The 16th annual Hunter Subaru WNC Flyer (formerly called Fletcher Flyer) will be held in the “Cycling Capital of the South”, Brevard, NC. The start/finish will be at Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC. What better way to spend the day than with a Bike Ride, Bluegrass, BBQ and a complimentary first Brew!
Riders will have their choice of a full century, metric century, half century, and half metric rides which wind through the valleys south of Asheville, NC. Although it is the least hilly ride in Western North Carolina, it has plenty of rolling hills to keep all riders interested. There is beautiful mountain scenery without the long mountain climbs. The Flyer is a ride for everyone from first time riders to experience riders.
This is a fully supported ride with six well-stocked rest stops and an after ride party, including BBQ/Veggie Lunch Option for an add-on of $5 for participants and $10 for guests of participants, a Bluegrass band, a beer (1st beer compliments of Oskar Blues) and a root beer float shooter.
1. The WNC Flyer ride committee believes in keeping ride costs as low as possible for all cyclists in our region and community to be able to participate. So for 2019, we will not increase the cost of the ride registration fees.
2. We have noticed the amount of leftover food each year after our pre-ride party and we want to do our part in reducing waste from our event and helping our planet! With that said, we will continue to keep the registration pricing the same, and then have our post-ride meal as an additional add-on option for $5. That way if you plan to just ride and leave without eating, you will save $5 and we will have reduced the food waste. The ride will have three options for the post ride meal including your choice of BBQ, Vegetarian and/or Vegan lunch. For an additional $10 you can add-on a meal for your friends/family members that are joining you at the ride but not participating. We are re-vamping our vegan and veggie menu to have more options too! If you plan to stay after your ride to eat and drink, meals will need to be pre-ordered through online registration no later than May 23rd!
3. The four routes are currently under evaluation and will be updated for 2019. We want to make our ride safer and flatter (if that is even possible, since we are the flattest ride in WNC)! So don't worry, we will not be making the routes more difficult.
4. You asked for it! We now have bib shorts to go along with our commemorative, custom-designed Giordana cycling jerseys. Jerseys and shorts can be purchased during online registration. The deadline to order jerseys and shorts is Tuesday, April 9th at NOON EST.
