Join us August 25 for the third annual Cowbelle Classic! 

The Cowbelle Classic is a women's only cycling event hosted by the Boone Area Cyclists. Women of all abilities are invited to ride in a non-competitive social environment on the beautiful country roads of Sugar Grove, NC. By providing mentoring for new riders, we are expanding the community of women cyclists in our region. Join us for our third year! 

Don't forget to read the fine print:

This year's ride is again only $30 if you register by June 30. After June 30, registration is $40

If you register after August 1, we'll try to have a t-shirt for you, but we can't guarantee it, so sign up early! Registration closes on August 15 or whenever the ride is full. 

Unfortunately, we cannot give refunds for any reason, so if you can't make it, please consider your registration fee a donation to the Cowbelle Classic and the Boone Area Cyclists (a 501c3 nonprofit) for the work we do promoting cycling in the High Country. No refunds if the ride is canceled due to weather, etc. 

No personal transfers. If you can't ride, please let us know so we can fit in someone from the waiting list. By doing this, you can help us meet our goal of getting lots of women riding. It also helps us know who is actually riding, which is important for safety reasons. 

Registrants must be 16 years or older in order to ride. Anyone under 18 must have the written permission of a parent or guardian. 

No personal SAG vehicles are allowed. We will provide SAG and aid stations. 

Some of the routes have specific cutoff times. See cowbelleclassicride.com for more information. SAG, aid stations, and lunch will close at 3 pm for all routes. Any riders remaining on the course at this time must be picked up by a SAG vehicle. BAC and the Cowbelle Classic assume no responsibility or liability for anyone who refuses to ride the final sweep vehicle.
