The McDowell Trails Association invites you to experience the Old Fort Edition of the Rock n Roller, a bike ride - but not a race - that showcases the back roads in and around the charming town of Old Fort. This Old Fort Edition routes include country roads, a tiny bit of gravel, and plenty of scenic, rolling hills. Register for "The Hard Rock" with 65 road miles and 4,500 feet of climbing elevations. Not for you? Sign up for "The Soft Rock" to ride 21 miles and 1,350 feet of elevation.

This ride includes 13.5 miles of the Assault on Marion Race, a section of the larger Assault On Mt. Mitchell. This is an ideal time to begin training for the cycling race season! Volunteers will be on hand until all riders have returned.

The funds raised by this event benefit the non-profit organization McDowell Trails Association.
