Bonnie Kate Cyclo-cross Race:
Hey folks, we are proud announce our day sponsor for next Saturdays race. Please visit the Bonnie Cafe’ in the historic 1935 Bonnie Kate Theater Building. Who was Bonnie Kate? The first one to tell me gets a free meal at the “The Bonnie Kate Cafe’,
Sycamore Shoals and Fort Watauga:
We are halfway through the series now and this is one of the most unique venues yet. Lots of stuff for families to do. I’m proud to say that my ancestors mustered at Fort Watauga and rode to Kings Mountain, South Carolina to defeat the British at the Battle of Kings Mountain. The start will be just a few hundred feet from the fort. The fort is a replica of the one that existed during the American Revolution. Believe it or not, freedom began on the banks of the Watauga river at Fort Watauga.
