Emerald Isle Realty has teamed-up with the N.C. Coastal Federation, for their “Cycling for the Coast” event on Saturday, September 17th 2011. The NCCF’s first bike ride is to take place along the beautiful Bogue Banks.
“Cycling for the Coast” includes 20K, 40K and 80K rides, which provide good options for all biking levels. The ride will begin and end in Salter Path at the public beach access, around Milepost 10.5. The riders will leave in waves, beginning at 8 a.m. with the 80K group riding to Emerald Isle, then down to Fort Macon and back. The 40K and then the 20K riders will bike towards Atlantic Beach, turning around at specified points on the island. Volunteers will help with safety issues and mechanical breakdowns. There will be food and water stops along the way. As each of the three groups finish, participant names will be randomly drawn to win donated items from local businesses.
The goal of the ride is to raise awareness for North Carolina’s coastal estuaries and beaches and to raise money for the federation’s restoration and protection projects. As an effort to continue our “Green” practices as a company and help present both knowledge and visual beauty to our local and intricate estuary system, Emerald Isle Realty is a proud sponsor of this event. We offer a variety of rental options whether you’re coming alone or with a group. Choose from over 600 vacation rentals and find the perfect fit for you. What an ideal location to relax at the beach after a long day of spinning those wheels!
Members of the federation can pre-register for $35; non-members can register for $50, which includes a federation membership. Both fees include a “Cycling for the Coast” t-shirt. More information will be sent to registered riders closer to the event date.
