About the Assaults..
The Assault on Mt. Mitchell began in 1975, when a group of friends led by John Bryan decided to ride from Spartanburg, SC to the top of Mt. Mitchell - the highest point east of the Mississippi River. From that casual beginning, the annual event has become one of the best known centuries in the country.
Part of the ride is along the Blue Ridge Parkway and ends at the top of Mt. Mitchell State Park where the number of riders is limited by both the National Park Service and the Mt. Mitchell State Park rules. So, the Assault on Mt. Mitchell have been limited to 750 finishers for a number of years.
