8th Annual Tour de Lure

6 Apr 2013

The ride begins and ends at the Corpening Memorial YMCA in Marion. A 71 mile route through scenic farmland in McDowell county, climbs up Stone Mtn., passes through Chimney Rock and around beautiful Lake Lure before returning to McDowell County via the Assault on Mt. Mitchell route. Our ride boasts 5,900’ of ascent and is a perfect training ride for either of the “Assault on Mt. Mitchell” rides.

-Online registration/payment – Access our webpage complete with additional info including route map, elevation profile, and driving directions

-Additional Sag Stop added prior to Stone Mountain – Common request for some fuel/rest prior to the most grueling part of the course.

-Improved registration process – Those that choose to register on-site will be greeted upon arrival, directed to the appropriate area, with wait time kept to a minimum

-Vegetarian option offered for post-ride meal – Again, common request we’re more than happy to oblige.

-Entire facility will be open to all participants and their families for the duration of the ride/post-ride– We will also open our facility early to accommodate tri-athletes that would like to swim in our Olympic size pool prior to the ride.
