APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN ROLLERCOASTER

The rural roller-coaster roads around Boone are a ton of fun, and quite challenging. The climbs aren’t very long, but that means there’s not a lot of time for recovery on the descents, either. This is a great course for all-around riders. This is one of the 4 events in 2020 to have the elevated Super Gran route.

WESTERN CAROLINA’S COOLEST TOWN

In mid-summer, the High Country of North Carolina enjoys 80-degree temperatures while the surrounding East Coast temperatures hover in the high 90s. Early August is a prime time to be in Boone!

SUPPORTIVE FAMILY ATMOSPHERE

The laid back atmosphere of this western North Carolina college town is contagious. One of the smaller fields for a Gran Fondo National Series event, the Boone Gran Fondo has a supportive, family feel, particularly when we all gather for great local food, cold beer, and fantastic raffle prizes after a challenging and competitive ride.

SAFETY AND SUPPORT

Most cyclists can’t discover how great the riding is in Boone because long loops are difficult to self-support. But you can ride with confidence on the marked and marshaled course, supported by law enforcement, safety motos, mechanic and sag vehicles, and staffed feed stations.

BENEFITING 

The Watauga Pioneers Mountain Bike Team will be manning our aid stations. To help support them we are accepting donations which will go directly to the team, which currently has 29 student athletes ranging from 6th through 11th grades, and 16 volunteer coaches.

The team is part of NICA - National Interscholastic Cycling Association and is affiliated with the North Carolina State League of NICA.
