what kind of ride are you looking for? Im actually in knoxville and could probably help you find something decent.
I was looking for a group ride (20+ mph) over the weekend but I went to the smokies and did the cades cove loop a couple of times on Saturday instead. I did find a ride out of Cedar Bluff Cycles on Tuesday evening that I am going to try to do - know anything about it? I am also going to try to get out to the foothills parkway as well.
Otherwise if you know of anything I would appreciate any ideas. I'll be leaving town on Friday morning so anything for next weekend is out.
