About this event

The 27th Annual TarWheel Cycling Event takes place on Saturday, April 9, 2022, on a scenic, flat, countryside course through the beautiful northeastern NC Counties of Pasquotank and Perquimans. You have the option of 33, 62, or 100 mile rides. The rides start on the waterfront in downtown Elizabeth City at Dog Corner Park (600 Southern Avenue). You'll cycle by multiple waterfront areas and the majestic countryside, passing farmlands, pastures, barns, and historic homes. You'll pedal by horses, cows, birds, turtles, and other wildlife. Our countryside skylines are amazing!

**If you registered and paid for the 2020 or 2021 rides and haven't received a refund, your registration is still valid**
This year's ride will be in memory of Mark A. Turner, who passed away recently. Mark was instrumental in the growth of cycling in the Elizabeth City area and was part of the development and success of the TarWheel Cycling Event for years. There will be coffee, water, juice, and light snacks before the ride (we'll be bringing back our famous Balls, Bacon, Bananas, and Brews); and our usual great SAG stops during the ride with the famous devilled eggs, banana bread, smoothies, sweet potato biscuits; "sweet cycling crack," PBandJs, and more! Enjoy a "hot dog bar" with lots of add-ons (including bacon) and drinks post-ride. Come early on Friday evening, April 8th for the Early Packet Pick-up and Social at our local brewery and get a ticket for a free craft brew. Stay through Sunday and enjoy our charming little town and some optional (non-supported) rides. www.Tarwheel.com
