Winter bike league launches in Asheville

Written by 

The Asheville Winter Bike League has kicked off its 2017-2018 season, with structured group rides offered weekly starting at 10 a.m. every Saturday through Jan. 28.

Participants in these road routes will split up into A, B and C groups so that riders of various skill levels can participate. According to the website, the rides “are not designed to drop riders, but neither do we coddle the masses. The goal is to ride at a smooth and steady tempo, not too fast or too slow, avoiding rapid accelerations and decelerations, for the entirety of the ride.” A support vehicle will accompany all rides.

Participation is free, but riders are asked to donate a few dollars to the support drivers for each outing, with donations accepted at sign-up. Routes will begin at various places in Buncombe and Transylvania Counties, with the next one slated for Saturday, Dec. 2, at Carmichael Training Systems in Brevard.
