2022 Out-of-Town 6 Day Tennessee Excursion
The out of state trip was declared a rousing success by all. It was a first for some to ride with a tour outfitter and we chose well with Carolina Tailwinds Bicycle Tours. Our guides were fun and attentive to all details (even changing flats) as we navigated the smooth roads of Middle Tennessee. Greg and Jeff received a solid thumbs up for the mid-ride snacks complete with Moon Pies, Nutter Butters, fresh fruit, and drinks with ice for water bottles. The terrain was beautiful with a combination of green, gently rolling hills and a few challenging climbs. With morning and afternoon rides, cyclists were able to choose their distance and difficulty, but the average distance was 50 miles a day and 2,500’ of elevation.
The accommodations of boutique hotels were top-notch including delicious meals and quaint lodging. Our last hotel included hiking with waterfalls tucked into the surrounding Tennessee forest. Another special stop was the tour of Jack Daniels distillery in Lynchburg, TN and learning the history of filtered moonshine
Next year is scheduled to be an in-state out-of-town event. The Bike Committee is considering a trip associated with a supported ride and then additional club rides will fill out the weekend. Look for more information after the first of the year.
