Tour de Cashiers
For all you cycling enthusiasts that watch for the thrilling Tour de Cashiers, you’ll want to know that this year’s tour will commence at the Village Green Commons on Frank Allen Road on May 3rd, 2014 at 9 in the morning.
Like they have all these years, the organizers are offering the Full Century re-route of a 100 miles and the Metric route that is a 50 mile ride. Both of these routes offer the challenge that experienced cyclists love to take on such as hard climbs and swift descents. Amateurs can try their hand at the Quarter Century route that covers 25 miles over the Blue Ridge. And, for your information, the organizers have eliminated the difficult Charley Creek ascents.
The beginning of May is a great time to cycle along the routes. The mornings are refreshing cool and the afternoons are pleasantly warm. Hundreds of wild flowers bloom everywhere making the routes totally picturesque and a delight to experience.
The Tour de Cashiers was initiated for the first time by Clark Moore more than 20 years ago from the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce. The first ride had a small group of die-hard cycling fans that took a route that went on for 11 miles over mountainous paths. Since then it has grown to the point where it now has more than 300 participants and three routes.
