Each stage of the event will begin and end in the vibrant downtown of Asheville. Asheville is a short riding away from Mount Mitchell, the highest peaks east of the Mississippi River and wind through the scenic beauty of the French Broad River Valley. The event will conclude with an individual time trial on the final day.
Pro cyclists have long been drawn to the Asheville area’s challenging climbs and quiet country roads. To create a special event for you, Haute Route Asheville secured a rare permit for the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as an opportunity to ride through the famed Biltmore Estate, the largest privately owned house in the USA. The Original course features a total of 300km and 6,500M+ of climbing over a combination or short sharp ascents and longer European style climbs. The new Compact course delivers all the services and support of an Haute Route experience to riders looking to ride fewer kilometers. In the afternoons and evenings, explore the city’s craft breweries, award-winning restaurants, and thriving arts district.
A culinary, cultural, and outdoor sports hub, Asheville is the perfect destination for the entire family.
