Beech Mountain Named as 2011 Mtn Bike Nat’l Championships Host Site

Beech Mountain has long been infamous for its back roads which are perfect for Mountain Biking NC and cycling; however, these next two years, we think ,are going to solidify the resort area as a must visit for any avid lover of mountain biking and cycling. The gravity challenge and finals competition of USA Cycling’s American Mountain Bike Challenge Competition will be hosted at Beech Mountain North Carolina the next two years. This year’s event is slated to take place September 22nd-25th at Beech Mountain Ski resort. This marks the first time in history that the national championships have made their way to the southeastern region of the United States.

It is no surprise that Beech Mountain NC has been named as the host for the national championships the next two years. A few years back, legendary cycling champion Lance Armstrong remarked about the mountain roads and highways that lead up to the 5,506 feet elevation summit. Since that time, Beech Mountain Resort NC, made plans to get a bike park underway and it seems this year could be the possible year that it will open as resort officials plan to host the championships in the new world class mountain biking facility.

Beech Mountain is located in Avery County in the High Country. It is the highest unincorporated town east of the Mississippi River and boasts an elevation of 5,506 feet at its summit.  Opportunities to enjoy the outdoors abound and you will find countless spots to enjoy your favorite activities such as golf, tennis, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and even snow skiing and snowboarding.  Find information on Beech Mountain such as Real Estate Beech Mountain, Beech Mountain Rentals and other Beech Mountain Lodging, Beech Mountain Golf Club, and Ski Resort Beech Mountain.

We feature Resort Mountain Cams on Beech Mountain NC and in other beloved areas of the High Country.  Check out the section of cameras labeled Beech Mountain to see any of the Beech Mountain Cams.  The Beech Mountain Parkway Cam is located near the top portion of the mountain, just as you are getting into the town.  Its one of the Mountain Resort Cams that best shows the weather and road conditions.  In the winter, our Ski Beech Cams are nice to watch, especially the Oz Run Beech Mountain Cam
