Ride Distances

In 2019, North Carolina Outward Bound School (NCOBS) is hosting a brand new twelve mile fun ride and the annual half century bike ride in honor of Collier Lilly. The NCOBS Collier Lilly 12 Mile Ride, begins at the Wedge at Foundation, and flows primarily along the French Broad River. The route follows Amboy Road to Carrier Park and Hominy Park on various paved roads and greenways and off-road packed dirt greenways and side-roads. This route is for the casual cyclist that enjoys riding bikes for the joyful experience and is comfortable riding on paved and off-road dirt packed surfaces.

The 50 mile ride offers a beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain route, with 3,600 feet of climbing, that will start and end at the Wedge at Foundation in Asheville. In keeping with Outward Bound’s bedrock principles of “challenge and discovery,” the Collier Lilly Ride for NCOBS will take riders over challenging mountain passes and allow them to discover scenic roads for the first time. This exciting event is being held on Memorial Day Weekend.
