More than 200 riders are expected to participate in the 19th anniversary of the annual Tour de Cashiers on April 30. The tour has grown to three routes, ranging from 25 to 100 miles.
Once again, this year the tour will partner with a similar ride in Walhalla, S.C., “Issaqueena’s Last Ride.” The combination of these two rides form the Blue Ridge Double. The events will be on consecutive weekends.
All rides for the Tour de Cashiers start at the Village Green in Cashiers on Saturday morning April 30 at 9 a.m. The early-registration cost is $40, or $35 for riders who sign up for the Double. The entry fee includes a T-shirt, light breakfast and a hearty post-ride lunch, as well as on-road support and well-stocked rest stops. www.TourdeCashiers.com.
