The Highland Rim Bike Club was organized in 1974 and in September of that year conducted the first edition of the Elk River Valley 100.
The route has always been in the vicinity of the Elk River, hence the name. The first version of the ride had no appreciable climbing. Constructive criticism caused us to add considerable climbing challenges around the Cumberland Plateau.
Our emphasis remains in sponsoring a well-supported, low-key, and enjoyable event for riders of all abilities.
