The 100 mile ride is the gemstone of the Secret City Century!  The route starts with roads that are quiet, wide open, valley roads.  Around mile 40, the ride begins its' largest and most notable climb, the climb up Big Ridge.  The Big Ridge climb is a one mile climb that averages a 6% grade.  Once the riders descend the Big Ridge climb, they will get to enjoy more of the quiet, wide open, rolling valley roads they started the ride with.  As the riders turn towards Maynardville, they will have to tackle the 1/2 mile Hickory Star climb just before the town.  Once riders pass through Maynardville, they will be on rolling roads and Hollows all the way back to the finish.  The 100 mile route is by-far the most scenic route of the 3 routes, and is mostly a rolling course.  The 100 mile route will have rest stops on mile 22, 39, 55, 73, and 87.  The cutoff time for the 100 mile ride is 5:30pm. 

 

The 100k ride option takes riders through rolling valley roads that are wide open, yet quiet at the same time.  Once the route begins to turn back towards Oak Ridge, riders must tackle the relatively unknown Old Jacksboro Pike climb;  a climb that is 1k long that features percent grades in upwards of 19%!  Once the climb is finished, the riders will begin making their way back towards the finish on roads that are even quieter, more scenic, and forested than the way out!  The 62 mile ride will have rest stops on mile 22, 35, and 49.

 

The 33 mile route that starts from Crafter's Brew in Oak Ridge TN.  The route features wide open, yet quiet, rolling valley roads for the first half of the ride.  Once the route turns and heads back towards the finish, the roads become even quieter, more scenic, and more forested making for an overall amazing ride!!  The 40 mile ride will have a rest stop at mile 13, as well as mile 20.
