Thousand-plus bicyclists headed our way!

ORIENTAL – The CycleNC 2023 Coastal Ride returns April 28, 29 & 30. Organizers expect approximately 1,400 cyclists, who will be camping on lawns and parks, with some even bedding down in local accommodations. Look for them almost everywhere as they embark each day on rides throughout the county. Their daily excursions range from 15 to 100 miles. This year’s event was originally scheduled for 2020. Motorists! Please be patient. Give our friendly visitors plenty of leeway on area roads.
