The Status Right Now

We love riding bikes, but health and safety are our primary concerns. In light of COVID-19 and our desire to ride, we are going to wait before we attempt to adjust the date of the 2020 Major Taylor Mountain Summit. We are monitoring the outbreaks of COVID-19 closely, are in contact with the local Blowing Rock government and are tracking North Carolina governmental agencies for guidance to determine the risk associated with the event. You are encouraged to keep riding to stay healthy, solo rides are good for you and comply with most Coronavirus self-isolation guidelines. Remember to wash your hands after riding. At this time all 2020 USA Cycling events scheduled up to April 5, have been postponed due to bans on public gatherings. We are not under USAC, but after that date, we will assess the situation on whether to make any changes to the Summit’s status.

Welcome to MTMS!

Welcome to the Major Taylor Mountain Summit, Web Site. We like to share our passion for cycling and inclusiveness around the nation. This is our 20th year hosting the training camp in the Appalachian Mountains.

It all started as trips to Bear Mt in New York and Skyline Drive in Virginia for The Major Taylor Cycling Club out of Columbus to get ready for the big rides in the early Spring. Twenty years ago The Majors invited MACC to join them in Gatlinburg TN, from then on it has grown into a major Spring event for Major Taylor clubs across the Nation.

We are starting to host other events like Excursions and Winter Camps with the same idea of riding in the mountains in other locations across the country. This year's Summit is in Blowing Rock, NC April 23-25, 2020. There are two winter training camps in Tucson February 6-10 and March 14-19, and plans for a Gravel Excursion this Summer.
