Get those costumes ready—for you and your bike, because the Asheville on Bikes Pumpkin Pedaller will be on Saturday, October 28th. When else do you get an excuse to dress up, roll through the streets of Asheville with 700 of your closest friends, and decide whose costume is cleverest over a pint of tasty New Belgium beer?

As always, the Pumpkin Pedaller kicks off with a family-friendly group bike ride. This year’s “Ride More” route gives you the option to ride anywhere from 4 to 12 miles of rolling hills and tours RAD, Montford, North Asheville, and Downtown. Do the whole enchilada if you want, or you can easily modify the route for a shorter (and flatter) ride. Smiles are more important than miles.

Meet at New Belgium Brewing at 3PM and be ready to roll out at 3:30. To ensure a safe and happy ride, make sure your bikes are in good shape and ready to roll—although folks from Youngblood Bikes and Motion Makers will be on hand to provide quick bike checks if needed. We highly recommend front and rear lights and a bike bell to maximize safety during the ride. Costumes for you and your bike encouraged, but not required.

After the ride, meet back at New Belgium Brewing for a Halloween party, Asheville on Bikes style! Expect music, bicycle games, and a costume contest with prizes. There will also be several food trucks and plenty of New Belgium Beer on tap for purchase. For each beer sold, New Belgium will donate $1 to AoB, plus they’re donating all their tips to us! Festivities kick off at 5:00 PM.
