Cleveland TN...

Hey guys...

My wife and I will be heading down to Cleveland to do some riding and visiting. My wife has an aunt and uncle in town and we've been going down pretty regularly to do some riding. We first started with mountain biking at the Occee Whitewater center and Chilhowee, but have now since switched to road biking.

We're looking for some ride routes in the area, or anyone that might be interested in hooking up for a ride. We'll be arriving in town on Friday May 16th and leaving town on the Monday...We'll be heading to Rome, GA for there...We're hooking up some ride buddies down there to tour the area.

I've checked out the Chatbike site and grabbed the Cleveland routes from there (we did those the last time we were down). I've also looked at MapMyRide and found a few rides there. Only issue is not being certain of road conditions for those routes.

We're all set with bike shops, since we've been down a few times. We always stop in at Scotts and David knows us by name. We also are starting to get familiar with Trailhead since they are a Specialized shop and we ride Specialized.

Any leads would be appreciated...

Rich

I have ridden Hwy. 11/64 between Cleveland and Chattanooga. It is not especially wide, but traffic was light, too. It parallels I-75. If there were a traffic problem on I-75, some traffic might exit and use 11/64 as an alternate route. I have also been away from that part of the country for more than a dozen years, so some things may have changed.

You may want to talk to someone in Chatt Bike Club. Daisy Brider should be able to give you information you need or at least redirect you to someone who could.
