The Randolph County Classic offers 82.4 miles of beautiful scenery, interesting attractions, and challenging hills. Starting in downtown Asheboro, the seat of Randolph County, the route heads east to the town of Staley on the border of Chatham County. Taking a southwestern direction from Staley, the route cuts a diagonal line toward the southernmost point of Seagrove, stopping for a visit at the North Carolina Zoological Park. From there it heads west into the Uwharrie National Forest, where you can see one of the last remaining wooden covered bridges in North Carolina and the North Carolina Aviation Museum with vintage World War II aircraft. The route then curves north, then east, past Lake Lucas to return to downtown Asheboro via less traveled streets. The remnants of an ancient mountain range make the county very hilly. The southern part of the county is less populated and therefore has fewer services, so you need to take plenty of snacks and water with you.
