The Blowing Rock Fall Classic is a 72 mile bike ride, coming on September 16, 2017. It is part of a Triple Crown of bike rides along with Blood, Sweat & Gears and the Beech Mountain Metric of the High Country Cycling Hat Trick. The circuit has an elevation gain of over 6000 feet and follows some of the most scenic roads in the state. (There is a second cycling event on Sunday at Blue Ridge Mountain Club called the Blue Ridge Ascent. Two rides, two days, all mountain!)
The ride starts Saturday morning at 8am, beginning and ending on Park Avenue, in front of the Police Department. Park Avenue will be closed to automobile traffic Saturday from dawn until the race is officially over around 4pm.
Follow the event’s official page on Facebook for up-to-date information.
