Cycle to Lake Junaluska, or C2LJ, is a 3-day supported charity ride from Hickory to Lake Junaluska that takes place June 17-19, 2019. This year’s route is outstanding and our overnight hosts will be providing great food & activities each evening.
C2LJ is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization through the Appalachian Wesley Foundation designed to provide an avenue to promote physical fitness through cycling and raise monies for various ministries of the United Methodist Church in the Western North Carolina Annual Conference (WNCC). The ride coincides with the Annual Conference of the WNCC that is held each year at Lake Junaluska in Waynesville, NC. Each year a charity will be chosen for the proceeds to go towards and routes will vary to provide opportunities to explore North Carolina’s rural beauty (see our donation page for details).
