Hertford, North Carolina is the at the Heart of History. Some of the oldest houses in the country are located in Perquimans County. And yet, it has retained its rural heritage. We invite you to cycle quiet country roads, and see the beautiful countryside. Small country stores, old time churches, and REALLY FLAT ROADS. Not a hill in sight. Fabulous food stops with homemade goodies. 

New this year, the ride will be part of Perquiman County's "RiverBash", a celebration of Perquimans County's 350 anniversay. Plans for a WIDE variety of fun events that weekend including a fish fry, art walk, wooden boat show, Coast Guard rescue demo, pirate re-enactment, craft show, live music and food trucks, and MORE. For current info on the full event go to PerquimansRiverBash.com

The event is sponsored by Historic Hertford, Inc, a NC Main St program. Money from ride will be used to revitalize downtown historic Hertford.

We always do a free dip of ice cream at our local historic pharmacy/lunch counter. We will feed you at the end! Since plans are still being worked out, not sure if that's us cooking hamburgers and hot dogs or including dinner with a food vendor that will be at the RiverBash.
