About forsythbike


Forsythbike originates from Winston-Salem, NC and is produced with the sole purpose of promoting bicycling in and around this area of the state.  Most of the rides mentioned on the site originate and end in the small community of Lewisville, NC near the town square.  Riders in our area appreciate the acceptance of us by most of the locals there and acceptance is gladly noted.  We strive to be good stewards of this relationship.

This site is under the developmental control of Louis Newton and content appearing on it is his responsibility.  Valuable input and assistance is provided by others, particularly Alan N. who has produced many of the individual maps appearing on the Group Rides list.  David C. has graciously provided many of the photos appearing here as well as some from Alan and the webmaster.  Ownership of individual images remains with each photographer.

Group rides are broadly associated with Hearts Racing Club headquartered at Ken’s Bike Shop in Winston-Salem, NC.  Anyone taking part in the rides listed on this site, or other rides associated with the club, do so at their own risk.  Additionally, rides led by other members of the Hearts club, or their designees, are also at your own risk.

Ride descriptions and distances are as accurate as we can make them.  However, queue sheets and GPS data may vary from what is correct as roads change through time.  Also, GPS data do not always follow what is actually existent.  Use the provided routes and descriptions with this in mind. (But, they are pretty darn close.)

Products, companies and services listed on this site are for information and comparison only.  No inference of endorsement is intended by anyone associated with the club or forsythbike.


Support the Adam Little Foundation: the Adam Little Foundation lobbys to strengthen laws against anyone who harasses, assaults, hits, injures or kills a cyclist.  Adam Little was a husband, father, teacher and avid cyclist from Mt. Pleasant, NC who was struck and killed by a driver whose sentence was reduced to a misdemeanor.  Go to the linked web site to sign a petition calling for stiffer penalties for those who injure or harass cyclists.
