Day 1: Meet the group and get ready to ride! Today you’ll get to know Chattanooga on a tour of the city. We’ll see the historic incline, the Riverwalk and iconic Lookout Mountain. On the way back to the Dwell Hotel, we’ll check out the Coker Museum, a cool spot that houses Corky Coker’s personal car collection of over 100 vintage cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, and even 3 airplanes hanging overhead. Get cleaned up at the Dwell, then we’ll head over to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo for cocktails before dinner!
Day 2: This morning we’ll start with a shuttle to Red Clay State Park, where we’ll ride the Red Clay Loop. A favorite with the locals, the Red Clay Loop features some of the best roads in the region, and it offers a glimpse into the region’s past with a stop at Red Clay State Park. The state park visitors center does an excellent job of interpreting the historic significance of the area, which was the last capital of the Cherokee nation before they were forced to head west on the Trail of Tears.
Day 3: Today we’ll cycle the long, narrow Sequatchie Valley. The Sequatchie Valley is a narrow divide between Tennessee’s South Cumberland and Walden’s Ridge. We have a stunning ride planned between the two ridges, where the valley is only 2-3 miles wide. This route is famous in the Chattanooga biking scene for the scenic views and relatively easy grade. Drop into the beautiful valley and get a stunning perspective on this unique geologic feature in Southeast Tennessee.
Day 4: On our last morning, we’ll start our day at Cloudland Canyon State Park. We’ll take a short hike to a waterfall, then take our final ride to Chickamauga Battlefield. In 1863 the Union Army moved south to this battlefield from middle Tennessee to capture the city of Chattanooga, the gateway to the Confederacy.
