NC Senior Games Bicycle Time-Trials, 2016
Ten Ashe-Villains went to the NC Senior Games cycle time-trials on October 2nd, and what a day they had. The venue for the three events, one-mile, 5k and 10k was, as it is every year, at the State Trooper Training Center in Raleigh. It has a wonderful one and a half mile circuit that includes hills and curves, and is more like a road than a track. It is also, of course, traffic free. The weather was near perfect, cool and a little misty at first, but soon clearing to warm, partly cloudy conditions. There were over 90 competitors, most of them in 2 or 3 of the races. See the picture and read the whole story!

It serves as a gateway to access the many bicycle and pedestrian resources across the State. The website is organized by the five pillars, safety, health, economy, mobility, and environment. Within each pillar portal is a summary of existing conditions, recommendations, action steps, and other resources. The website also includes a link to the new state bike route map application site (ncbikeways.com) along with a listing of bicycle/pedestrian advocacy groups.
