The Summer Cycle is AoB’s annual summer social ride. This year, we’re changing up the program, route, and rolling in a new direction. Come join us and let us know what you think.


Summer Cycle Details:

2:30pm – Ride gathers at Second Gear

5:00pm – Ride culminates at Kolo Bike Park

8:00pm – Parting is such sweet sorrow

The route is 13.7 miles and includes 683 ft of climbing.  The ride includes wayfinding markers and pedal patrol. We’ve added a family specific pedal patrol so that families can ride safely in a group with support from AoB volunteers.

We need plenty of volunteers for the Summer Cycle, so review the volunteers options and pick a time and place that works for you. Sign up to volunteer.


The Summer Cycle gathers at Second Gear (444 Haywood Rd, 28806) in West Asheville and rolls through a variety of neighborhood streets and greenways, before culminating at Kolo Bike Park (1 Resort Dr, 28806) on the Crowne Plaza Campus.
