Join us as we tour four counties of scenic Middle Tennessee and visit historic Lynchburg home of Jack Daniel Distillery. This ride has something for everyone - beautiful scenery, great food and lots of fun. Folks from 7 to 70+ years young find this event one they make sure to attend.
At this event you'll enjoy some of the most beautiful and challenging routes middle Tennessee has to offer. We make every effort to improve the Elk River Valley 100 from year to year based on comments from riders so for this year we've overhauled the 100 mi route and increased the variety and quantity of snacks at all the food stops. Of course, we'll continue our tradition of unique goodies and bratwurst dinner too, so come on out and enjoy what's sure to be one of the finest bicycling events you'll participate in.
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.
