Registration opens on April 25, 2018.
Join us for a relaxed Gran Fondo ride, studded with racing on timed segments of tough climbs that provide an epic challenge to all.
Three routes of varying length traverse some of the most beautiful roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina: 7,400 ft of climbing in 83 miles, 5,500 ft in 62 miles, or 2,500 ft in 29 miles.
This is an unusual opportunity to ride alongside female and male pro cyclists as they celebrate the end of their season racing all over the world and the country. Our accessible pros ride all three routes, and along with Brent, they are inspired by cyclists of all backgrounds and abilities.
The Binge is a party on two-wheels studded with races on timed segments. Party a little, race a little…get it?
The Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo was founded by Brent and Jamie Bookwalter.
