Hope For The Warriors Bicycle Ride: Le Tour de Bogue Banks

It's not unusual to see bicycles traversing both the shores and streets of Bogue Banks from Fort Macon to Emerald Isle. We think this area is a fantastic place to bike! It's a great way to get some exercise while you breathe in the ocean air and take in the coastal views. If you're in town this weekend, you'll notice that something more is going on than just your normal bike traffic.

Le Tour de Bogue Banks bicycle ride begins its second year this Saturday, April 21 by donating all its proceeds to the Hope For The Warriors organization. This organization was founded by a group of military wives in 2006 in hopes of gaining support for wounded U.S. service members, their families, and the families of the fallen. The Hope For The Warriors was founded (and is still headquartered) in North Carolina but has grown and established a nationwide presence.

This year's event begins at 8 a.m. and has two bicycle rides including a long course and a short course. The long course is a 42.6-mile ride that begins at the Atlantic Beach Town Park just off Hwy. 58 and continues over the Atlantic Beach Bridge through the town of Morehead City and on to Cape Carteret then returning over the Emerald Isle Bridge through the towns of Emerald Isle, Pine Knoll Shores, and finishing in Atlantic Beach.

The short course is a 10-mile ride that begins at the Atlantic Beach Town Park and continues on to Fort Macon State Park and back.

If you'll be in Emerald Isle this weekend, it's not too late to join in either ride and support our military and their families. Same-day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. at the Atlantic Beach Town Park with a $50 donation for participation in the long course and a $25 donation for the short course.

Even if you're not up for the bicycle ride, step out and cheer on our riders! They'd love to see you and they'd certainly appreciate your encouragement.

There is still time to make plans to stay with us in Emerald Isle this weekend whether you are a spectator or a participant in the Hope For The Warriors Le Tour de Bogue Banks event. Sun-Surf Realty can help you find just the right vacation rental for your needs.
