Fleet Feet Knoxville Racing :: Ride a Century
Many of our FFK Cycling Peeps have indicated an interest in riding a century in the fall. Here is my favorite first-timer century route.
- Start location: Big Turtle Park (BTP), Oak Ridge, TN
- Around 2100 ft of vertical climbing (according to Garmin), making this a very tame century, with most of the climbing around Kingston
- Expect a finish time of 7:05 at 14 mph, excluding stops
- Various opportunities to resupply along the course
- We will plan a progressive set of routes and track progress on GroupMe app; join our group and achieve your goal of riding a century
