The Assault of Mount Mitchell

May 21, 2023 - May 22, 2023


The Assault on Mt. Mitchell is a 102.7-mile self-paced ride from Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium in downtown Spartanburg, South Carolina, along the Blue Ridge Parkway, to the summit at Mt. Mitchell State Park in North Carolina—a total vertical ascent of more than 10,000 feet.  The Assaults is one of the most intense, premier cycling experiences in the Southeast and was picked by Strambecco as one of the best road cycling events in the Southeast.  The event draws a full field of nearly 850 cyclists worldwide each year. The scenic mountainous course is as challenging as it is breathtaking, but experience cyclists return yearly to best previous personal records.  You can refill, refuel, and make mechanical adjustments with ten rest stops.

A sister event, The Assault on Mount Marion, offers a shorter version and separates the event altogether from the massive Mount Mitchell event. Also picked as one of the best road cycling events in the Southeast, it is still a large ride at 74 miles but has nowhere near the vertical gain of the Mount Mitchell Assault. If completed in proper time, this smaller version gives you a slot for the Assault of Mount Mitchell.
