Mar 2017 12



The date is officially set for our second attempt at a RAM Cycling ascent to the highest elevation in Tennessee: April 4, 2017. The crew is planning to head down on Monday April 3, ride on Tuesday April 4, and stay to visit the lovely Gatlinburg area for a day before heading home on Thursday.


Ride details are posted on our Strava club page. We will roll out fairly early on Tuesday morning from the east side of downtown Gatlinburg, allowing us a few miles to warm up before the climbing starts at the Sugarlands Visitors Center area. It is about a 20 mile ascent to the top. We plan to take a group pic at the top and head back down. I arramged for a SAG vehicle to follow us and carry any drinks/snacks/clothing that any cyclist joining us may want to have access to. Just bring it to the start point and we’ll carry it for you.


Let’s just hope the weather is more kind to us this time than it was on our first group attempt! Anyone interested in joining us, please contact Tim or me directly for any specific details. Hope to see you there!
