TuneUp Ride – Friday, October 29, 2021
TuneUp for the Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo with a relaxed, small-group ride with Brent & Jamie and some of their friends from the pro-peloton. Enjoy a gourmet lunch following the ride.
The TuneUp was created in 2016 because an event called The Binge shouldn’t just have just one ride! The TuneUp is a small, intimate ride held the day before the main event that allows participants to stretch their legs on some of the Bookwalters’ favorite roads and enjoy a gourmet lunch at one of their favorite restaurants. Jamie and Brent set an easy pace on the ride and put the focus on enjoying the food and fellowship. A few friends from the pro-peloton will join in for this party-paced excursion and lunch munching.
The 2021 TuneUp Ride is presented by Quility. Casey Watkins and the Quility Team will host the gourmet lunch at their location in Swannanoa (former home to Native Kitchen & Social Pub).
The TuneUp route will be approximately 25 miles and will include a scenic tour thru and around Black Mountain.
NEW for 2021 – The TuneUp Coffee Stop will be sponsored by the WNC Outdoor Collective featuring caffeinated beverages handcrafted by Cup of Jomo
Registration for the 2021 TuneUp is sold out.
