Lake Lure was selected last week as the location of a new Cycle North Carolina weekend “Mountain Ride” slated for Aug. 1-3, 2014.

The town hosted the first stop on Cycle North Carolina’s 2012 “Mountains to Coast Fall Ride” bringing 1,100 cyclists from 38 states, the District of Columbia, and five foreign countries to the area.

“We’re thrilled that Cycle NC will be returning to Lake Lure as a base camp for their new Mountain Ride,” said Town Manager Chris Braund. “Cycle NC participants have a wonderful, positive spirit and an enjoyment of the outdoors that is infectious.”
