The 27th Annual TarWheel Cycling Event takes place on Saturday, April 18, 2020, on a scenic, flat, countryside course through the beautiful northeastern NC counties of Pasquotank, Perquimans and Chowan. You have the option of 33, 62, or 100 mile rides, and/or shorter 1 mile to 5 mile Fun Rides.  The rides start on the waterfront in downtown Elizabeth City. 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! Some of you will pedal through the quaint little town of Hertford.   *We've added 1 mile to 5 mile fun rides for the kids and riders who want to enjoy shorter neighborhood routes.    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 hot dogs and drinks post-ride.     Come early on Friday evening, April 17th 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
