Best Buddies Breakaway Camp: Asheville offers riders a once-in-a-lifetime cycling experience. Riders can expect some of the most beautiful vistas one will ever see on a bike as they spend five (5) days exploring the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains.
Cyclists will ride from the scenic town of Asheville, North Carolina, through countryside backroads and along the Blue Ridge Parkway with splendid panoramic mountain views. Summiting the peaks of Elk Mountain, Mt. Michell and Mt. Pisgah, these are just a few places your cycling journey will take you at the Best Buddies Breakaway Camp: Asheville.
Our base camp for the extent of our stay will be at the renowned and historic Omni Grove Park Inn Resort in Asheville. Located atop Sunset Mountain, the Omni Grove not only provides one the most luxurious of stays you can find on the East Coast, but also offers an immediate connection to the region’s natural wonders. Throughout the duration of the stay, cyclists of all levels will have access to professional nutritionists, physiologists, cycling mechanics, and of course, the direct engagement from Best Buddies’ staff of professionally trained coaches.
Staffed exclusively by USA Cycling certified coaches, our staff will lead riders through a rigorous and rewarding training regimen. Whether you are working on speed training in Riverside Drive – an ideal option for a flat ride along the charming French Broad River – or perhaps our coaches want to focus on climbing “America’s Favorite Drive” along the Blue Ridge Parkway, every rider will receive the personal attention and support they deserve.
