East Bound and Down: Brevard Calling

East Bound and Down Header

I have a problem. I noticed it as soon as I saw the hazy blue peaks disappear in my rearview mirror. The problem became augmented during the 8 hour drive back to the greater Philadelphia area and the mess of a storm that was waiting patiently for me there. My co-pilot for the previous 4 days, photographer Matthew DeLorme seemed to share the sentiment as we watched the temps drop an alarming 25 degrees in a 20 mile northbound stretch of highway 81. In the three weeks or so since the trip I have had many dreams filled with amazing dirt, lush green February forests and amazing canned brews. When I wake, none of those things are a part of my reality. Well, maybe the beer is, but otherwise they remain far too distant memories. My problem is I don’t live in Brevard, North Carolina. And assuming that the onslaught of sales pitches (read: begging) to my wife to move to the south aren’t successful (a safe assumption) it’s a problem I’m going to have to live with; at least between increasingly frequent visits to my new favorite place on the east coast.

Sunset over Pisgah

Let’s rewind a few months before I get into my obsess...er...affliction. Last December during the From Where We Stand premier party, Neko Mulally invited me down to his new hometown of Brevard, NC to escape the cold and snowy winter of the northeast and shred some quality dirt. At that point in the winter, we had received an early season snowfall but the day itself was rather sunny and warm. In fact, the past few winters have seen very little in the way of snowy and cold days, with mild and dry winters becoming the new norm. Well, wouldn't you know it’s been a completely cold, icy and snowy mess here in the northeast so far this year. While the polar vortex-devil may be the delight of skiers and snowboarders everywhere, for those of us looking to put rubber to dirt, the forecasts have brought pain to our hearts. To say I was eager to make the trip actually is the understatement of the year.


Located in the southwest corner of the Tar Heel state, Brevard is essentially a dream town for mountain bikers and pretty much every other type of outdoor enthusiast you can think of. Over 300 miles of singletrack? Check. Three major craft breweries within 30 miles of downtown? Check. A progressive approach to public land management? Check. Year-round riding? Check. I could check quite a few things off, but Trek World Racing’s Neko Mulally puts it this way: “When you live in a place that is this cycling oriented, it helps your mentality. There aren’t a lot of places in the U.S. where you can train year-round; there’s the southwest and southern California, but those don't do it for me. I don’t think that the terrain there provides me with the best preparation for the racing I do. Here on the east coast the terrain is much more similar to what I find on the World Cup circuit. Brevard is easily the best place in the country for my training which is why I made my decision and I couldn’t be happier.

Wrenching at The Hub

A picturesque town of less than 8,000 with more than 300 miles of truly amazing singletrack in its backyard sounds too good to be true. In most places it would be, but not here. Outdoor recreation has become big business in Brevard and it’s not by accident. The town has a growing number of small restaurants, coffee and art shops and outdoor outfitters. More importantly, it has two fantastic bike shops. The Hub and Sycamore Cycles both employ friendly and knowledgeable staff, offer expansive gear selection and are directly across the street from one another and Pisgah National Forest. Their close proximity doesn't appear to affect business from what I can see; in fact, it’s surprising that there aren't more shops in town. “The really cool thing is how surrounded by public land we are.” says The Hub co-owner Jordan Salman. “Pisgah National Forest is right here and on the other side of town Dupont State Recreational Forest and on the opposite end of the county is Gorges State Park. There’s this big influx of recreation driving the economy. It’s bringing in more art, music and more of a mountain lifestyle.”


