From The Bean in beautiful Downtown Oriental, NC this 106-mile route will take riders through the bucolic dales of Pamlico, Craven, and Beaufort Counties. Riders will almost certainly be greeted by stout headwinds coming and going. Highlights along the route include the seemingly endless 8.9 mile stretch of Sweet Walker Rd., the 6% grade over the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge in Hobucken, and long stretches of the silkiest, smoothest, and fastest fresh asphalt you’ve ever laid rubber against as you rip down Straight Road en route to the idyllic loop around Orchard Creek. Wise riders will meter their efforts accordingly at each of the Official Chuck FONDEAUX! Strava Segements, making sure to save some juice for the high speed lead out through the Oriental township en route to an all out blast for the Finish Line at the top of the ONC bridge.
