King and Queen of the Mountain award jerseys will again be awarded to the first rider up The Gap. NO CENTURY option in 2017, with 85/Butterfly Gap route the featured distance. Super stocked rest stops on all routes ~ every 15 miles. Performance ride shirts, ride logo socks, & logo pint glasses guaranteed to the first 400 registered cyclists. The usual Barley’s pizza and beer fare, along with 2017 Tour de France stage 1 viewing will on the post ride menu once again. Expected participation--450
30 mile route—big change will be the 30 miler heading south on Martin Mill along with the longer rides. More scenic route than in previous years, slightly increased difficulty.
50/62 mile routes—similar to previous years—rolling routes that head south to Blount Co. No major climbs, but not easy routes. An additional rest stop has been added to both routes (3 RS's for the half century and 4 for the metric)
85 mile route—62 route continues south to Townsend for a scenic loop in the shadow of the Smokies. Much flatter terrain compared to the century route, with no major climbs. Five rest stops available.
The ride finishes with a post-ride party second to none, featuring pizza, beer, and Day 1 of Tour de France viewing at Barley's.