Carlos Galarza, a mechanic at Sycamore Cycles agrees. “The bike industry is the main industry since the paper mills moved out. The town sees that and it’s cool because they’re doing a lot to promote it. There was a piece of property on the other side of town called Bracken Mountain Reserve and they built a trail system that connects to Pisgah, which is a big deal because there just aren’t a lot of trail systems that you can use in town to link up to the main network. It’s a property that the town itself took the initiative to develop for trail purposes.”

this time I got behind the lens to shoot the man who s usually behind the lens

When there are hundreds of miles of gravel, there is no reason to really ride on the roads.” says the other half of The Hub ownership, Sam Salman. “Plus the trails in Pisgah are just so well designed. Brevard was trying to stay off of the map for a few years. Like a lot of mountain towns, a lot of people didn’t want Brevard in the spotlight. The truth is that when you work in a shop like this or any outdoor-based business, you do want to get the word out so you can put food on your table. Then Brevard College decided to form a mountain bike team and that decision really helped to elevate the town’s status. When you look at their training grounds right outside of their door, it’s easy to see why they’re so successful. There is so much singletrack here that even on the busiest weekends you can go on a 40 mile ride and see maybe two or three other riders out there. You can start on the trails here in Brevard and ride singletrack all of the way into downtown Asheville or even go all the way up into Boone if you’d like; assuming you have a few days to to do it.


Brevard College has actually won the past three Division II Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships and their best rider isn’t even a freshman yet. Next to Brevard is another quaint and small town called Hendersonville, where a warm and welcoming family named the Shaws live. In that family are brothers Walker and Luca, and those two boys can shred. Big brother Walker will be finishing up high school this spring and will be a freshman at Brevard College in the fall. Luca has his senior year ahead of him but both have Enduro World Series, World Cup, Pro GRT, Sea Otter, Crankworx and several other races between now and then. Together they make up two thirds of the SRAM/Troy Lee Designs Racing squad and both credit growing up in this part of the country as a major factor in their success.


I go to different places and ride all of these great spots but when I come home it’s just like ‘Bang!’ and I realize I’m pretty lucky.” says Walker. “With the weather and all of the strong people who ride here, you can always mix and it up and it just never gets boring. Like the trail (in DuPont) we were just on? I don’t think I’ve ever ridden it. It’s the same thing in Pisgah; there are thousands of trails and we maybe ride 20 of them. There are just so many that it’s so easy to keep it fun.” According to Luca, “There are a lot of great spots on the east coast, but during the winter you can’t really go much further north without worrying about the weather. Here, we will occasionally get crap weather but you really can ride all winter with great dirt and endless trails. You can’t beat it.”

There’s something in the water here. No really, there is something very nice about the water in Brevard. Perhaps it explains the absurd amount of talent that is coming from these parts. Probably not, but it does explain why breweries are flocking to this corner of the continent to open up shop. In fact, the water here does have a relatively neutral PH, which means it’s fairly easy to brew with without tinkering too much. Perhaps no other major brewery is as entrenched in mountain bike culture as Oskar Blues. The Colorado-based company, whose motto “Ride Bikes, Drink Beer, Repeat” opened up operations in Brevard in December of 2012 and it is already a cultural staple for the region.

Oskar Blues Brewery

Oskar Blues Brevard marketing director Anne Fitten-Glenn gave us a tour of the facilities and had a lot to say about the company’s connection with mountain biking. “Mountain biking is a pretty important part of who we are. We do a lot of sponsorships for all kinds of cycling events; mountain biking, road biking, etc. We are the beer sponsor for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (which took place the weekend of March 15th in Charlotte). From this brewery, we do a bunch of different rides including the Fletcher Flyer, which is a series of bike rides that has been around for 11 years. The Pisgah Omnium is going to start and end at the brewery this year. The Green River Games is a really cool singletrack ride through the Green River Gorge on trails that just opened up to mountain bikers. Last year was the first year of it and it’s going to happen again this September. We are also sponsors of Dirt Rag’s Dirt Fest this year.” Stop by their tap room on any given night and the vast majority of people sipping on brews are likely going to look as if they just finished a ride. My kind of crowd.

Oskar Blues Brewery

For three days, Matt and I shared the trails with four of the fastest guys on the east coast in Neko, the brothers Shaw and Neko’s roommate, mentor, former pro downhiller and Super D and Dual Slalom national champion, Christopher Herndon. The days were filled with long fire road and singletrack climbs and white knuckled, forearm searing descents on trails that could go toe-to-toe with anything you’ll find anywhere else. The Pisgah riding included Bennett’s Gap, Maxwell Cove, Black Mountain, Sycamore Cove, Cove Creek, Daniel’s Ridge, Farlow Gap, Long Branch and Cat Gap. Pisgah trails are steep, gnarly, rocky and rooty.


