From humble beginnings, BSG has grown into the North Carolina High Country’s premier cycling event. Starting and finishing in historic Valle Crucis, home of the Mast General Store, BSG offers incredible scenic views, epic climbs, and some of the best cycling that North Carolina has to offer.
BSG showcases the mountain communities of Watauga and Ashe counties. The ride consists of two routes. A very challenging 95-mile route and a 45-mile route that is shorter in mileage but still big on the challenge. Both routes include epic area climbs, but the signature climb of BSG, Snake Mountain, awaits only the strongest riders who accept the challenge of our 95-mile route.
