Tennessee with Gary Taufer

Tennessee is home to some of the best things in the world. Dolly Parton, Graceland and of course the stunning natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains to name a few highlights.

This week, Gary Taufer shares with us a few more highlights from the region in this visual feast of riding.

A tightly curated selection of three routes which includes some hilly and scenic options to keep the legs turning over when the mercury drops.

You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App or by searching Taufer.

EAST MILLERS COVE ROAD

An Out-and-Back loop route on a narrow country road for most of the ride, with low traffic, shade, and alongside a stream for several miles. The route parallels one section of the Foothills Parkway and offers plenty of climbing efforts. The climbs are much shorter than the Foothills but still quite challenging, several with gradients over 10%.

BALD RIVER FALLS

A scenic ride starting at the Cherohala Skyway Visitor Center. The ride takes us along the Tellico River up a constant gradual ascent, nothing greater than 6%, to the Bald River Falls in the Cherokee National Forest. This is a versatile ride that could be used with interval workouts, sprints or a recovery ride.

BUTTERMILK ROAD

Buttermilk Road is a country road popular with cyclists and used by many local bike shop group rides. Sections of this route are regularly used in organized events. You can see the lollipop markings on the road of one of the most recent events. The route is an out and back loop that begins just outside of Farragut and leads to the west end of the road. The climbs on this route are not very long but a few of them reach over 10% grade, most of them in the first and last 10Km/6 miles. It's a quiet road, not very much traffic, on a warm mid-fall day so enjoy the fall colours.
