The Emerald Isle Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee will host its 2nd annual Bike the Banks-Crystal Coast Lighthouse Century on Saturday, May 7, as part of the committee's ongoing effort to promote the area as a one of the top bicycle-riding destinations along the North Carolina coast.
The event will feature three rides of varying length, all beginning at 8 am at the Emerald Isle Community Center. Cyclists can choose from the "10-mile Fun Run" along the bicycle and pedestrian path in Emerald Isle; the "Fort Macon 50-miler" a roundtrip ride to Fort Macon along Highway 58; or the "Crystal Coast Century", a 100-mile roundtrip to Cape Lookout.
Cyclists should bring their own bikes or plan on renting one. The event is not a race. Cyclists can ride at their own pace. The course will remain open until 3 pm, after which SAG vehicles will no longer be available. Rest stops will close one hour prior to course closure.
Registration will be available on the day of the event, though pre-registration is encouraged.
Hope to see you on Saturday in Emerald Isle!
