In 2015 the Assault on Mt. Mitchell will follow the same great course as years past: 102.7 miles with 10,357 feet of climbing! With 10 rest stops along the way, you will be able to refill, refuel, and make mechanical adjustments as needed.
On Monday, May 18, 2015 everyone from both events will line-up at the starting line in front of the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium.
There will be a mass start at 6:30 AM. Participants will ride together to the Tom Johnson campground where the Assault on Marion riders will finish. Mitchell riders then begin the grueling 28 mile ascent to the top!
Monday Spartanburg Direct Bus Ticket (Mt. Mitchell to Spartanburg)
At the request of some our participants, we are adding a premium bus service direct from Mt. Mitchell returning DIRECTLY to Spartanburg. NOTE: This will be a long ride, ~3 hours and space is LIMITED to 60 passengers. The bus will make a stop for a restroom break, and a box lunch will be provided. There will only be 2 buses available and they will leave promptly at 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM from Mt. Mitchell, so please make sure that if you purchase this ticket that you are likely to finish your AOMM within 7 hours or by 8.5 hours at the latest. If you are unable to board the 4:00 bus, you will have to forfeit your seat/ticket and NO REFUND will be issued. Due to the length of the ride and as a courtesy to the other passengers, we cannot hold the direct return bus beyond the 4:00 cut off. This will be a trial year for this service to determine if we should expand this option in future years. IMPORTANT! Your bike will still have to be transported via truck back to Spartanburg, so you will likely have to wait on your bike in Spartanburg. Bikes CANNOT be transported on the busses. No REFUNDS will be issued on this bus ticket – make sure you have your travel plans / logistics worked out with your family and friends BEFORE purchasing. This policy is consistent with over all Assaults refund policies.
