Anyone considering riding Cycle NC this Fall?
With this year's Cycle NC spending one night at Lowes Motor Speedway in Concord......knowing the roads around here, the route will have to come within a mile of my house---unless they put them on roads that I'd never ride on because of heavy traffic. I might just opt to have my wife drop me off at the start since her sister lives just a few miles away and then ride the first 3 days........plus it is a great time of the year to camp. Tailor made for me this year!!!
Plus it has to be all downhill since it starts in the mountains and ends at the coast......and the prevailing wind will be at your back.
The 2008 Cycle North Carolina "Mountains to the Coast" ride will be held Saturday, September 27 (check-in) to Saturday, October 4. The ride will begin in Black Mountain and end in Oak Island.
The tentative overnight towns are: Black Mountain, Morganton, Lincolnton, Concord-Lowes Motor Speedway, Wingate, Laurel Hill, White Lake, and Oak Island
The registration brochure and form will be available in April. You can pick up a Fall Ride Brochure at the 5th Annual Spring Ride in Oriental, NC.
We hope to see you September 27th in Black Mountain for the 10th Annual Cycle North Carolina "Mountains to the Coast" ride!
