Join us in our annual celebration of the fall season! We invite you ride back in time as you climb the old logging road to the hundred plus year old historic 900-foot long Nada Tunnel, enter into the valley of the Red River Gorge where you will roll through towering cliffs and massive boulders formed seven million years ago, ride past wonders of nature Raven Rock, Chimney Top Rock and Tower Rock, as you climb your way up to Sky Bridge for a snack. Ride the ridges of Pine Ridge, past Parched Corn Creek and Zachariah.Finish the 38 mile hilly loop back at Natural Bridge or continue on to Lee County and into the charming town of Beattyville and back for the 65 mile loop.
Come and join our Sunday ride. You have four great routes to choose from: 34, 42, 43 & 50 miles. The 34 & 42 mile routes are rolling and scenic with a few climbs, while the 43 & 50 mile routes are more challenging with a number of tougher climbs that take you to Furnace KY in Estill County! The 42 and 50 mile routes will have riders pedaling through Clay City KY, before crossing the Red River and rolling back up the valley.
