Old Country Store Century – 101 Miles – New return route for 2023! The century starts in north Huntsville on Pulaski Pike. It heads directly north on mostly flat roads, but once you get to Tennessee, the character of the route changes dramatically as it heads into the Elk River watershed area. The next 55 miles after Rest Stop #1 are peppered with frequent short hills. The route profile shows approximately 4400 feet of elevation gain. Almost all of it happens between miles 30 and 81. The highlight is the 48 mile Rest stop #3 at the Old Delina Country Store. This is a genuine general store, opened in 1892, a very significant year for the area. It is famous for its burgers and homemade Amish Fried Pies. One of these and the calorie count is sufficient to fuel you all the way to the finish.

Gunter Hollow Super Metric- 74 miles - It's really much hillier for the next 35 miles of the full century route, so this route is mandatory if you reach the turn at Gunter's Hollow after 11 am. You'll reach all the rest stops except #3 and rejoin the main route on Old Railroad Bed Road, with another long, mellow and shady climb to rest stop #4 in Taft, TN.

The Coldwater Metric - 67 miles - The Metric Century departs from the 100-mile route right after the BIG downhill on Red Hill Rd at 30 miles with a left on Molino Rd. Like the Century, the Metric returns to Rest Stop #4 in Taft, TN on Old Railroad Bed Road.

Taste of Tennessee 60-miler. Same new route from 2022! More profile and shade! It departs from 100-mile route shortly after the 2nd rest stop at 26 miles in Kirkland, TN. The 60-miler crosses TN110 on the main Century route and takes the 1st left onto Slatterock Mill Road. The freshly paved road makes a quick curvy descent (Pay attention!) leading to a shady 0.4 mile climb back to Coldwater Creek Rd, just before it plunges down to ride the beautiful road along the creek. The 60-miler rejoins the main route on Old Railroad Bed Road, where another long, mellow and shady climb delivers riders to rest stop #4 in Taft, TN.

The 39-Mile Loop A quick spin around the quiet farming roads northern Madison county up to the TN State Line Rd. Even the shortest route makes it to Tennessee and has two rest stops including the Tomato Basil rest stop #5!
This ride is suitable for families and new riders; not too hilly!
