Asheville Things To Do: Jerry's Baddle

Today, April 19, why not take a drive and see some of the top flight whitewater, biking, and scenery for which Asheville is known?

Mountain Express provides details of a paddle and peddle race to be held near Saluda today, in and around the famed Green River Narrows, a truly world class steep creek. American Whitewater provides driving directions.

The race is the 3rd annual "Jerry's Baddle", and is named for long time local kayaker Jerry Beckwith. Proceeds benefit ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, which claimed Jerry's life two years ago yesterday. The Green River Access Fund also benefits from the event.

That's Jerry at the right.

Here's a short video of last year's event, 3 minutes 30 second, ENJOY
