Flying to and from CNC

Flying into the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)

If you are flying to North Carolina for this year's Mountains to Coast Ride, it is recommended that you fly into the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and plan to take the bus transportation option from Raleigh-Durham to the start of the ride in Spruce Pine. This transporation option leaves at 10am on Saturday, October 5 so it is suggested that you arrive at RDU by the evening of Friday, October 4.  Cycle NC will partner with a host hotel that will serve as the bus loading area as well.  That hotel will be announced and posted here when finalized.

For those that purchase a seat on the bus to the start of the ride, that bus will depart from Raleigh-Durham on Saturday morning.  The bus will depart from the host hotel, which is to be determined at this time. Check-in will begin at 9am and the bus will leave at 10am. Included with the purchase of this transportation option is the transportation of your bike as well. All bikes will be loaded on a CNC Bike Transport Truck and taken to the start of the ride. 

Anyone choosing to fly into airports other than RDU must make their own arrangements to get to the start of the ride.

Shipping your bike for Cycle North Carolina
Cycle North Carolina offers the option for you to ship your bike to us for our Mountains to Coast Ride.  Once we receive your bike, our bike techs will assemble it before the event and we will have it ready for you on Saturday in Spruce Pine.  At the end of the ride, our bike techs will handle the breakdown, packing and shipping of your bike back to your home.  You can sign up for this during the registration process, or add it to your registration at a later date.  All bikes must be received no later than Wendesday, September 25th!

Flying out of Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)
If you will be flying out of RDU after the ride, you will want to plan to take the bus transportation option from Ocean Isle Beach to Raleigh-Durham after the ride. This bus will leave at 8am on Sunday, October 13. You should arrive back in Raleigh-Durham around 11am. After dropping off at the host hotel, the shuttles will continue to RDU to drop anyone who is flying out on Sunday.
