The Tour d’Apple on Labor Day

The Tour d’Apple is an exciting ride through Western North Carolina’s apple orchards, waterfalls, and mountains to benefit the charitable projects of the Hendersonville Four Seasons Rotary Club. It includes a Century (100 miles), a metric-century (100km), as well as 45 and 25mi options.

The ride takes place on Labor Day, and features an exciting course (no matter which length you choose) complete with plenty of rest stops. The ride begins at 8:00am from Blue Ridge Community College.


“I’ve done over 100 organized rides like this and the 2 most important factors to me personally are a clearly marked course and an ample number of port o Johns at the rest stops. Tour d Apple gets an A+ in both catergories. Probably the best marked route I’ve ever experienced. Job well done!”
“This was an amazing ride! I think it was a excellent challenge for my skill/experience level. Rest stops, though only stopped at one, were borderline luxurious with what was offered. Don’t change a thing. I will be back next year, along with some friends.”
“One of the best organized rides in the region.”
“The event was very well organized! Everything was perfect. Thank you for a great time!”
“It is one of the prettiest routes in the area!!”
“Excellent scenery, the rest stops were plentiful and well run, the ride was beautiful and enjoyable; keep up the good work!”
