Some issues with road construction had us change the routes a bit from previous years but the course will be well marked to get you to all the places you are meant to be on this beautiful ride.

All routes available with turn by turn instructions on our Ride With GPS  Club Page. 

 

(All mileages are approximate but pretty darn close.)

♣ Slow Roll – 14 miles – Red Road Markings

This lovely route is along pretty roads with one small hill. Be sure you don’t miss the elephant! – One pop-up stop

 

♣ Beginner Friendly – 27 miles – Orange Road Markings

This is a scenic and friendly route which includes 1200 ft of climbing. It will take you through farmlands and out to Neely Henry Lake. Pass roads called Lickskillet. Take your time and visit the historic John Looney cabin. Tie in with friends doing our 14-mile route. Yes, and pass an elephant! – Two pop-up stops and one full rest stop

 

♣ Anniversary Route – 44 miles – Yellow Road Markings

Honoring the 44 years this century has been held this is a pretty and manageable distance to tackle on a bicycle. Only 1500 ft of climbing and takes you to Riddles Bend and over to Steele back to Ashville. Follows the same route as the metric until Ashville. – Two pop-up stops and three full rest stops

 

♣ Metric Century – 68 miles – Green Road Markings

You can claim you’ve ridden a 100! Our pretty metric has a northern loop that takes you to Riddles Bend and then over to Steele and the southern loop takes you to St. Clair Springs, through the Shoal Creek Valley and back to Ashville. The pretty hills will have you climb about 2,300 ft. – Two pop-up stops and four full rest stops

 

♣ Full Century – 105 miles – White Road Markings

Our full century is similar to the metric but splits off to follow a scenic ride through Riddles Bend along the Coosa River up to Rainbow City. After the Steele rest stop it breaks off to ride the base of Chandler Mountain and head out to Camp Sumatanga.  Elevation for this route is just under 4,300 ft. Most important feature of this route is that it includes our Famous Bacon & Tomato Sandwiches. – Two pop-up stops and 6 full rest stops
