Charlotte’s Myers Park neighborhood is home to the original Booty Loop, and July 30-31 it will come alive as the home of 24 Hours of Booty. In parternship with presenting sponsor, Blumenthal Cancer Center, 24 Hours of Booty Charlotte will celebrate its ninth year and host 1,200 riders who will raise more than $1 milllion for cancer research and surviorship.
The Booty Loop in Charlotte is a 2.97 mile loop that is covered by a beautiful canopy of trees and some of the most breath-taking homes in America. The Loop has a great mixture of hills and flats that will challenge riders at every level over the 24 hours. At the center of it all is Bootyville, hosted by Queens University at Charlotte. Bootyville becomes its own little city and also serves as the event headquarters over the 24 hours. Riders set up campsites and canopies where they can sleep, or more importantly, rest and relax with friends off of the bike. The food tent is probably the most popular place outside of the course itself. Along with the three meals riders will receive, they will have access to snacks, energy bars, water and Powerade. Bootyville is also the site of our expo area where our corporate sponsors set up shop and offer a range of services including 24 hour bike support, raffles for special items and information about their services. Because of the Booty Loop’s residential setting, you will find family, friends and Myers Park residents out supporting the riders at all hours.
Along with our national beneficiary, The Lance Armstrong Foundation, 24 Hours of Booty supports the Blumenthal Cancer Center. You can find more information about our beneficiaries in the Learn More section. The organizations are having a tremendous impact on our neighbors battling cancer, and we are proud to be able to support their efforts.
We hope you will join us in Charlotte. Whether you ride, volunteer, donate our come out to cheer, we hope to see you in Myers Park!
