The Lenoir Bicycle Festival is a family-friendly event focusing on bicycling and outdoor activity. Held in Downtown Lenoir, the Lenoir Bicycle Festival gives everyone a chance to ride around on downtown streets, conquer obstacle courses and bike challenges, take bike safety and maintenance classes, and visit all our great downtown shops and restaurants. We want to get people on bikes and bikes on our wonderful greenway, trails, and downtown.

  • Obstacle Courses: We’ll have three obstacle courses on Main Street and West Avenue – two easy and one advanced. The obstacle courses will have rumble boards and humps, ramps, balance beams, seesaws, limbo bars, and more. Riders can try out the courses all day. We may even change them up mid-event.
  • Time Trials with Prizes: A time trial course will be set up on West Avenue. Riders can attempt the time trial as often as they want to get their best time. There will be five age groups. The fastest time in each group will win a free Family Summer Swim Pass to the Lenoir Aquatic & Fitness Center. The age groups are 5-6, 7-9, 10-12,13-15, and 16 and up.
