Collier Lilly Ride

THE COLLIER LILLY RIDE IS NOW A VIRTUAL RIDE DUE TO COVID-19. VISIT https://www.bikesignup.com/Race/NC/Asheville/TheCollierLilyRideforNCOutwardBoundSchool for details. 

Since 2003 thousands of riders have participated in the Collier Lilly Ride, an annual recreational bike ride honoring the memory of Collier Cobb Lilly, a graduate of the North Carolina Outward Bound School (NCOBS). 2015 marked the ride’s move from the “flat country” surrounding Davidson, NC to the rugged mountains around Asheville, where NCOBS is based. The proceeds from this year’s event will fund scholarships for Western North Carolina youth to attend a life-changing NCOBS wilderness course. North Carolina Outward Bound School is the leading provider of experiential and outdoor education programs for youth and adults. Outward Bound has helped people discover strength of character, an ability to lead, and desire to serve.

50 MILE CENTURY RIDE
The 50 mile ride offers a beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain route, with 3,600 feet of climbing, that will start and end at the Wedge at Foundation in Asheville. In keeping with Outward Bound’s bedrock principles of “challenge and discovery,” the Collier Lilly Ride for NCOBS will take riders over challenging mountain passes and allow them to discover scenic roads for the first time. This exciting event is being held on Memorial Day Weekend. Cue Sheet and Map
