. It was something her mother always pushed for her children. Baxter was already doing a good job of securing the funds to get her education – but she got a boost when she was awarded a LOWVELO Scholarship.
After months of searching for the perfect person to join LOWVELO as our new event manager, we are so excited to finally welcome Chris Winn to our team! He is passionate about growing the Charleston cycling community, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and fighting back against cancer.
For most beginners to biking, the idea of riding 20 miles would seem daunting, or even impossible. But after beating stage 4 melanoma, Ashley Mahoney is an expert at overcoming challenges and laughing in the face of impossible.
When she said “yes” to riding in LOWVELO21 with her best friend, who had just survived a cancer scare, Jaeger Parsons realized she had another personal reason for wanting to help fund lifesaving cancer research.

LOWVELO returns for its fifth year, with all rider-raised dollars going to support cancer research at Hollings. Registration opens April 3!

A total of 891 riders and 105 teams raised more than $427,000 to make LOWVELO22 the biggest yet.
