UPDATE 2/26/2017 – Unfortunate circumstances beyond the control of the Chattanooga Bicycle Club have forced a change to the routes of this year’s Litespeed Bicycles 3 State 3 Mountain Challenge. A late developing scheduling conflict in Dade County GA has resulted in traffic control and safety support being unavailable for this year’s ride. The Dade Co. Sheriff’s Department has been helpful in making our event as safe as possible for several years. We appreciate their assistance in the past and look forward to working with them again in the future. However, without their support this year, the State of Georgia will not issue a permit for the portion of the century course that occurs in Georgia.
Therefore, the traditional routes for the 2017 Challenge have been modified. Sadly, the impact is greatest to the Century riders and their ascent of the infamous Burkhalter Gap, which will not be part of the century course this year. We appreciate your understanding.
See the Courses section for more details about the routes.
Join the Chattanooga Bicycle Club, as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Tennessee’s biggest bike ride.
Choose the Century Challenge with 7100’ of climbing or take on the Metric course with 4000’ of elevation. The 25 mile route tours Tennessee with a proﬁle that is a little more beginner friendly with 1400′ of climbing. Read more>>
