Outdoors 20th Annual Tour De Cashiers Ride for Health May 5

Highlands-Cashiers Hospital Foundation presents the 20th Annual Tour de Cashiers Ride for Health on Saturday, May 5th. Staged among the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, the tour consists of 3 exciting routes - 25, 62 and 100 miles. The routes take in spectacular vistas of springtime in the mountains along quiet mountain back roads. With rides ranging from moderate to strenuous climbs, beginners to experienced bicyclists are welcome. The event for some is a lifetime challenge and for the hardcore, a great training ride.

All rides for the Tour de Cashiers start at the Village Green on Saturday morning May 5, at 9 a.m. Early registration fee is $40 and $45 the day of the race.

The entry fee includes a t-shirt, light breakfast and a hearty post-ride lunch, as well as on-road support and well-stocked rest stops. All rider registration is through our website,

As in previous years, the Tour will be partnering with a similar ride in Walhalla, SC, “Issaqueena’s Last Ride.” The combination of these two rides called the Blue Ridge Double, has become popular. The events will be on consecutive weekends. Riders receive a $10 discount on the combined registration fees.

The Tour’s success depends on the support of individuals and businesses. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact The HCH Foundation office at (828) 526-1433. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Callie Calloway at (828) 526-1313.
