50 miles (45 mile option) Supported Road Cycling Ride 3000 ft elevation gain. Featuring almost 25 miles on the Natchez Trace Parkway, this tour is the shining example of what makes road riding in our area so special. Rolling hills, fantastic scenery, and no commercial vehicles are staples of the Natchez Trace. After spending the first half our ride on the Natchez Trace, the route winds its way to the “hidden gem” community of Leiper’s Fork. From there, we can sample some local BBQ, stop for a quick coffee, or ride on. Riders will then get back on the Trace for the final 10 miles. This is a relatively challenging loop. Experienced cyclists will likely complete the entire route in 3 hours.
I've been riding bicycles in Middle Tennessee for 30 years. I'm an accomplished racer, a master mechanic, and a seasoned veteran in supporting cycling experiences. In short, my life revolves around bicycles and cycling. I've ridden many places in the world, but always look forward to coming home to ride my familiar roads and routes. Let me show you what makes cycling in this area so special.