DuPont State Forest stands in stark contrast, providing riders with a much more purpose built and flowy trail riding experience. In DuPont we spent time on the Jim Branch, Hilltop and Ridgeline trails and even found time for a long jump contest on Pine Mountain. Sure, these two areas offer an interesting dichotomy of trail styles and that’s great. Furthermore, none of what we rode and I mean none whatsoever, was anything less than stellar. The thing is, Brevard says “I’ll see your fun on a handful of trails and raise ya another 300.”


When a town embraces our sport and community the way Brevard has, it makes sense that word is going to spread quickly and consequently Brevard has become a bucket list destination for many, including our neighbors north of the border. Lori Roberts, owner of the Sunset Motel and member of the Brevard travel advisory board notes, “I bought this place in April of 2011 and I would say at the time, maybe one-in-forty cars pulled up with a bike on it. Today it’s probably one-in-four. We’ve got you guys here from Pinkbike, we have another group upstairs and next week we’re getting some Canadians in. They (the Canadians) are really starting to pour in. We really are working as hard as we can to continue the momentum; we’re currently working to connect the Bracken Mountain trail to downtown!” Issues with the influx of two wheeled enthusiasts? “Cyclists are usually interesting people and they don’t just sit around. They’re always out doing things and it really just added a special energy to the area and I like being surrounded by interesting people.” It certainly doesn’t sound that way and nor should it.

Neko getting busy doing something that just can t be done.

Brevard has taken a leap of faith for mountain biking and the riders are responding. Therein lies my problem. Brevard wants mountain bikers and by golly, I want to spend all of my time in Brevard. I find myself wondering just how many stories I can squeeze out of this small town. I’ve started to think about which races I could skip in order to spend another long weekend on the best trails I have ever ridden. I'm Googling properties and land for sale in and around the town. It ain’t healthy. I have my wife, my family, friends and a life elsewhere; but that doesn't stop Brevard from calling. As I am writing this, we're getting a friendly, late-March reminder that winter isn't through with us just yet and it's snowing at a healthy clip. I may have a problem, but I also have a solution. I just need to get used to the drive.


Travel Suggestions:
Lodging- The Sunset Motel
Dining- The Square Root, Jordan Street Cafe, Quotations Coffee & Cafe and the Sunrise Cafe
Groceries- Food Matters Market
Beer- Oskar Blues Brewery and Brevard Brewing Company
Bike Shops- The Hub and Sycamore Cycles
Trails- Pick a trail. Any trail.

 East coast is definitely one of the best, most underrated places to ride

 Instantly Fav'd this article. I've never been, but I've been badly wanting to move. Trying to con the lady and a few friends to make the move is the hardest part. California is an amazing place to ride, but everything else you can have: attitudes, trail use disputes, cost of living, jaded rich kids. I'm ready to roll out. Brevard, watch out!

 Going next weekend! Bachelor Party Camping plus 3 days riding! Here's hoping the weather holds up. Blackmtn...Farlow's Gap...Dupont...Bent Creek...Kitzuma...Cove Creek...Bennett Gap!!! F-ing psyched... Pumped to be stoked after reading this...

 Agreed on "one of the best." not sure about "underrated." i guess it comes down to who is doing the rating. from MD alone we have spun out champs like Chris Eatough, Marla Streb, Jeremiah Bishop, just to name a few. again, this is MD alone. if riders don't know about NY, PA, NC, WV, and the East Coast scene, they just aren't paying attention. all that means is more fun for us : P

 Well, as someone who was born and raised in Brevard and who's family has been here for a century or more.. biking and outdoor activity/tourism is not making this town "thrive". It's all we have now because the county caters to tourism industry rather than focusing on bringing real jobs to this starving town. All the real locals have left or are struggling because it's a ghost town now to what it used to be. We have the best riding on the east coast by far, but seeing articles like this is misleading of to the state of Transyvlania County.

