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.

Thanks.

Here's the CBC website ride description. You can call them to check on the ride.

You might also check and see if West Cycles (Farragut) has any rides scheduled.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I will end up doing the CBC ride on Tuesday or Thursday and try to squeeze in the Foothills parkway one day this week as well.
