Gibbs Cycling Event

The 2nd Annual JD Gibbs Cycle Charlotte is set to roll from the Charlotte Motor Speedway and travel through the beautiful roads of Mecklenburg, Union and Cabarrus Counties on a NASCAR themed bicycle ride. During the ride, you will enjoy the behind scenes racing stories as several past, current and future stars of the sport will join the event. New for 2019, we will have one timed section on the 50 Mile Green Flag Route and two timed sections on the 75 mile Checkered Flag Route. Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 22 at 9:00 AM as this is one event you don't want to miss.

Aid Station #1 will be hit by all three routes – It will be at the corner of Sam Black Rd/Cabarrus Station Rd.  There’s an old store there that we used to use a stop.  If we can’t get permission there, there’s  Legion Post just before this location.   We do plan to put a portable toilet at this location.    This is roughly mile 17. 5 on the Red Flag route, roughly 35.5 for the Green Flag ride,  and mile 58.5 for the Checkered Flag
