Bike of the Irish is AoB’s annual spring ride, featuring hundreds of green-bedecked riders and routes that showcase the best of Asheville’s bike infrastructure and greenways. AoB community rides are free and open to the public. We do ask that participants consider supporting our work and events by either activating their AoB membership and/or making a donation.

3 Routes to Choose From

There are 3 routes from which to choose! Gather at Wedge at 1:00PM. All rides roll out at 1:30PM. Here are your ride options:

  • Flat Route (2.5 miles): a flat tour of the River Arts District and French Broad Greenway
  • Little Less Route (5.1 miles): rolls through River Arts District, climbs Clingman, tours Coxe Ave before heading back to Wedge at Foundation.
  • *Ride More Beaucatcher Route (9.8 miles): rolls through River Arts District, climbs Clingman, tours Coxe Ave, and climbs to the top of Windswept before traversing Beaucatcher Greenway. Beaucatcher Greenway in an unimproved natural surface gravel road. *This route includes a natural service unimproved section of greenway. Participants can expect mountain bike conditions on this section of the ride. Participants can always opt to hike a bike this section, too. The views are beautiful but the rail is an unimproved natural condition.
