Boone Area Cyclists is located in Boone, North Carolina – the heart of the High Country. Organized in September 2009, we are the club for cyclists of all ages, abilities, and styles of riding — commuters, mountain bikers, road cyclists, leisure riders, and anyone else who just likes to ride bikes. We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.

Boone Area Cyclists exists to empower the bike community through advocacy, partnership, and stewardship.


  • Advocacy: Educate our youth and adult population about the health and environmental benefits of bicycling as well as bicycle safety while riding or driving.
  • Partnership: Develop working relationships with private and public entities sympathetic to our mission. Acquire gifts and grants to fulfill our mission.
  • Stewardship: Ensure the development and maintenance of bicycling lanes, trails, and pathways, whether paved, gravel or single track.
  • Community: Promote bicycling through the creation of recreational and competitive bicycling events as well as facilitate activities, social events, and races that showcase bicycling opportunities in the Boone area.
