Over 1,000 cyclists began the long trek in Brevard, NC and ended at Carolina Beach, NC. Don Pratt, Cycle instructor for the Outer Banks Family YMCA, and his wife Jeanne started practicing in May and logged over 1500 miles. "This was our first year and it was wonderful." The scenery was beautiful and the highlight of their trip was the visit through downtown Matthews, NC with a cross over the towns' River Walk.
