Right now hundreds of cyclers from across the country are setting up camp in Washington for a weekend of biking throughout Beaufort County.
Registration started at 5pm Thursday afternoon for Cycle North Carolina, an event that will have about 1,000 bikers riding through Beaufort County this weekend.
Washington coordinators say they are so excited to kick off the busy season with an event like this one. They say it's not only a great way to showcase the area but also perfect timing since Washington's Music in the Streets also starts Friday night. So far about 1,000 bikers are signed up, they'll be riding on predetermined routes throughout the county. A group of people, organizers say are ready to enjoy the community.
If you don't have anything to do this weekend and are interested in signing up, you can still do so, there's on site registration. One day costs $60, the whole weekend costs $135.
