Annual Collier Lilly Ride At Mountain Sports Festival

Annual Collier Lilly Ride for NC Outward Bound School Takes Place at the Mountain Sports Festival

Pedaling through the Blue Ridge Mountains for a second year is the Collier Lilly Ride for North Carolina Outward Bound School. In tandem with both Memorial Day Weekend and the Mountain Sports Festival, the Collier Lilly Ride for NCOBS is an exciting half-century route, beginning and ending at popular Carrier Park on the banks of the French Broad River. The 16th Annual Mountain Sports Festival will kick off on May 27 this year and last through Memorial Day weekend. The festival, which is known for its music, food, outdoor gear demonstrations and events brings outdoor enthusiasts from all over the Southeast.

The ride is hosted by local nonprofit, North Carolina Outward Bound School, who has been offering challenging outdoor expeditions to people of all ages for nearly 50 years. Outward Bound programs deliver powerful life lessons by encouraging participants to safely and confidently step outside their comfort zones and realize they are capable of more than they know. The ride will honor the memory of Collier Lilly, a graduate from the school and an outdoorsmen and all proceeds will go directly to providing scholarships to all qualifying Western North Carolina youth, teachers, and veterans who attend a North Carolina Outward Bound School course.
