ABOUT THE RIDE

Come experience our scenic low volume roads that showcase the upper Cumberland and Cumberland plateau region. With a party at the end sponsored by local craft brewing companies. Live music and hand crafted BBQ post ride. Please register at Active.com and be sure to register early.

 

3 routes to choose from: 20 mile , 40 mile and 75 mile.

 

20-Mile Route:

 

Fall rides in the Upper Cumberland region are special. After a 6-mile warm up of gently rolling terrain the route will take a challenging, but gradual turn toward the sky. Over the next mile you will gain 376’ of elevation to be rewarded with a gently rolling route on the plateau above Cookeville, TN. Great road surfaces and beautiful fall views will take you back to the top of the earlier climb for a winding decent back toward Algood and Cookeville, TN. A total of 862 feet of climbing at an average grade of 2% (stretches up to 6%) will prepare you for the after-ride food and beverages.

 

40-Mile Route:

 

Double the distance and 3X the total climbing Vs. the 20-mile route. You will feel like you have ridden to the sky with a total ascent of 2,399’. Challenge yourself with this scenic fall route that includes plenty of rolling terrain plus short climbs with grades of 3% up to 11% (briefly).  Enjoy the after-ride food and beverages. You’ve earned it!

 

75-Mile Route:

 

Bring strong legs and lungs on this epic route. Keep your eyes open too as the fall views are outstanding. With 5,600’ of total ascent you will be in the sky – maybe above the clouds. This is an adventure route. The best way to get to the signature Cub Mtn. climb is via a 5-mile stretch of smoothly packed gravel road. Take it easy on the gravel and conserve energy for the 1-mile climb at mile 32. Cub Mtn. could give you a nose bleed on a brief stretch with a grade of 18%. Don’t feel bad if you decide to walk a few feet of it, but we want you to dig from within. Once you conquer this climb – remember there are 4 significant climbs – you are rewarded with a smooth and curvy descent and still more rollers back to the Dogwood Park. Put on your feedbag with the post-ride food and beverages.

 

All routes start and finish at the same location at Dogwood Park in downtown Cookeville.
