The Tour d’Apple is an exciting ride through Western North Carolina’s apple orchards, waterfalls, and mountains to benefit the charitable projects of the Hendersonville Four Seasons Rotary Club. It includes a full Century (100 miles), a metric-century (63 miles), as well as 45 mile and 25 mile options. What better way to kick off Labor Day than with this gorgeous trek through some of North Carolina’s most beautiful terrain in the morning! The ride features an exciting course, no matter which distance you choose, complete with plenty of stocked rest stops. The ride begins at 8:00 am at Blue Ridge Community College.
Benefiting the local Four Seasons Rotary Club, proceeds from this ride will support the Rotary Club in assisting many local projects, such as Head Start, Boy Scouts, Bruce Drysdale BackPack Program, Children & Family Resource Center, Team ECCO, Special Needs Sports and scholarships at Blue Ridge Community College.
“I’ve done over 100 organized rides like this and the 2 most important factors to me personally are a clearly marked course and an ample number of port o Johns at the rest stops,” says a past participant. “Tour d’ Apple gets an A+ in both categories. Probably the best marked route I’ve ever experienced. Job well done!”
