Smart Bets web extra: Asheville Summer Cycle, June 28

Asheville on Bikes’ Summer Cycle, on Saturday, June 28, is definitely about bikes. The annual social ride leaves City Hall at 4 p.m., cruises for seven miles through North Asheville and ends at the Wedge Brewing Company. “The Summer Cycle is a celebration of casual urban riding through Asheville’s beautiful neighborhoods,” says a press release.

But this ride is about music, too. That finish line at the Wedge? Prepare to be met there by sounds from Claude Coleman, Jr (formerly of Ween) and longtime local musician C Scott (formerly of Speedsquare). Oh yeah — and cold beer, plus snacks from El Kimchi food truck.
