Unaka Mountains

A real local favorite! The Unaka 300 is one of the best rides regularly held by AIR.

It's a real treat of a route, with a few long climbs but plenty of descending ;)

This route features the best tap water east of the Mississippi at Thomas Grocery just past roan mountain.

AIR ride faq:

How do I "register" for a ride?

To register for an AIR ride simply sent these details to ashevillerandonneurs@gmail.com

  • The date and ride you are interested in registering for
  • Your active RUSA membership number
  • Your first name / last name
  • A working phone number

How do I get a RUSA membership?

To register you must be an active RUSA member.

If you are not an active RUSA member head to https://rusa.org/pages/memberservices and register.
Note: if you are registering with RUSA close to the start of an event you likely cannot pay with a check in time. Instead use PayPal and email ashevillerandonneurs@gmail.com with your pre-registration information to get a full registration expedited.

What gear requirements are there?

For any of the ride that is done in the dark (even at the start), you MUST have:

  • A RUSA compliant reflective vest
  • Ankle reflectors
  • Active/working front light
  • Active/working rear red light

Ultimately all riders must meet or exceed the RUSA guidelines: https://rusa.org/reflectivity

Failure to meet these requirements will result in disqualification from the event.

Will there be SAG or support on the ride?

Unless otherwise noted there will be no SAG or support vehicle.

What kind of support is permitted?

You are able to receive support from event riders anywhere on course.

You are allowed to receive support (even from non riders) at each "control".

No other support is allowed.
