Tour de Cashiers rolls on April 30

Written by 

More than 200 riders are expected to participate in the 19th anniversary of the annual Tour de Cashiers on April 30. The tour has grown to three routes, ranging from 25 to 100 miles.

Once again, this year the tour will partner with a similar ride in Walhalla, S.C., “Issaqueena’s Last Ride.” The combination of these two rides form the Blue Ridge Double. The events will be on consecutive weekends.

All rides for the Tour de Cashiers start at the Village Green in Cashiers on Saturday morning April 30 at 9 a.m.  The early-registration cost is $40, or $35 for riders who sign up for the Double. The entry fee includes a T-shirt, light breakfast and a hearty post-ride lunch, as well as on-road support and well-stocked rest stops.  www.TourdeCashiers.com.

Volunteers, too, are needed to man rest stops, ride support vehicles along the routes, assist with registration, and so on. 828.421.2658 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
