Description

Saturday, May 6, 2017

The Natchez Trace Century Ride is quickly becoming the largest spring cycling event in Mississippi. Over 700 cyclists each year have jumpstarted their cycling season while discovering our small town charm and hospitality and pedaling on stretches of national scenic byway. This ride starts and ends in Ridgeland and provides an experience for riders of all ages and abilities.

Spring brings warmer temperatures in Mississippi…the glimmering waters and abundant wildlife around the Ross Barnett Reservoir will enhance the journey. Countryside stretches in Madison County and Pelahatchie steady the pedals for reflection, and around town spins delight with discovery of each place.

With your choice of distances from 25, 50, 62 and 100 miles with mild to moderate elevation, it is a great ride to find your stride and other specialties along the route. There will be “energizer” stops, food and hands-on fun every 10-15 miles.

And you won’t want to miss “Ridgeland Rockin’ after the Ride” a celebration of a successful ride with culinary delights, toe-tapping music and stories to take home. There will be door prizes galore and the chance to win the grand prize giveaway of a bike. Post-ride social presented by Ridgeland Tourism Commission.

The Natchez Trace Century Ride will take place on Saturday, May 6 at 7:00 a.m., and will start at the Ridgeland Recreational Center. Your registration fee includes Welcome Party on Friday evening, ride, event t-shirt, post-ride meal and post-ride social. Registration fees are: $35 (January 6-31), $45 (February 1-April 6), $55 (April 7-May 4), $65 (May 5-6). Online registration will close at 11:59 p.m. on May 4. When you register for the ride, be sure to order your Natchez Trace Century Ride jersey for $55. Supplies are limited and they are sure to run out, so be sure to register early to make sure you get this cool collectible.
