The Loops

All loops begin and end in Chattanooga, Tennessee


East Valley Road Loop

After completing a few of the more physically and mentally demanding loops I was ready for today’s less demanding and more relaxing ride. I spent the day either riding the stretched out two-lane highways or beautiful secluded country roads. In the most rural section I had to be careful to watch for gravel washed out in the road from driveways and for dogs that may not be in fenced-in yards. The only part of the route that required special riding skills was the descent down Dayton Mountain, which for a short distance is laced with sharp curves. This loop is one that can easily be done between breakfast and lunch or between lunch and supper. Come join me as we take a relaxing ride through the country!
