2010 Ride to a Wish

The Ride to a Wish is a challenging 50/100 mile course, winding through scenic Tyrrell County. All proceeds from the ride will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina to grant the wish of an extraordinary seven-year-old named Eleora. Eleora, a North Carolina native is visual and hearing impaired, hypotonic, and severely mentally and physically handicapped. Together, we can ride to her wish.

Tyrell County was selected for its low-traffic roads, beautiful scenery, and historical significance. Riders will begin and finish in the town of Columbia, which was established in 1793 along the banks of the beautiful Scuppernong River. The course heads south through farmlands and marshes to the north shore of the largest natural lake in North Carolina, Lake Mattamuskeet. From there riders will circumnavigate the lake, having an opportunity to see marshes, cypress trees, and migratory waterfowl. After completing a lap around the lake, riders will head north back to Columbia and the after-ride events.
