With 8,600 ft. of climbing... it is a true test for the strongest of riders. The event will be held Saturday May 16th. The Beech Mountain Metric is a BSG (Blood, Sweat and Gears) Events ride, planned and executed by the businesses and citizens of Beech Mountain.
BSG Events is a 501c3 fund raising non-profit whose net proceeds are donated to local charities and public safety agencies in the High Country. The Metric is a timed ride. Split times will be captured at the bottom of Beech Mountain with hill climb times posted in addition to overall times. Riders have the option of capturing times in teams. A team consists of 5 members with the fastest three times added together to determine the overall team time.
