The 25-Mile Challenge riders will meet in the parking lot of the stadium at 8:15. We will load your bikes into trucks, you will board the school bus(es) at 9:15 and depart at 9:30 for the trip to the start of your ride — at Shellmound Campground. Once there, you may begin your ride, which is the last 25 miles of the Metric Route from mile 2 onward.
The route has NO mountain climbs and travels roads of Tennessee. While it is a mostly flat course, there are a few challenging hills.
Riders will return to the stadium via Cummings Highway (which will be partially coned for safety). Updated route is 27.3 miles.
