The 17th Annual Hunter Subaru WNC Flyer has been cancelled.

We are very sorry to announce that the 2020 WNC Flyer has been cancelled. After the clear guidance from the governor of North Carolina and local public health officials, it is imperative that we cancel the WNC Flyer for 2020. This is sad and disappointing for us, but it is the right thing to do in the face of the global pandemic. 

Please read our blog post for more information and details on your registration options.

The 17th annual Hunter Subaru WNC Flyer will be held in the “Cycling Capital of the South”, Brevard, NC.  The start/finish will be at  Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC.  What better way to spend the day than with a Bike Ride, Bluegrass, BBQ and a complimentary first Brew!

Riders will have their choice of  a century, metric, half century, and half metric rides which wind through the valleys south of Asheville, NC. Although it is the least hilly ride in Western North Carolina, it has plenty of rolling hills to keep all riders interested. There is beautiful mountain scenery without the long mountain climbs. The Flyer is a ride for everyone from first time riders to experience riders.

This is a fully supported ride with five well-stocked rest stops and an after ride party, including BBQ/Veggie Lunch Option for an add-on of $5 for participants and $10 for guests of participants, a Bluegrass band, and beer (1st beer compliments of Oskar Blues).
