The Highland Rim Bicycle Club presents a very special edition of the Elk River Valley 100 for your participation this year. A distinctive experience awaits riders in 2016, as we traverse our well-loved century, metric century, and short routes with retired professional riders George Hincapie and Christian Vande Velde. Conquer local favorite climbs like Hilltop and the ascent up to New Herman, and see the amazing late summer scenic beauty of Southern Middle Tennessee, all while enjoying arguably the best food stops and SAG support around. The club is revamping the finish line and festivities to ensure an exciting end to your day in the saddle, with lunch for riders and fun activities for family members. Registered riders will have a chance to win stunning prizes, including a Gold Level registration for the Hincapie Gran Fondo in Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina.
Registration is limited to the first five hundred riders. Don’t miss out on this historic running of the Elk River Valley 100. Be sure to check out erv100.org for more details.
