The Off-Road Assault on Mt. Mitchell is a 60 mile, mostly off road, bicycle route climbing a total of 10,500 feet. This race begins and ends in downtown Old Fort, NC. The trail takes you through the Pisgah National Forest to the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mt. Mitchell over stunning U.S. Forest Service roads and unbelievable single track. There is still time to register for the ORAMM and its "sister" race, taking place the day before, the Jerdon Mt. Challenge.
