August 10-12th, 2012 in Lake Norman State Park. Troutman, NC
A southern bike festival. Bringing together folks from all over that enjoy pedaling all different kinds of two wheels.
Take a weekend out of your busy summer to relax, ride and chill with fellow bicycle lovers in the Lake Norman, North Carolina area. Experience camping with your new friends, new 2013 bike demos, open house at the Mountain Bike Museum (MOMBAT), bike rides of all types, and a great movie night at the campground on Saturday night.
Where? http://www.tarheeltrailblazers.com/TrailMaps/LNSP.pdf Home of 22 miles of single track and the center of hundreds of gorgeous rolling miles of road riding.
Why? There aren’t enough non-race cycling events in the southeast. We wanted to bring together some of the best legs and minds the south has to offer, bring them around a camp fire, on a trail and to showcase southern cycling.
