Tour d’Apple cycling event provides four exciting, challenging routes through Western North Carolina’s apple orchards, waterfalls, and mountains to benefit the charitable projects of the Hendersonville Four Seasons Rotary Club. It’s an incredibly scenic ride with options for every type of participant, free food and drinks afterwards, and awesome swag.
The 18th annual Hunter Subaru WNC Flyer will be held at Oskar Blues Brewery in beautiful Western North Carolina. There will be a rolling start with limited waves (from 8-8:45 AM). We can’t think of a better way to spend the day than with a rolling bike ride, a frosty brew, and BBQ… can you?!
Riders will have their choice of a century, metric, half century, and half metric rides which wind through the valleys south of Asheville, NC. There is beautiful mountain scenery around every bend of the road without the long mountain climbs. The Flyer is a ride for everyone - from first time riders to experienced cyclists.
The 17th Annual WNC Flyer will be held in the ‘Cycling Capital of the South’ on Sunday, June 6, 2021. The start/finish are at Bold Rock in Mills River, NC. What better way to spend the day with a bike ride, bluegrass, BBQ and a brew! More info can be found at wncflyer.com.
