The Tour de Moore Classic takes its name and its route from the 100-mile bicycle road race around the perimeter of the county every April. This very challenging ride begins at the Campbell House in downtown Southern Pines and makes a clockwise loop around the county. On the way it passes through the Scottish stronghold of Aberdeen, through Jackson Springs and Eagle Springs on the west side of the county, through pottery country in the northwest corner, and along the northern border with Randolph and Chatham Counties. Just north of Glendon it turns due south, skirting Carthage before heading east to Cameron. From there it swoops south to Lobelia then west through horse country as it returns to the starting point in Southern Pines. Most of this route covers very rural areas with minimal services; plan your trip accordingly, and carry sufficient water and snacks.
