Greenway Classic Mountain Bike Adventure @ Anne Springs Close Greenway- FIELD TRIAL BARN
Jun 7 @ 4:00 pm – Jun 9 @ 10:45 am

Join our pals at Anne Springs Close Green-way this June for our first-ever Green-way Classic Mountain Bike Adventure! Compete for first place in individual events AND/OR go for the ultimate challenge and test of grit and compete for title of ULTIMATE CLASSIC CHAMPION (UCC).

They will have your typical categories for each event, and events can be won individually, the UCC winners (open male, open female, master’s 40+) are the people who do best over the course of the weekend in all events.


The weekend kicks off Friday evening with a twilight short track, with categories ranging from junior to expert. The overall winner of this event (of those competing for the UCC title) will get two minutes knocked off their Saturday event time. Each person below that will get five less seconds until there is no time left.


On to the main event! Saturday morning will kick off with a grueling 50-miler with a twist. For the first time ever, competitors will be able to ride non-mountain bike trails at the Greenway. This means be prepared to rough it through horse trails (potentially carrying your bike at times), up stairs, and over bridges. There will be no pre-riding the course, and we will not reveal the course map until the Friday of the race. This is not for the faint of heart! Again, this event will have individual category winners but will also count toward UCC status.

On Saturday evening as we wrap up the racing and the band starts warming up (the amazing Todd Johnson and the Revolvers), there will be an opportunity to knock some seconds off your overall time through a variety of goofy mini-competitions. Every mini-competition will allow the top three finishers to knock off a few extra seconds on their overall time. This is a spectator sport and we strongly encourage cheering, heckling and commentary!

Food trucks, a cooling area (complete with a slip-n-slide, ice baths and outdoor showers), plus music, beer, cornhole and more will be available throughout the weekend. Camping will be available both Friday and Saturday night so bring your whole family and come prepared to tackle the Greenway Classic.


Enjoy a relaxing Sunday morning with coffee and donuts before taking off! All tents must be packed up by 11:00am.

Ice Creamery Social Ride @ Historic Downtown Concord Greenway
Jun 29 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

What’s better than kicking off a hot summer Saturday, than a bicycle ride with Family & Friends through portions of historic downtown Concord along shaded paved trails. Better yet, it’s only 4 miles in length, with a most rewarding ICE CREAM STOP mid-way! Interested, meet us in the lower parking lot at Les Myers Community Park, from there we’ll roll deep to earn those calories. No one says ICE CREAM can’t be had as lunch or before…especially from Cabarrus Creamery! Heck, there’s Red Hill Brewery just above it for those lactose intolerant folk or adults needing their version of a cool & refreshing reward.

**Kids can be in tow &/or in a pack, but suggested IF THEIR PEDDLING that they will be able to maintain a slow group pace, stop safely and peddle efficiently involving the various city oriented distractions/environment.**
