The Ride

The Hunter Subaru WNC Flyer will start and finish at  Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC.  What better way to spend the day than with a Bike Ride, Blue Grass, BBQ and a complimentary first beer!

All ride options 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.


The 2018 WNC Flyer offers four rolling routes through the beautiful hills of Western North Carolina

Full Century – 100 miles, 4,595′ of climb (green arrows) – 8:00 AM Start Time

Metric Century – 63 miles, 2,436′ of climb (orange arrows) – 8:15 AM Start Time

Half Century – 54 miles, 1,792′ of climb (yellow arrows) – 8:30 AM Start Time

Half Mertic – 33 miles, 1,250′ of climb (blue arrows) – 8:45 AM Start Time
