Raptor Ride PhotoThe Raptor Ride is a well supported bicycle ride starting and finishing at Brandon Hills Vineyard in Yadkinville, NC. Choose from twenty, forty or sixty seven mile routes through the moderately hilly wine country of the Yadkin Valley. The ride begins with a release of a rehabilitated bird of prey from the Carolina Raptor Center.

Stocked rest stops will be at intervals along the routes as well as SAG support vehicles to help any rider having difficulty completing the ride. The ride is limited to 250 riders

Brandon Hills Vineyard will host complementary wine tasting for riders older than 21 with proof of age when the ride is finished. All riders get a Lincrest Farms Angus Burger while they enjoy live music on the lower patio. All riders will get a ride t-shirt.

Brandon Hills Vineyard is an annual partner of Carolina Raptor Center providing support through the Raptor Ride. Sales of its Raptor Red series of wines provides additional support every year.
