Asheville Mini-Cogal

Asheville Mini-Cogal

by / / 7 posts

Gaswepass is coming to Asheville to check it out and put in some kilometers at the end of March. We thought it would be a great idea to invite some of our fellow Velominati to join us on a ride around the wilds of Western North Carolina.  This ride is going to be hilly, but we are avoiding the big mountains in favor of rolling terrain that is more conducive to building camaraderie among our fellow Velominati.  In addition to being home to some of the finest cycling in the country, Asheville has also been named Beer City USA for three years running thanks to our burgeoning craft-brew scene… throw in some local BBQ and you know what the post-ride recovery meal will be like at my place!

Ride Classification: Rule V, Casually Deliberate.  There are numerous bail out points on this route, but if you aren’t familiar with the area your chances of getting lost or finding yourself on a killer climb are high.

  1. so, so in.

  2. Oh yeah, just saw that this was posted… Can’t wait! Hope we can get a few others to come out and join us.

  3. Come see the views…

  4. took that from my back porch, where we will be drinking some local beer and eating classic Carolina BBQ after the Asheville Mini-Cogal.

  5. Four days from the Asheville mini-cogal! Weather is looking good… sunny and 22 C for a high. Temperature at the start will be a bit cooler, probably 12 C, but it is going to be great day for a 100k ride with fellow Velominatus. Ride will start at 10am from the REI in Asheville. Look for the V-kit! See you there.

  6. Totally awesome. a day of tan lines, terrain and tearing it up. Nice job @Anjin-san!

    Missed you before our chance to meet. Sure it was a FAN-tas-tic ride and hope that it bears repeating. Will keep in touch to ride Asheville another day.
