2016 Jim Schmid bicycles 3-mile French Broad River Greenway – Asheville, NC

Living in Black Mountain, NC we are just 15 miles from Asheville, NC. Since we’re so close when we go to town we like to make a day of it by riding a local trail and doing some shopping. Asheville has many short sections of paved trails around town. They have a long-range plan to eventually connect them. The French Broad River Greenway goes through parks along the River. After my ride I stopped in at the New Belgium Brewing Tasting Room. A big deal for Asheville – New Belgium has built a huge brewery on the River. It will open for tours soon. They will also have a trail along the river behind the brewery. Pretty neat.
