The 5th annual Skeeter has been scheduled for Saturday, September 9th. Current plans are to use the same routes as last year. If changes are made updates will be posted.
You can register online at BikeReg.com – Skeeter Ride. Online registration is preferred but you may also register on site the day of the ride.
Loops begin and finish at Tabernacle United Methodist Church at 5721 Methodist Road Greensboro, NC.
Ride distances included 10, 25 and 50 mile routes. Each route will be marked with both road paint and signs. Sag wagons with water tour the routes in case any riders need assistance.
The routes run south of the church. Maps will be posted here, and on our Facebook page.
The 50-miler is on country roads past numerous dairy farms covering five counties. There are two rest stops with restrooms on the 50-miler and one rest stop with restrooms on the 25-miler.
The 10-mile ride is aimed towards the average cyclist. The 25 and 50-mile routes provide a more challenging ride for those who enjoy various terrains.
Before the ride and at rest stops, there will be water, PB&J sandwiches, fig newtons and fruit. After the ride will be breakfast burritos, fruit and baked goods.
We look forward to see you all again in September. Spread the word and invite your friends!
After the Skeeter Ride head on into town and enjoy the 77th National Folk Festival. The Folk Festival is a FREE three day event full of American culture with singers, dancers, craftsmen, workshop demonstrations, children’s activities and a variety of food and drink.

Cycles de Oro of Greensboro will be on hand to provide basic repair and services during the ride.
