Blue Ridge Multi-Sport “FUNDO” Bike Tour
New Routes for 2023
While most of the country is sweltering in 90 degree temperatures in July, August and September, the Blue Ridge Mountain range offers a great relief. Cool temperatures, and lush green forests for hiking, smooth surface roads for cycling and mountain creeks and rivers for fishing and kayaking are in abundance.
Our guests have been asking for more time out of the saddle. So, to our Summer line-up, we have added a new 4-day bike vacation with morning and afternoon hikes in Linville Falls, Grandfather Mountain and Moses Cone Estate. An afternoon of kayaking on the South Branch of The New River or a flyfishing clinic in the adorable town of Todd is a “cool” Summer kick.
Be our guest in our beautiful, vibrant hometown of Blowing Rock, NC. We will start this adventure with a lovely dinner at Bistro Roco. The next morning, you start cycling south toward Linville Falls for a short or extreme hike. That’s your choice. Venture in and out of Blowing Rock for the next several days to neighboring small towns for culture, hikes, tubing, kayaking or fishing adventures. You will wrap up your cycling and Multi-sport activities in Blowing Rock before a shuttle back to Charlotte for anyone who has flown in for the Fundo.
This area is known as the “High Country”. With that said, you will not find very many flat areas to ride. This tour is great for riders wanting a workout on the hills and those wanting to take in the views while resting at an overlook. We would suggest this tour for active riders or advanced novice riders on an e-bike. You may bring your own e-bike or rent one of our Giant Explore3s or Gazelle 10Ts.
If you decide to stay a few more days, take in some great hikes and Waterfalls treks. Let us know, we can hook you up with our local buds at the Adventure Center. Or follow us to our next FUNDO tour in Lewisburg, WV starting on Aug 5th.