 Props for reality. Big reason not all awesome riding areas are awesome places to live. You either need population or you extract resources and I'm sure many would not advocate for the latter. Good spot for a vacation home though.

 Fortunately Asheville is a relatively short commute away, where the town is thriving with a good amount of both tourism and real jobs.

 Tis true what KJones says.

I literally grew up in Pisgah, outside of Brevard. My dad retired from the Forest Service. I love the outdoors, and I love mountain biking. But when I turned 17 (1999), I moved away to Charlotte for all the opportunities it offered that WNC didn't.

15+ years later I finally found the job that can accommodate living there (or anywhere). Now I need to convince my wife to move...

 I live in Asheville... Brevard is really crappy. They say 300 miles. More like 3. They say major craft brews. Craft as in Bud Light. They say demanding and technical terrain. Pancake flat. Place is a dump. Don't move there. Asheville either...

 You must be riding Bent Creek Sketchy.. Find some new trails- Since you're in Asheville, try Kitsuma for a 2800 elevation drop in 3 miles. The reason I moved to Asheville was because I experienced this article 1st Hand. What this article did leave out however is the ratio girls to guys. It's phenomenal.

 What a great article!! I'm blessed to live in NC and I assure you that the riding is as good as the article states. Pisgah is very challenging, unbelievably beautiful, and great fun. Be prepared!!!! These are some of the toughest trails I've ever gotten to ride, and that includes downhill as well. I think Neko Mulally summed it up pretty well, I could see how it would be great WCup training, but most of the time I think the climbs/hike-a-bike are just as tough.

 For a southeast feature, you should get all the down into Florida. If there was one place you could see it should be Santos, Ocala. They have a huge rider support and amazing trails that don't quite catch as much media craze but are just as much fun to ride.

There are definitely places just as much fun to ride all the way from Atlanta to Miami, you just have to do a little digging to find the nuggets Beer

 f*ck YEAH! From Where We Stand is killer. I just spent a week in Oneonta (riding in the snow unfortunately) after watching it. After watching Church and now seeing this awesome photo journal, it looks like my next trip is down south. Thanks again for all your awesome content!

 Great article. I couldn't agree more. Having lived in the Northeast my whole life. CT to be exact. I have to say that Ive grown tired of the winters, and have been considering moving my family down to the Ashville, Brevard area. This article makes my decision that much easier. Now all I have to do is get my wife and kids to take a trip and I think Ill be all set.

 Asheville, near Brevard, is beer city U.S.A, and the trails in the Pisgah and Dupont are all you need, but yet there is so much more. I love it here and hope that when I finish school I will find something in the area. To say it would be a bummer leaving this place is an understatement.

 From a fellow N.C. LBS, though a few hours away, many, many times during the week days our customers come in with minor repairs, raving their recent adventures from Brevard an the western N.C. systems! Thank's for the awesome N.C. write up....

 My husband has done a few races there and we love the atmosphere. It's 4 hours away for us (we are close to Raleigh) but it's worth living where we do because the economy is really great in the Raleigh Durham area compared to other places. If you are any sort of tech geek or project manager you should check it out. Plus the beaches are only 2 hours away.

 Not sure if you know that Brevard NC and area is being invaded from the March break till about the end of April by CANADIANS from Ontario. I am one of them and as I type this I will be heading down in one day. -10c tonight here in Collingwood , ON. and 27C in Brevard. Yeah baby, farlow gap here we come.Blue Ridge parkway or bust.

 I love riding Brevard. The Bike M ride using Black Mountain, Sycamore Cove is awesome, and we really like dupont. For anyone not wanting to make the trip do it anyway, but if you can't the Rothrock State forest is nice riding, but even rockier in most spots and not as long of descents and about 100 miles or trails or so.

 Kjones is right. Biking is helping the area but it isn't making it thrive. As a native I've seen how drastic this place has changed since the major industry moved out, along with hundreds of families, of which few have been replaced due to not really having any jobs to move here to.

