Burnsville Metric @ Burnsville Town Center
Apr 28 all-day
Burnsville Metric @ Burnsville Town Center | Burnsville | North Carolina | United States

Held annually on the last Saturday in April, the Burnsville Metric is a great way to start off your cycling season. It is casual but well-supported and comprises some of the flattest, most scenic roads in Yancey and Mitchell counties.

There is still a small portion of road construction to be aware of just after the third rest stop. The affected section of US-19E is between NC-80 North & NC-80 South, and impacts less than 2 miles of the Metric route. Please be extra cautious in this area. We will have extra signage there to increase driver awareness.

Details

  • 60.7 miles; 3 well-supplied rest stops & roving SAG support
  • New this year: a 43 mile option with one rest stop and our ever-helpful SAG support. Ham radio communication provided by the Mayland Amateur Radio Club (MARC)
  • REGISTRATION/PACKET PICK-UP at Burnsville Town Center 7:15am – 8:45am
  • Ride begins promptly at 9am

Helmets are required. All riders must sign the waiver; riders under 18 must have a parent co-sign the waiver. All riders must obey rules of the road – we are sharing these roads with motorists.

About The New Chamber Website

The new Chamber website was built by Roan Mitchell, a local partnership between David Biddix and Chanse Simpson. Chanse designed and created the webpages and took 90 percent of the photos on the site. David built the directories, calendars, and individual member profiles as well as handing webmaster duties and all technical aspects of transitioning to the new site. The Chamber logo of Otway Burns with the wind at his back was created by Chad Fox. The drone photos of Burnsville Town Square and Mount Mitchell were taken by Sam Dean. Contributing photographers to the website include Britt Kaufmann and Denise Cook. Roan Mitchell extends a very special thanks to Chamber Director Ginger Johnson, Member Services Coordinator Jaime Duvall and Chamber Board Members, and a heartfelt appreciation to all the people of Burnsville & Yancey County who helped us create this website. Thank you.
