im wanting to find some events in sc (upstate) and anywhere in nc
Nothing yet, I'm about halfway between you and the beach. I'd really like to find a venue that could combine a show & a gravity bike race.
Would be willing to work as a volunteer for such an event. If you can find a couple of more nut cases to help perhaps someone can get something started.
me and joe thought about starting are own event and we would ride on the swamp rabit trail
bump up to top :mrgreen:
I will be in Charleston in late October for a wedding. Probably not much time for bikes, but let me know if there is something I should be sure to see- Bikes or otherwise.
Hey, I'm in MInt Hill, NC, near Charlotte. Don't know of any events in our area, but I'd be happy to meet somewhere and cruise a little. Just finished my first build, had a blast this Spring cruising the greenway trails around Charlotte.
nope but im still tryin to find one.
September 17th, Reidsville, NC Vintage and custom show and swap. It's a pretty big show. Mount Airy, NC Vintage and Kustom show and swap second year happens October 23rd. Last year pulled a lot of participants from Charlotte, Gastonia, and even SC and VA as well. Eden, NC show was in April so look for that next year.
Let me know if you need info. I host the Mount Airy show and I know the host and many participants of the others. I'm also working with someone else to host a show in Lincolnton, NC which is pretty close to Charlotte. I'm originally from Huntersville, so I know the Charlotte area.
Hey Mini, I just realized that you're in Greenville, SC. We actually had participants from there in the Mount Airy Bicycle Show last year. I believe it was a married couple that brought vintage Raleighs.
thnx but the reidsville bike event is a little too far out of my range btu thnx for the offer
Yeah you're down there. Maybe Gastonia will be close enough
I live really close to the Asheville, NC area myself. I've never looked into such things before.
I would think asheville would already have a show. They're really into bikes over there.
I've heard they have a naked bike race in downtown, but have never gone. (Nor do I want too) :shock:
I've heard of that race too. I was in Boone a couple months ago and I noticed quite a few fixies. I guess college fads are pretty much the same everywhere. But I used to see a ton of classic bikes on craigslist for the ashville/boone area
Charleston has a decent network of bike paths etc. There a 4 or 5 bike shops in the city with a couple of more scattered about the islands around it. And of course if you can squeeze in the time check out the Ravenel Bridge
Of course you can also eat yourself into a stupor there as well
