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 to the start of the ride in Blowing Rock. This transporation option leaves at 10am on Saturday, September 28 so it is suggested that you arrive in Raleigh by the evening of Friday, September 27. The Cycle North Carolina host hotel for Raleigh is TBD.
For those that purchase a seat on the bus to the start of the ride, that bus will depart from Raleigh on Saturday morning at a location TBD. Shuttle service is included if you stay at our hotel, and it will take you from the hotel to the loading zone for the bus. 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 Transports 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.
