Featuring locally slow cooked barbecue with delicious side dishes, live music and craft beer, this ride winds through scenic rural roads in the foothills and valleys of the Blue Ridge. With little traffic to distract from the cycling, enjoy distances of 30 or 60 miles. Upon completion of the ride, cyclists return to Lake Jemiki's beautiful setting adjacent to a private lake tucked into the mountains to enjoy the festival atmosphere where families join in the fun.
Register before May 17 to be guaranteed a t-shirt. For all others, t-shirts are available while supplies last.
