During our Board of Directors meeting in January 2021 we have proposed modest funding a few other rides for 2021. This is intended to pay entry fees and or possibly a meal provided for the events selected. Below you will find a list of proposed events and their status.
Max at the 2020 SMRR in Townsend, TN

EVENT LOCATION DATE
Tour De Low Country Walterboro, SC. March 27 BACK ON!!!!! This event has been rescheduled to the original date, 27 March 2021. The Rice Festival will not happen but the associated bike ride is going forward. We have funding to pay for the registration of 20 disabled veterans. If you are a disabled vet with 70% or higher rating or if you just want to join us, drop us an e-mail at email@example.com Registrations must be submitted no later than 19 March 2021.
Smokey Mtn Recumbent Rally (SMRR) May 14 -16th. Annual event that we have been a part of since it's inception. Great rides in and around Townsend Tn and a highlight of the event is a Saturday morning ride in Cades Cove and for the most adventurous a 6 mile downhill ride out of the Cove back to camp. This always fills up quickly so do not wait to contact us.
Silver Comet Trail Ride Rockmart GA. June 25, 26 and 27th Camping trip to the Silver Comet. The campgrounds at Rockmart are currently fully booked and The Tour De Low Country is back on so wear back to our original date in June. This will immediately follow the Valor Games so it will make for a crouded few weeks but this trail is one of my favorite so lets add it to our schedule and ride. HTW will be able to sponsor a food night or possibly 2 but not lodging so plan accordingly. If you are interested in riding contact HTW at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704-724-4362
Tour De Turns Charlotte, NC August 28. Great fun for a cause in Charlotte, NC
HTW 12th Annual Event Charlotte/Mint Hill, NC October 22, 23 and 24th This is our premier event of the year. We will have the cycling community in Charlotte join us for two days of riding in and around the home of HTW. Please follow our facebook page for information and let us know as soonas you can if you are an interested veteran. Registration will open in late May or Early June for this event.
Guard to the Beach. Raleigh to Wilmington Nothing firm yet but usually a multi-day event at the beginning of October
Face of America Gettysburg, PA This is a fund-raiser event that brings riders from Washington DC to Gettysburg, PA. Check out the web site for more information but spots are filling up rapidly.
Neuse River Trail Ride. Raleigh/Durham, NC Glenn M, will be looking into setting up a ride here for sometime in the summer of 2021. This trail links up to others in the area so this could turn into a really nice ride.
Ft Fisher / Southport. Southport, NC Rick J is looking into a ride in the Ft Fisher area. The NC aquarium is there along with a short ferry ride into Historic Southport for a ride around.
Thermal Belt Trail Rutherfordton, NC This is a great trail that has only been opened for a short time. 14 miles of pristine pavement and picturesque little mill towns make this a very fun ride. We will ride this trail several times this year.
***If you have any other rides or are interested in any of these rides feel free to contact Jerry at: email@example.com I will consider the ride and look at the budget and get back to you. It is also important to understand that you may be asked to be responsible for local set-up and coordination if you find an event in the SE.
