Blue Ridge Breakaway a success

Written by 

Olympic silver-medalist Lauren Tamayo from Asheville was among the 460 riders from 18 states who pedaled the scenic roadways, byways and Blue Ridge Parkway during Haywood County’s Blue Ridge Breakaway, Aug. 17.

The event featured rides of varied distances, from 24 to 105 miles, up and down the Appalachian Mountains.

The breakaway, in its fourth year, is sponsored by the Haywood Chamber of Commerce.
