Touring Tuesday - Cycle North Carolina

Bicycle and other whirligigs in Wilson, North Carolina
As a bicycle shop, we get a lot of material in the mail advertising upcoming bicycle rides. One that came recently was for the Cycle North Carolina Mountains to Coast Ride. It is a 7-day ride that starts in the Blue Ridge Mountains and ends at the Atlantic Ocean. Average distance is around 60 miles per day. In addition to the riding, there will be numerous attractions along the way, such as the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park in Wilson. Still photos just don't do whirligigs justice - See them in action on YouTube.

The 2017 Mountains to Coast ride takes place September 30 Through October 7. While that is a ways off, you can save $100 if you register by May 4. You can register online at Cycle North Carolina. Here's an 8 and a half minute video that talks about the towns on the 2017 route:
