About This Activity

A race like no other, with an after party that will change the landscape of the "post ride"

A Metric Century and 30 mile route starting at the newly established Whippoorwill will take you across some of the best stretches of road in Burke County.

The course is designed to be scenic yet challenging with some great climbs and descents.

The ride will be benefiting a few local organizations committed to empowering Burke. Alivecubed, a non-profit that fuels bucket list experiences for heroes who need a little help to realize a dream and the Foothills Conservancy who are committed to preserving and protecting the places we love in the Eastern Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this event unique?

It will be hands down, the people that attend and the after party. It's easy to ride in a beautiful landscape in this area, we are surrounded with beauty. The uniqueness of this event comes with our partnership with Fonta Flora and the newly established Whippoorwill property in Nebo, NC.

Music, food, drinks, and the Pumpkin Peddler. Yes! The PP is actually the post race ride, where participants will be participating in a 4-6 lap race on...wait for it KIDS BIKES to see who will be crowned The Pumpkin Peddler King and Queen. All the proceeds of the after party race will be donated to the South Mountain Children's Home, a foster community located near Lake James. Post ride is limited so sign up early!!!
