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. Cyclists enjoy distances of 34 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 can join in the fun.
Cyclists must register BEFORE April 28 to be guaranteed a t-shirt. For all other cyclists, t-shirts are available while supplies last.
