it's a Road Charity Ride for local MTB Trail Project !
Ride with Big George Hincapie - Nov 20 2011 10:00AM
Plans are being made for a new park in downtown Greenville that will be home to mountain bike trails and a pump track. On Sunday, November 20, come join Big George Hincapie for a benefit bike ride that will raise money for this new park. The park will also include a memorial trail for Jeff Papenfus, an avid mountain biker and adventure racer who passed away suddenly in July. The road ride will begin at Hincapie Sportswear at 10am, and include 30 and 56 mile ride options. Big George Hincapie will join us for the longer ride. A silent auction will also be held to raise additional money. A $25 donation gets you a ride with George, lunch, beverages (BEER!) and post-ride activities. If you can't make the ride, your donation still gets you lunch and fun times.

Route Info: We will be heading north from Hincapie, out Old Buncombe, take the frontage road in front of Walmart and weave our way out to North Greenville University. From there we will head up and over Callahan Mtn/Grunt Hill (counter-clockwise loop), left on Dividing Waters Road, and then work our way back towards town. Cue Sheets will be provided. If you want to skip Callahan, just turn around at the end of Tigerville Road. We will have roaming tech support and nutritional support if needed.
