River to the Sea Bike Ride

Cape Fear area cyclists joined together on May 4, 2013 for a 20 mile casual-paced bicycle ride from downtown Wilmington to Wrightsville Beach and back on Wilmington's River to Sea Bicycle Route - North Carolina Bike Route 1.

Approximately 200 people participated in the ride. The group followed the River to Sea Bikeway along the Historic Beach Car Line from downtown Wilmington to Wrightsville Beach.

The River to the Sea Bikeway (WMPO Bicycle Route 1) is an 11-mile, on- and off-road bicycle route that follows the Historic Beach Car Line, which carried vacationers from downtown Wilmington to Wrightsville Beach by trolley. The bikeway is comprised of neighborhood residential streets, off-road multi-use paths, and a few busy arterial roadways.
