Rhythm and Blues Concert and Bike Corral in Hendersonville

Thursday, September 17 will be the next Rhythm & Brews Concert and Bike Corral in Hendersonville. Please ride your bike to the event and park it at the corral that will be on Third Avenue. The corral will be setup at about 5:00 and it will be open until 9:00 pm or until the last cyclist goes home. You can be assured that your bike will be safe.

Let’s show Hendersonville how strong the cycling culture really is.  And thanks to the members of the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club for helping out!

Henderonville Awarded Grant by NCDOT

 NCDOT Awards 2015 Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grants: Hendersonville is one of 10 municipalities from across the state slated to receive assistance with bicycle planning, thanks to grants awarded this month by the N.C. Department of Transportation.   Plans funded are not for one specific project, but represent a comprehensive strategy for expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities within a given municipality. These plans address facilities, programs, services and regulations that encourage safe walking and bicycling.  

 

And please be sure to thank your Blue Ridge Bicycle Club President, Joe Sanders for his help in making this happen.  He worked closely with the City of Hendersonville to get this grant written and presented on time

 Healthy Lifestyles

 

The Blue Ridge Bicycle Club is considering developing a “Healthy Lifestyles” bicycle ride program using the exercise guidelines mentioned in the document found in this link:  Healthy Lifestyles Document. We are not sure if this will be part of an existing ride program or a new program.  We would like input from anyone interested in participating in these rides to help structure the program.

 

Please contact Charlie Clogston if you have an interest in this type of ride with any suggestions you might have.  His email is treasurer@blueridgebicycleclub.org.
