Cycling for the Coast
Fort Macon State Park
Atlantic Beach, NC
Celebrate National Estuaries Day with a ride along beautiful Bogue Banks. The goal of the ride is to raise awareness for North Carolina’s coastal estuaries and beaches. Funds raised will benefit the federation’s restoration and protection projects. Register by 4 p.m. on September 14 to get a t-shirt at the event. Registration on September 22 is allowed for no additional charge, but you will not get a t-shirt that day - shirts may be mailed to you later.
Our annual ride is great for all ages and biking levels, offering 20K, 40K and 80K options. Start training now!
The ride will begin and end at Fort Macon State Park, at the eastern tip of Bogue Banks. Riders will leave in waves, beginning at 8 a.m. with the 80K group; the 40K and 20K riders will leave a little later, biking towards Atlantic Beach and turning around at specified points on the island. On-route volunteers will help with safety issues and mechanical breakdowns. There will be food and water stops along the way.
The Bicycle Gallery will be set up at the start to help with any last-minute bike mainteneance or needs; they will also help on the course with any safety or maintenance issues.
