What you'll do

The day will start with breakfast at a local restaurant if you’d like, followed by a 40-60 mile bike ride (keep in mind that most rides in the High Country gain about 1,000ft for every 10 miles) that will be filled full of epic photo opportunities, overlooks that allow you to see for miles, a stop at an old mercantile for some the best baked goods (depending on our route) and then you’ll see pastures and prairies before looping around and heading back to the start. Some places few people have seen before! Post-ride we can enjoy a local craft beer or local coffee drink.
Other things to note
If the place you’re staying doesn’t allow room for your bike(s) I have plenty of room in my basement to store them. I’ll supply on the bike nutrition from Skratch, GU, Hammer and Nuun. Prior to the ride we can meet for coffee and discuss the route for the day.

Where you'll be

The ride will have overlooks that expand for miles, on some clear days you’ll be able to see Charlotte from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We may even see a bear or wild turkeys and deer! We’ll follow a winding road that traces the Watauga River and we’ll stop by an old mercantile that has some of the best baked goods you’ll ever eat before heading back to the start.
