Asheville on Bikes – Bike of the Irish ’17 – Saturday, March 18

On Saturday, March 18th the 11th annual Bike of the Irish rolls through Asheville and you’re invited to participate.  The year the ride begins at Wedge at Foundation, Wedge Brewing Co’s new space located at 5 Foundry Rd, rolls through the River Arts District, into the downtown, and explores the Beaucatcher greenway  (in the rough) before returning to the Wedge for an after ride celebration around 3pm.

Bike of the Irish is Asheville on Bikes annual spring ride. Participants are encouraged to  decorate themselves and their bikes in green as they ride the city in celebration of spring and the expansion of Asheville’s greenway system.

The event is free and open to the public. Families are welcome to participate as well. Everyone is encouraged to review and / or pre-ride the route to make sure it’s appropriate for their skill level. The ride rolls through active city streets and an unimproved greenway so riders can expect a  stretch of natural rough service along the Beaucatcher greenway. Participants are welcome to walk his/her bikes along this portion of the ride. Beaucatcher is a greenway in the rough but it’s truly a delightful place to visit and well worth the effort.
