Cherohala Challenge in Tellico Plains, East TN

The Smoky Mountain Wheelmen have just opened registration for their 2011 Cherohala Challenge at Active.com. The event will take place in Tellico Plains, TN on June 18. Pre-registration is $45 before May 1, and $50 from May 1 to June 13. Riders will only get a t-shirt if registration is received by May 31. Day-of registration will be $55, but due to the difficulty involved in getting supplies to the remote course, there will be a limit of 400 riders.

There are two courses in this year's event: a 116-mile Challenge and a 62-mile Metric Challenge. This event is, as the name implies, not suitable for novices or the out-of-shape. The 116-mile course has over 9000 feet of climbing, and the 62-miler has around 6000. Both courses will take riders along the scenic Cherohala Skyway through two National Forests to a maximum elevation of 5300 feet.

You can read about the experiences of riders in both 2008 here and in 2009 here, or you can check out the elevation profile for the 116-mile ride here.

The official announcement thread for this event will be at the SMWbike.org website. For a direct link to the thread, click here. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me either here or at the secretary address you can find on our SMWbike.org website.

Hope to see you there!
Art M., Secretary, SMWBC

This is an epic ride! I look forward to doing it again after last year's hiatus.
