DeTour de Skunk is a charity bicycle ride through the foothills of the Blue Ridge that begins and ends at the parking area of the Albino Skunk Music Festival (4063 Jordan Rd, Greer, SC 29651) on Saturday October 5, 2019. All proceeds benefit Musician’s Medical Relief and the event is open to the public.
Proceeds of our Fall 2019 ride will benefit Paul Marshall of one of our favorite SkunkFest bands, I SEE HAWKS IN L.A. Paul suffered a random but quite serious eye injury, and has been through a difficult recovery and several surgeries. Treatment and costs are ongoing. Details about Paul’s situation and a link to make a direct donation are found here.
The price is $35 in advance ($40 day-of), which includes registration, a commemorative shirt, some riding snacks and such, a wristband good for a few hours of entry to the festival afterwards (if you want to stay all day you can purchase a Saturday ticket for a reduced price of $45), and a beer token from the Community Tap (must be 21 of course). Advance sign-up is available through Wednesday October 2 here, and day-of sign-ups are fine (cash or check).
Check-in starts Saturday morning at 8:00 am. The rides depart at 9:00 am sharp!
