Open Streets Asheville, SHAPE YOUR CITY 2017, comes to life on Sunday, September 17th. It promises all you asked for: car-free streets for shopping, walking, biking and playing as we build community on our largest public spaces – the streets! This year, enjoy everything you loved last year plus inspiration for community advocacy on an expanded course reaching from Pack Square Park to Pritchard Park. See the Open Streets Asheville for more information!
Our first triathlon just for toddlers 3 to 5 years old. Kids will bike, run and splash their way through a specially-designed course in Pack Square Park. Participants should provide their own bike, trike, or Strider bike for the race. (A limited number of bikes will be available for use if arranged in advance.) All riders should wear a helmet and secure shoes. No flip-flops for this one! The Western North Carolina Bicycle Dealers Association and Blue Ridge Bike Club will be offering bike and helmet check stations as well as a bike practice area. We encourage all participants to take advantage of these services and ensure bikes are in good working order and helmets are worn properly. Preregistration is required. Cost is only $10 for City of Asheville residents and $12 for non-residents. Click here to register today!
Asheville on Bikes Hosts Summer Cycle ‘17 presented by Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty and JAG & Associates Construction
This year’s route features West Asheville’s greenways and neighborhoods and includes something for all levels of riders. The route incorporates AoB’s signature “dynamic intersections” which allow participants to select their distance and elevation gains.
“Riders can keep it flat, on the greenway and under three miles. Or, they can opt for twelve miles with a few climbs. Or, they can select something in between. There is something for everyone, especially those who are new to urban riding,” says AoB’s executive director, Mike Sule. Participants are encouraged to review the route map, have a bicycle in good working condition, and to ride with a water bottle, lights, and a bike bell.
