Register Now for The 2017 Assaults
The Southeast’s Premiere Cycling Event, May 15, 2017
A bucket list ride for cyclists, The Assaults is one of the most intense, premier cycling experiences in the Southeast. It draws a group of nearly 900 cyclists from around the world each year. The Assault on Mt. Mitchell is a 102.7-mile self-paced ride from Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina, along the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, to the summit at Mt. Mitchell State Park in North Carolina —a total vertical ascent of more than 10,000 feet, reaching the highest point east of the Mississippi.
The Assault on Marion is a 74.2-mile self-paced ride starting from Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium and ending at Tom Johnson Rally Park Pavilion in Marion, NC. The Assault on Marion began to allow more cyclists to participate with those riding to Mt. Mitchell. Although it does not include the 28-mile trek to the top of the mountain, this event is just as enjoyable and engaging with rolling hills, multiple climbs, and compelling North Carolina scenery.
“The Assaults is one of the highlights of my cycling season.”
