Discover alluring Asheville, from the unique perspective of your handlebars. Experience Asheville, North Carolina, Lonely Planet’s top U.S. travel destination for 2017. Your ride begins in downtown Asheville at Wicked Weed Brewing's Funkatorium, rolls out of downtown, and quickly moves along well-marked winding roads out into pastoral countryside and up to mountain ridge vistas. At the end of the ride, as you descend from the Blue Ridge Parkway into the heart of town, you will be afforded a spectacular cityscape view and greeted by fellow riders and families back at Wicked Weed Brewing's Funkatorium; where you can enjoy the music, vendors, massage therapists, and of course– food and beer!
