Assault on the Carolinas…by Bicycles

For 13 years now, the Assault on the Carolinas, which takes place in beautiful Brevard, North Carolina,  has served as one of the Pisgah Forest Rotary Club’s annual fundraisers.  It is the perfect opportunity for cycling enthusiasts to enjoy their favorite sport while supporting the Rotary Club’s efforts to serve the youth and community of Transylvania County.  This year’s event will take place on April 14th, beginning at approximately 9:00 a.m.  Your exact start time will depend on whether you choose the 100k, 60k, or 40k ride.

The 100k ride is intended for serious, experienced cyclists ready for a challenge that benefits a good cause.  It will take you through mountains and valleys in both North and South Carolina, at one point going uphill for 6 miles at Caesar’s Head.  The 60k ride offers a good challenge for intermediate cyclists, and the 40k ride takes you on a relatively gentle ride through the scenic river valleys of beautiful Transylvania County.

No matter which ride you choose, the event will begin at the Water Oak Suites Building at the corner of East Main and Johnson Streets in Brevard, NC.  All of the courses are well-marked and have fully-stocked rest stops with bathrooms.  There will be traffic support at all major intersections along the route, and a hot lunch will be waiting for you upon your return.
