About the Event

The Waucheesi Bike Race is wickedly sweet and includes two racing distances: the Wily 88 and the Wondrous 63, crafted by Chris Joice.

Make no mistake, this race is just as challenging as it is beautiful. Cherohala Skyway, Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests provide all the goods—long climbs, fast descents, great forest roads, rowdy gravel, and amazing vistas. If you dare to try the 88-mile option, you’re looking at a stout 11,500+ feet of climbing, while the 63-mile course is no joke, with 8,800+ feet. Both routes include the Basin Gap and North River Road climbs, while the 88-mile course adds a spectacular climb to Farr Gap.

For those not interested in racing or biting off the longer distances, we have a 45-mile ride option. The 45-mile course offers a great tour of Cherokee National Forest and Bald River, while climbing 4,100 feet. Please note that this category is a ride only; prizes will not be given out for this distance.

Registration opens October 1, 2021 at 10am on BikeReg.
