CYCLING CAPITAL OF THE SOUTH
After competing in the Pisgah Mountain Bike Stage Race, Giant rider and mountain bike phenom Adam Craig said, “I’m going to have to say Pisgah is definitely one of the top three places in the universe that I’ve ever ridden — and maybe the very best one.”
Road cycling legend George Hincapie routinely uses the roads of Transylvania County to train for his pro season, which will include his record 17th Tour de France appearance this year.
Combine that with a cycling friendly vibe and you can quickly begin to understand why our little corner of the universe has earned the name “Cycling Capital of the South.” With over 300 miles of single track between Pisgah and DuPont, hundreds of additional miles in fire roads, and nearly endless road cycling options, there’s enough variety here for a lifetime of discovery. You’re guaranteed a good time whether you’re a knobby tire aficionado or a road warrior.
