Cycle North Carolina announces Murphy, NC, as host city for 2024 Mountains Ride

Come join us in Murphy, NC, where Cycle North Carolina started its inaugural Mountains to Coast Ride 25 years ago!

Cycle North Carolina is paying homage to the 25th anniversary of the Mountains to Coast Ride by hosting their annual Mountain Ride in the organization’s first-ever start town – Murphy. As the gateway to the Smoky Mountains, Murphy is one of NC’s most charming and peaceful, yet outrageously adventurous small towns.

Enjoy a mix of flat roads in the valley and climbing in the mountains during the day on some of the state’s most scenic routes, then spend the evening exploring the shops, restaurants, and breweries in Murphy’s quaint downtown area.

The Southern Appalachian Bicycle Association (SABA) is proud to be a part of the Cycle North Carolina Mountains Ride for 2024! Join us for a great weekend of cycling August 2-4, 2024!

In addition to weekly group road rides, we maintain the Jackrabbit Mountain Biking and Hiking Trail System in Hayesville, NC, the Piney Knob Trail System in Murphy, NC, and the Ramsey Bluff Trail System at Hanging Dog in Murphy, NC.

Road, Mountain, Gravel, Tri? We’re a group of like minded cyclists with a common goal to educate and promote bicycling in our region, regardless of the genre.

Piney Knob Trails

The PKT is constantly on our recommended list of trails because it is SO versatile. You can walk, trail run, mountain bike, even meditate by the small waterfall at the trailhead! There are several trails varying in difficulty levels, and again, you have the luxury of enjoying the peace and quiet of the mountain scenery while only being 10 minutes from Downtown Murphy.
