About the Tour de Cashiers

The Tour de Cashiers has a rich heritage. Nearly 25 years ago organizer Clark Moore gathered a small group of enthusiasts in front of the Cashiers Area Chamber of Commerce and set off on an 11-mile route across the area's scenic mountain byways. This annual ride has grown through the years to include multiple routes up to 100 miles and more than 300 riders from across the region under the direction of various community groups and volunteer organizers.

The mountainous route features stunning scenery and challenging ascents with total elevation gains of up to 10,500 feet. The Century 100-mile and the Metric 50-mile rides include long climbs and fast descents. The Quarter Century 25-mile route is a great introduction to cycling along the Blue Ridge. All three routes provide challenge and inspiration for those wanting to test their conditioning on an all-day supported ride.

Pisgah Productions of Asheville presents this annual tradition in 2016 with the support of community volunteers including local emergency fire departments, rescue squads and other law enforcement agencies.

In addition to the exhilarating experience of this mountain adventure, participants receive a commemorative tee shirt and a post-ride meal. Shower facilities are also available at the Cashiers Glenville Recreation Center.
