Meeting on upcoming mountain bike ride to take place Tuesday

Want to learn more about the Mountain Ride that will be held in the Foothills this August, and how you can get involved?

Our Carolina Foothills and Cycle NC will be meeting on Tuesday, March 6, at 11 a.m., at Tryon Town Hall to discuss plans for the August 4-5 Mountain Ride. This is a cycling event that will bring over 400 visitors to the area from several states.

The meeting will highlight how the ride works, initial routes and opportunities for community involvement. Tryon is this year’s selected host town, and Harmon Field will be the gathering spot for cyclists.

Our Carolina Foothills, a nonprofit that promotes tourism through marketing campaigns and events, is facilitating this ride.

If you are interested in getting involved or cannot make this meeting and have questions, please contact Mindy Wiener at mindy@ourcarolinafoothills.com.
