Willcox Inn Aiken South Carolina

The e-bike tour was probably my favorite part of a visit to Aiken, South Carolina. A twist of a throttle gave me the feeling of having a super power and we made several stops along the way to learn about the history of this small city in South Carolina that’s famous for breeding and training race-winning thoroughbreds.
