Back for its 12th edition, TdRT again offers four route options, highlighted by the 85 mile "Butterfly Gap" route. The usual 31, 50, and 65 mile fully supported rides round out the options. Finisher medals will be awarded to all 85 mile option finishers, and King and Queen of the Mountain award jerseys will again be awarded to the first male and female rider up the world-famous Butterfly Gap climb. Performance ride shirt guaranteed to the first 400, DeFeet TdRT logo socks, logo pint glasses, the usual Barley’s pizza and beer fare, and 2018 Tour de France stage 1 viewing will on the menu once again.
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.
