Saturday August 31st

One Time Only

Pedal hard this August in the 16th annual Ride! Ballantyne and enjoy this favorite tradition amongst the Greater Charlotte outdoor cycling community. Ride! Ballantyne accommodates to a range of cyclists and triathletes by offering routes 30 miles to 80 miles with a variety of faster flat roads and challenging hills to climb. Regardless of the distance traveled or skill required, every Ride! Ballantyne cyclist will be impacting the YMCA Annual Campaign which supports programs ranging from teaching youth to swim & read to helping cancer survivors gain their strength to fight the disease. In 2018, cyclists raised over $16,000.

Cyclists will leave the Morrison Family YMCA campus and ride towards Waxhaw and beyond with longer distances exploring western Union County. Fueling stations with restrooms are available on all four routes. Included with Ride! Ballantyne entry fees are: SAG support, directional cue sheets, staffed fueling stations and pre/post ride food. A Labor Day Cookout for Ride! Ballantyne participants will begin after 10:00 AM at the Bojangles’ Pavilion immediately post ride. Make your pedal strokes count and strengthen your endurance while helping the YMCA strengthen our community
