Bike Ride | Farm-to-Table Feast | Outdoor Expo
- Celebrate scenic Southeast Tennessee with a bike ride on quiet roads in the most picturesque valley in the South followed by a farm-fresh feast and outdoor expo! Join us Saturday, October 3rd for the Cycle Sequatchie Century & 3 Mtn Challenge and discover why Sequatchie Valley is Chattanooga's cycling playground! #CycleSequatchie
Choose your own adventure with five base routes and three optional climbs, giving you a total of 19 different ways to enjoy the scenery! With distances ranging from a relaxed 15 miles to the full 103-mile Three Mountain Challenge presented by Village Volkswagen, there's something for everyone! (We've even got a free 3-mile ride on Dunlap's Coops Creek Greenway Saturday morning at 9:00!)
Reward yourself after the ride with a farm-to-table buffet featuring fresh food from local farms like Sequatchie Cove Farm, along with world-famous pies and desserts from the Cookie Jar Cafe. Plus beer from some of our favorite Chattanooga breweries along with fresh-pressed cider from Wheeler's Orchard!
After you're done with the ride, check out the free Outdoor Expo presented by Thrive Regional Partnership at the finish line from 10:00 to 3:00. Not only will the expo feature local outdoor recreation clubs and retailers, but we'll also give you the opportunity to discover what's available at area parks and learn about regional conservation efforts to keep this beautiful part of the Chattanooga region a natural treasure!
Come in a day early and take on a killer climb at Friday's Jasper Highlands Hill Climb! Or skip the climb and just join us for the party at the top presented by Tower Community Bank. We'll have prizes for those brave enough to do the climb, and beer & food for everyone at the Top of the Rock Restaurant & Brewery. Festivities kick off at 2:00 p.m. Friday October 2nd. Find the details on the Friday Hill Climb page!
It's more than a bike ride! Besides great cycling, Sequatchie Valley and the South Cumberland Plateau offer plenty of fun non-cycling attractions too, including two special events going on the same weekend as the ride - the Pikeville Fall Festival and the Sequatchie Cove Farm Tour & Lunch.
