Latest News

Group rides continue throughout the year. Our “season” is April-November, but as long as there is a decent day each week, we try to offer the opportunity to join a ride.

We are scheduling rides every Tuesday and Thursday. Normally, we have “road” rides, but are going to make a determined effort to schedule gravel-mtb rides at least monthly. Our routes will be mostly in Fairfield Glade and the Crossville area.

There continues to be interest in rides outside of our local community. Cades Cove and the Chattanooga River Walk have been popular in past years. Cades Cove and the Virginia Creeper are now both on the calendar.

In the past, some of us have participated in organized rides, like Cookeville’s Ride to the Sky. We will try to get information about these opportunities out to the larger group as well.
