Tour de Franklin (aka Halloween Hunnard)

The season is winding down and, this event has always been a good one to finish it off. It covers some great cycling roads in WNC including a couple nice climbs. Weather forecast is outstanding. If any one is riding this event, I'll be on a white Tarmac with a Smokey Mountain jersey.

Yes this is a great ride. I'm a summer resident of Franklin but will not be there for this ride unfortunately. I did paint the 62 mile route and it's a nice ride.

Are you coming over for the ride Brian? It's a nice ride on rural roads with a couple decent but not too long climbs. The longest climb is around 4 miles at 7% ave grade. The weather should be near perfect. You can tow me around the course!
