Lake Norman Excursion Announcement

The 2015 Lake Norman Excursion, previously planned for June 6, 2015 in Mooresville, NC will not be held this year. The reasons are complex and the organizers are sorry that the event will not be held. Thank you for supporting this ride so very well for the last eight years, and please check back next year as the organizers will use best efforts to reinstate the ride to create a 2016 event.


HomeThe lake Norman Excursion cycling event has a long tradition among North Carolina cyclists.  Started by Dwight Calloway in the mid 1980s, the ride ran from Denver, N.C., along the beautiful shores of Lake Norman.  The ride was discontinued in the early 90s when Calloway retired.  Cool Breeze Cyclery, The Trek Store of Charlotte, Cool Breeze Coaching and Lowes have teamed up with the American Red Cross to re-create this unique cycling experience and use the proceeds from the supported ride as a fundraiser for the Red Cross.
