Asheville On Bikes

Oct 31 | Pumpkin Pedaller


Join us for a costumed community ride that is FREE to all. Enjoy music, food, and camaraderie. Plus, we’ll be giving away prizes to those with the most ghoulish costumes!

Asheville on Bikes presents the ninth annual Pumpkin Pedaller on Saturday, Oct. 31st. The annual costumed community ride gathers in front of City Hall at 2:30pm, and rolls forward at 3:00pm on Halloween. The nine mile ride meanders through North Asheville, climbs Sunset Trail, and circles Montford before rolling back into town to New Mountain for a Halloween bike festival.

The Pumpkin Pedaller is the hallmark of the Asheville Halloween experience. And, AoB is set to deliver again, this year. Each year, the ride attracts more and more participants. We’re responding by hosting a bike festival at New Mountain following the ride.

We’ll have music by Speed Square, food trucks, Michael Mooney’s bike jousting, a costume contest, and a chance to win an Industry Nine wheel set. New Belgium will also donate portion of their beer sales to Asheville on Bikes. 

The Pumpkin Pedaller is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to RSVP at AoB’s event page, ride in costume and review the route prior to the ride.
