Enjoy a pleasant ride through the rolling and flat expanse of eastern Catawba County. Visit historic Murrav’s Mill water driven gristmill on the National Register of Historic Sites and the Murray and Minges General Store. Three routes available – 15, 30 or 65 miles. All three rides follow the same route for the first 11 miles. A scenic and enjoyable ride for the entire family. Take advantage of the fully supported sag and rest stops, and don’t miss the lunch at the end of the ride that has become known as The Big Feed. The ride is sponsored by the Historical Association of Catawba County and the Catawba Valley Heritage Alliance (www.heritagealliance.org), a non-profit organization committed to preserving recreational resources and natural habitats. All proceeds will go to the Historical Association of Catawba County and the Catawba Valley Heritage Alliance.
