Welcome to the 5th Annual Blue Ridge Breakaway Bike Ride. It is hard to believe this is our fifth year of the ride. Welcome back to our returning riders and our new participants. This year’s ride will be even better and more exciting. We have something for everyone from beginning riders to those looking for a challenge. We still have four routes this year,

The Rabbit 25.8 miles
The Panther - 50.8 miles
The Trout - 75 miles
and The Hawk - 105.7 miles.

The Trout and the Hawk will both spend time on the ever beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway. You heard correct; two routes will wind along the parkway! With the outstanding beauty of the parkway, the customer service provided by our volunteers, the food selection at the various rest stops and unflappable motorcycle support from beginning to end, there is no doubt this will become your favorite ride. Please join us for a day of fitness and fun!
