From The Riders:
“The route and the farms. It’s fun to ride an event that’s not a race. I had the opportunity to talk with lots of friends and meet new people as we rode.” — Black Mountain 2013
“The route. It was excellent – magnificent views/countryside! Great combination of rolling hills and hard climbs. I was glad to have the biggest hill at the end with the option of NOT doing it. (but I did it anyway)” — Sandy Mush 2013
“Ambassador bicyclists were very friendly and helpful” — Black Mountain 2013
“Location, yoga, Loved Loved the swag bag!! Would love to have option to buy more” — Black Mountain 2012
“Very helpful [volunteers], you could tell they enjoyed what they were doing.” — Sandy Mush 2013
“I liked the community feel…it was a hard ride, but it was non-competitive, and the folks who were riding were just as interested in the farms as the ride. I liked that.” — Black Mountain 2013
“The farm visits were awesome! So nice to see farms that I would not have known were there.” — Black Mountain 2013
“I loved the casual, friendly air….” — Sandy Mush 2013
“The overall atmosphere was positive, fun and supportive. I loved having so many female cyclists. met lots of great people.” — Black Mountain 2013
“Route was excellent and the post ride meal was of very high quality. Really enjoyed the farm rest stops.” — Black Mountain 2012
“Frankly, CTF has spoiled me. Now that I’ve ridden in some other “organized” rides, I realize how exceptional it is to have had so many volunteers directing the riders, so many emergency vehicles driving by…and every one of them, without exception, friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic.” — Black Mountain 2013
“There’s too many [good things] to list – everyone involved was so happy and welcoming, it was great!” — Sandy Mush 2013
“Rest stops were well supported and stocked with food and drink. Farm stops were very interesting and the owners were enthusiastic and you could tell they were glad we were there… Really neat concept.” — Black Mountain 2013
“The route was a true gem. Really showcased the beauty of the Black Mountain area. A challenging route, but not a sufferfest. Would not touch the route path. One of the best “charity” ride routes I’ve ever done.” — Black Mountain 2012
“Awesome on-course presence of support vehicles for help and safety” — Sandy Mush 2013
