These rides are structured differently from our traditional group rides.  The Greenway Series will take place at different parks & greenways in western North Carolina.  We encourage adaptive riders of all ages to bring a friend or family member to join your ride in the park (Please have your guest bring their own bike, or plan to walk/run with you during your ride).  Catalyst will help fit you to one of our fleet adaptive bikes & give you instructions on how to safely ride.  You are then free to enjoy your ride.

Thanks to the generous support from New Belgium Brewing, this event is free to the community. Join us for a
day of adventure, inclusivity, and fun at Mills River Park!
