The Blue Ridge Brutal 100
ride tours two northwest North Carolina counties: Ashe and Alleghany and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Beginning and ending at the foot of Mount Jefferson in West Jefferson, North Carolina, the ride offers 100 miles of varied and challenging terrain.
The Ashe Civic Center is pleased to sponsor the Blue Ridge Brutal and welcomes riders to the region to enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. The Brutal celebrated its 20th year in 2009 and acknowledges the many volunteers and riders over the years. The Brutal was started as a fundraiser for the Ashe Civic Center in 1990 and continues to use the proceeds to support community and school arts programming to benefit the surrounding area.
The Blue Ridge Brutal features three ride options: 50 mile, 75 mile and 100 mile. The ride is fully supported by SAG wagons, rest stops, mussette stops, Ham radio communication and fire and rescue squad. A hot meal, t-shirt and chip timing is included.
Thank you for your continued support of this ride and the Ashe Civic Center.
