Scenic rural vistas along quiet country roads.
Historic farmsteads and rustic churches.
The pastoral heritage of the Piedmont.
Experience all this on the Carolina Tarwheels’ BikeFest Rural Heritage Tour. Tarwheels donates all proceeds, in excess of expenses, to bicycling related activities in our community. Since 2006 we have donated over $50,000! Previous recipients include Rails to Trails, East Coast Greenways, Chapel Hill Greenways, Triangle Trips for Kids, Lewis Days (bike restoration for children of need) and 78 needy kids who received new bicycles which we distributed through New Hope Elementary School and Durham Social Services.
