 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.

 

 

The Pumpkin Pedaller

 
 Pumpkin-Pedaller is an annual costumed community ride through Asheville on Saturday, Nov. 1st.
 
The ride gathers at Asheville City Hall at 2:30, rolls at 3pm, and concludes at the Wedge Brewery at 5pm

Asheville on Bikes is currently seeking volunteers for the event. If people are interested they can sign up via Pumpkin Pedaller Volunteer Form.
 

Roadside Pullout Poll

  
With all the hills in WNC, sometimes we cyclists hold up cars trying to pass on narrow winding roads. Joe had a conversation with the NCDOT District Engineer for District 14 and he asked the following question: “If there were pullouts for cyclists to use to let cars pass, would the cyclists use them?
 

The Blue Ridge Bike Club is a strong advocacy group for all things benefiting cycling. Every members vote counts. Polls are available to members only and the system will enforce one vote per member.
 
Thank You for Your Participation!
