Tour de Cashiers

Apr 29, 2017

The Tour de Cashiers has a rich heritage. More than 20 years ago organizer Clark Moore gathered a small group of enthusiasts in front of the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce and set off on an 11-mile route across the area's scenic mountain byways. This annual ride has grown through the years to include multiple routes up to 100 miles and more than 300 riders from across the region. The mountainous route features stunning scenery and challenging ascents with total elevation gains of up to 10,500 feet. The Century 100-mile and the Metric 50-mile rides include long climbs and fast descents. The Quarter Century 25-mile route is a great introduction to cycling along the Blue Ridge. All three routes provide challenge and inspiration for those wanting to test their conditioning on an all-day supported ride. In addition to the exhilarating experience of this mountain adventure, participants receive a post-ride meal. Shower facilities are also available.
