Full description
Join a fun-filled and informative bike ride around downtown Asheville. Start your ride in the heart of the up-and-coming South Slope amidst the breweries, art galleries, and restaurants that are making a name for this neighborhood. After putting the electric bikes to the test on a short ride up the slope, ride downtown past some of the unique local shops and businesses that make Asheville so different from any other city in the region.

Make the first stop at the amazing Basilica of St. Lawrence, a masterpiece of local architecture built by Rafael Guastavino, whose work is featured in Grand Central Station and the Biltmore Estate. Take the chance to go inside and explore the impressive structure, which features the largest unsupported dome in North America.

From there, ride down the quiet streets of the Historic Montford Neighborhood alongside some of the most beautiful grand old homes in Asheville. Then, take the peaceful Reed Creek and Glenn's Creek Greenways past UNC Asheville before starting the climb through North Asheville neighborhoods up to the historic Grove Park Inn. Enjoy the chance to walk through the Inn and get a magnificent view from the Sunset Terrace.

After heading back downtown, stop in Pack Square, where Asheville was originally founded. This is a perfect vantage point to learn about Asheville's history and its abundant art-deco architecture, the 2nd largest collection in the country. End the journey back at the 225 Coxe Avenue location where you started from.
