Pumpkin Pedaller

Get those costumes ready: the 12th Annual Pumpkin Pedaller is coming October 26th, 2019

The 2019 Pumpkin Pedaller is set for Saturday, Oct 26th at New Belgium Brewing. Join hundreds of costumed riders and fill the streets and greenways of Asheville’s downtown and neighborhoods. This year, we have three route options for all ages and levels of riders, plus a brand new addition: Motion Makers will be hosting a bike demo of Yuba Electric Cargo Bicycles. It’s FREE, so come on out!

Volunteer for route marking, pedal patrol, and more!

Our incredible volunteers are the secret sauce to all of our AoB community rides. For Pumpkin Pedaller, we have lots of fun roles to choose from. Just fill out and submit this easy form to sign up for a volunteer position.
