    The Carolina Tarwheels Bicycle Club presents the 20th annual BikeFest Rural Heritage Tour, to be held in Hillsborough, NC, on Saturday, August 8, 2015. The tour begins in downtown Hillsborough, and offers a choice of rides: a 35-mile half metric, a 62-mile metric century, and a 100-mile English century. This is a fully-supported ride with rest stops, refreshments and delicious snacks, and restrooms. Routes are clearly marked and patrolled by support vehicles. For those who want a much shorter ride, there is a free Fun Ride, a seven mile tour of historic sites in and around Hillsborough. All riders will be provided with directions, and can ride the route at their own pace. Tarwheels donates all proceeds, in excess of expenses, to bicycling related activities in our community. Since 2006 we have donated over $70,000 to bicycling related charities, including Triangle Trips for Kids, Kidical Mass, the Special Olympics Cycling Team, and the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition. Advance registration is required. For more information, please visit http://www.ncbikefest.org/
