Elizabeth City is proud to present the 26th Annual TarWheel Cycling Event! Explore our scenic, flat, countryside course as you travel through the beautiful northeastern NC counties of Pasquotank, Perquimans and Chowan. You have the option of 33-, 62-, or 100-mile rides, and/or shorter 1-mile to 5-mile Fun Rides. The rides start on the waterfront in downtown Elizabeth City. You'll cycle by multiple waterfront areas and the majestic countryside, passing farmlands, pastures, barns, and historic homes. You'll pedal by horses, cows, birds, turtles and other wildlife. Our countryside skylines are amazing! Some of you will pedal through the quaint little towns of Hertford and Edenton.
