Pisgah Cycling is a non-profit social club promoting cycling in and around Transylvania County through education, advocacy, support and, most of all, riding.
The group of cycling enthusiasts provides support by volunteering at area mountain and road races and rides such as the Pisgah Stage Race, the Assault on The Carolinas, the Looking Glass Tour and the Pisgah Omnium. At such events Pisgah Cycling offers necessary support, ranging from working aid stations to riding sweep or driving SAG.
Pisgah Cycling advocates and educates by spreading information about cycling safety and courtesy at area community events like the Kids GO Festival, July 4th Festival and Halloweenfest.
Additionally, the group offers its members and the larger community opportunities to practice and enjoy the sport of cycling through organized group rides. The club hosts a number of rides:
•Spin and Grin road ride – every Saturday from the Comporium lot in downtown Brevard (currently 9 a.m., but times shift during the year).
•Ladies’ Mountain Bike Ride – weekly on Thursdays at 5:45 p.m. (during the summer season) and every other week on Sundays at 2 p.m. (this is a ladies only ride).
•Sunday Mountain Bike Social Ride – every other week at 1 p.m. on alternate Sundays from Ladies’ MTB ride).
•Dads’ Mountain Bike Ride – last Friday of the month at 6 p.m.
The calendar at pisgahcycling.org indicates the days and times of these rides and is updated with any changes to the times. The mountain bike rides change locations each time, so interested riders should also like Pisgah Cycling on Facebook to see announcements for those rides.
