Welcome to BSG p/b App Ortho
 
ParkwayBSG is a challenging to strenuous 90 mile loop ride starting and ending at the Valle Crucis Elementary School, approximately 5 miles south of Boone, North Carolina. The cumulative climbing elevation is 6629 feet with the climb up to the gap at Snake Mountain, milepoint 50, reaching an 18-20% grade near the top.
 
Race StartBSG showcases the mountain communities of Watauga and Ashe counties, North Carolina; highlights of the route is the signature climb over the 4,500 foot gap at Snake Mountain, and a 10 mile "flat" on old US 421.
 
A 50 mile, 4,200 feet elevation, "Half Century" is available for those who prefer the sanity of a challenging but shorter route. Both rides are fully supported with aid stations and SAG support.
 

Blood Sweat and Gears is planned and executed by BSG Events, Inc., a fund raising non-profit.   Net proceeds from the ride are donated to local charities in the High Country.
