The White Squirrel Classic

The White Squirrel Cycling Classic is a classic fall spinner during fabulous fall leaf season. Starting and ending in downtown Brevard, NC, riders will head out on flat valley roads near the base of Pisgah National Forest. They’ll meander along the French Broad River before heading into Henderson County and then back to downtown Brevard. These routes will lead riders on a fully guided and supported tour of some Transylvania County’s finest roads! Chip timing with King of the Mountain segments, fully supported rest stops with medical and mechanical, and SAG wagons.

October 4th
Tour de Pumpkin
The Rutherford Outdoor Coalition sponsors the annual Tour de Pumpkin rides to support the Rutherford Housing Partnership. The rides consist of a 50k and 100k loop. For more information visit their page here.

October 4th Barnaroo CX

As part of the Asheville area Barnaroo music festival, there will be a cyclocross race  during the event. So while rock, hard rock, and funk music is going on – all to raise money for the Asheville Music School – you can be rocking your dismounts, or getting rocked, while rowdy, music-crazed, beer-fueled fans scream and cheer you on. It sounds like euro-style ‘cross race atmosphere to me!

The race is October 4th with categories C, B, and A at 1:00p, 2:00p, and 3:00p, respectively. VeloSports Racing sponsors Hi-Wire Brewing and Youngblood Bicycles are part of this as well. We hope to see the rest of you there. Download the race flier here
