Winter Rides Sunday Jan. 13th

Happy New Year everyone! We've got new rides coming up, trying to do two a month as long as the weather stays nice. We'll also be doing them a bit earlier to stave off the cold and get you home in time for whatever else you do on Sunday afternoons.

Our first ride of the New Year will be on January 13th at 12:00 pm. Meet at 108 Mount Clare Ave which is at the corner of Mount Clare and Hillside in N. Asheville. We'll take a leisurely cruise and finish at the Wedge, Dirty Jacks, or possibly Coxe Ave. Asheville Brewing depending on popular vote for local beers.

See ya on the road.


Lets Rock and Ride!

Alley Quest!

Make ready your mighty steed, and gather ye bannermen. Darkness sweeps across the land and now comes a time where mighty heroes are needed. To combat this rising evil you must journey through the heart of the Cesspool of Sin and Quest through the perilous shadow lands of Old Ashevillia.

Do you and your fellow banner(wo)men have the stones to take the oath of knights of the Ashevillius Pedalus Punkus (who the hell are they?), become the subject of song and epic poem for centuries to come, and reap bountiful rewards for your heroic acts of chivalry and knighty-ness. Or will you become dragon juice, forever forgotten and family reduced to farming mud in an anarcho-syndicalist commune.

This Quest is not for the weak of heart or shallow of spirit only the best dressed heroes will survive (so anybody). For when you play the Game of Alley Cat you win or you ̶D̶I̶E̶ come in second, third, fourth, etc., etc.

Good luck heroes and heroines, may the old gods of Carolinia keep you on your quest.

Required Questing tools: Gold (money $2-$10), an enchanted talking device; a magical imaging device, Quills and parchment, water, a steed of the bicycle variety (extra points for 2 hump camels, and single steeds), a scroll of identity (your ID), and a taste for horns of ale.

Strongly encouraged: Decorated steeds, armor, swords, helms, two halves of a coconut, a goblet, fair maidens and codpieces.

Our Champions feast will be in West Asheville and we're meeting up at the Parking Lot below White Duck Taco Shop.

Fabulous prizes for 1st and 2nd place.

The Asheville cycling community lost a great guy in Gary Cummings this past week so we are postponing our scheduled 3:00 ride on Saturday. If you knew Gary or his family we encourage you to gather, pedal and celebrate his life.

Ride on Saturday February 18th

Come out for a leisurely ride with your friends and neighbors on Saturday, February 18th at 3:00 pm. We'll ride between 10 and 12 miles and end at The Bywater for beverages afterwards. Meet at the usual spot at 3:00 pm and we'll roll out @ 3:05. Bring any bike you have, we wait for everyone. Don't be discouraged if you're on your mountain bike and a bunch of roadies seem to be blowing you out, it's just the way their bikes are made (you're getting a way better work out). The goal here is to finish the ride, to meet new folks and most importantly to get out on your bike. Can't wait to see you out on Saturday.



P.S. I'm looking for someone to guest lead the ride on March 3rd as I'll be unavoidably out of town. If you'd like to lead let me know. Shoot me an email hreed(at) or hcreed(at)
