The Loops

All loops begin and end in Chattanooga, Tennessee


Cumberland Plateau Loop

Today’s route was on another beautiful day with scenery that only a few motorcyclists will have the opportunity to experience. I traversed mostly two-lane state highways up and down several mountains and along the banks of the Tennessee River. This loop only takes about four hours to ride, plus the additional time for stops along the way. With that being said, let’s hit the road as I recount today’s ride!