That being said, I loved the article. I do love the buzz the extra people give the town in the summer and fall. I count myself lucky to have a good job here(family business) so I can stay. When I was younger I took this place for granted. But the older I get the more I appreciate that I call this place home. Oh and I know Chris Herndon...buys metal roofing from us occasionally. Super cool guy!

 There was a great buddy of mine named Jay that got my friend and I started into mountain biking and our first ride was in DuPont. We road four hours of tranquil scenery and never looked back. That was three years ago and now we have more than 20 plus group rides a year in DuPont and Pisgah! I live in Greenville S.C. And we travel up and over Caesars Head to DuPont almost every weekend. We also go to Saluda N.C for kayaking the Green River. If you ever want to ride with us, you can look us up on Facebook group page called Nirvana MTN Biking. We have 22 members just on this group from all other states. This is a great place to live!

 What a great write up on Brevard, my wife and I started going the Brevard twelve years ago just newly married no kids. Now we have three girls whole all ride, we look forward to every March break here in Ontario to hit some awesome dirt riding. We meet a great gal named Jordy "now called Auntie" to our kids the second day we first came to Brevard. She puts up with us for a few hours of yard work each day to help pay for our stay. Pisgah and DuPont have been some of my best places in the world to shred the two wheels. We now have a group of 12-15 form our XC race team back home who now call Brevard there March Break hot spot.

 I live in Brevard after growing up in Atl and I have never felt more at home anywhere else in the world. If you do come to visit though a few things to remember. If you ride on the road watch out for old people.... They will kill you! many of them barely pay attention while driving and everyday I am pretty sure I see a person without a pulse on the road. Also the cops here are pretty much the Gestapo and love to harass you so always drive the speed limit and don't be an idiot. I feel like there are more cops here almost then there are in Atl. Otherwise a very friendly town with a lot going for it.... Just wish I could find a better career job as kory said

 GO TO SYCAMORE CYCLES AND TOUCH WES DICKSON'S BEARD. That is all. But seriously, growing up in Brevard has been great. The reality check of being a college student and realizing there is no opportunity here for me after I graduate is upsetting though. But the trails here are like no other. I've been all over the east coast to ride and race and there is really no place like home. But it more of a place to come and ride on a vacation than actually live here. Thanks for the great article though. It makes me proud to call Brevard home.

 Born in Brevard, and still live 15 minutes up the road in lake Toxaway baby! Smile bought my first mountain bike at Sycamore Cycles, I have rode allot of the trails mentioned in this over the past week, going to be hitting up dupont tomorow even if it does rain. I love this place

 Love this place. Almost went this past weekend, but my friend couldn't go. I prefer Dupont to Pisgah for the smoother trails, but Pisgah does have some pretty sick downhill (to reward you for going uphill, of course). Also check out FATS in SC if you have the time!

 I grew up in Brevard, my parents still live there, with Dupont 8 minutes from their front steps. It's a gift every time I go home for the holidays to get a few days to shred the amazing natural terrain in the area. Learning to ride and descend in Pisgah has made me pretty hard to impress when I'm elsewhere. Lower Black Mountain is still my favorite downhill bit I've ever ridden, anywhere. Great beer now and cheap lodging/food... what's not to like? Hard to live there as there's not much industry or local business outside of tourism or hospitality, but isn't that the case with most mountain towns? The attitude of the locals is warm and welcoming, too. Mix one part stoke with one part southern hospitality, season to taste with long days of shredding. Serves everybody.

 North Carolina has the distinction of having the best waves on the East Coast. (Outer Banks). Unfortunately every surfer on the East Coast converge there during the surf season,late summer and fall. Limited resources leads to a hostile environment. North Carolina also has the distinction of having the best single-track on the East Coast and never seams to get overrun to the point of destroying the trails.

 Oneonta is a great town of about 10,000 people, 3 hours from Manhattan on the northwest foothills of the Catskill Mountains. 40 miles of trails surrounding downtown, excellent coffee shops, restaurants, and LBS. Just over the hill from the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame and Brewery Ommegang. Once everything thaws out it is a killer place to spend a weekend, to which Brice here can attest. Feel free to shoot me a PM for more info and some local contacts.
