Asheville on Bikes is rolling urban cycling forward in May, and we need you to assist with the pedalling festivities. In the eleven years that we’ve been riding the city, this May is our most ambitious outreach to date, with several events going on during Strive Not to Drive week. Are you ready to help us roll forward? Below is a list of events with links to our volunteer forms. Please review the list and pick the event that works best for you.

Friday, May 19th: Roll Outta Work
Is there a better way to celebrate the end of the week than riding a bike? AoB doesn’t think so and we’re excited to launch our newest addition to our community rides as part of Strive Not to Drive Week. This ride gathers at Pack’s Park and meanders its way to New Belgium Brewing. We need both rolling and posted pedal patrol volunteers along the route to help support safe riding.

5:30pm – Gather at Pack’s Park
6:00pm – Pedal the Route
