Route Descriptions

27 Mile Ride

The 27 mile route leaves from the Oak Ridge Senior Center.  The starts on the VERY FLAT, wide open, Oak Ridge Turnpike bike lane.  Once the ride makes its first turn on to Blair road, the route continues to stay flat and becomes even quieter.  The route then makes a small loop in the rural Dyllis community before returning to the start the same way you went out. This is one of the flattest rides you will find in East Tennessee, and a great ride for beginners! A link to the route is just below.

43 Mile Ride

The 43 mile route leaves from the Oak Ridge Senior Center.  The starts on the VERY FLAT, wide open, Oak Ridge Turnpike bike lane.  Once the ride makes its first turn on to Blair road, the route continues to stay flat and becomes even quieter.  The route then takes a right turn on the rolling Old Harriman highway as you make your way to the famous downtown Oliver Springs, where the blockbuster movie October Sky was filmed.  After you ride through Oliver Springs, you will find yourself on Dutch Valley road, home to the smoothest of rollers.  As you begin to return to Oak Ridge, you will find yourself on the very quiet, scenic, and dreamy Bush road.  Unfortunately there is one climb to get over just before you descend back into Oak Ridge for the finish.

62 Mile Ride (100K)

The 62 mile route leaves from the Oak Ridge Senior Center.  The starts on the VERY FLAT, wide open, Oak Ridge Turnpike bike lane.  Once the ride makes its first turn on to Blair road, the route continues to stay flat and becomes even quieter.  As you make your first left turn, you will be treated some of the nicest country roads .  Before you begin to turn towards the rolling roads of East Tennessee, you will have to tackle the relatively short Dicky Valley climb that averages 6%.  The route then rolls on Old Harriman highway as you make your way to the famous downtown Oliver Springs, where the blockbuster movie October Sky was filmed.  After you ride through Oliver Springs, you will find yourself on Dutch Valley road, home to the smoothest of rollers.  As you begin to return to Oak Ridge, you will find yourself on the very quiet, scenic, and dreamy Bush road.  Unfortunately there is one climb to get over just before you descend back into Oak Ridge for the finish.
