Route details:

The ride begins with rolling well-kept farm country, then enters Tennessee on mostly flat roads up to the first rest stop. After the rest stop the route becomes rolling with a few longer climbs, the longest climb leading up to the northern most point of the route up along the Crystal Ridge.

Turning south the road gradually descends for several miles before climbing back up just before the second rest stop. After the second rest stop the route is mostly rolling all the way back to New Market.

The New Market BBQ is a great place to eat after the ride but there are no restrooms. It's located a quarter mile north of the school on the west side of Winchester road.

The total elevation gain for this ride is 1,700', starting at 750' with a maximum elevation of 1,060'.
