The 15th Annual "Mountains to Coast" ride will be held on Sept 28th - Oct 5th, 2013.  This year's route will go from Spruce Pine to Atlantic Beach, with overnight stops in Morganton, Troutman, Asheboro, Holly Springs, Goldsboro and New Bern along the way.

But between Holly Springs and Goldsboro, this year's route will travel through Johnston County on Thursday, October 3rd.  The Johnston County Visitors Bureau has worked with Cycle NC to create a fun stop at a local Smithfield farm and a lunch break at Howell Woods, east of Four Oaks.

At Howell Woods, riders will be offered lunch, local food samples and entertainment.  Cyclists enjoy each and every stop and are on the lookout for future trips for cycling or just to visit again.

We were an overnight host for this event about five years ago and we hope to do the same again in the near's quite a site to welcome around 1,000 bike riders to the community and a whole lot of fun too!

All registration fees will increase up to $50 after August 21. Online registration will close Friday, September 20.
