ABOUT THE RIDE 2017
THE BIGGEST CENTURY FIELD IN THE NASHVILLE AREA:
Riders like it for its relative lack of adversity. Novices come to complete their first centuries. Veterans come to set personal records. Hammerheads ride their big chainrings all day long. The scenery is sweet, but you can sum up what everybody likes in two words: easy and fast. Don't you deserve a holiday from climbing every now and then—and from traffic and rough pavement?
THE SUNRISE IS EXACTLY 100.00 MILES LONG:
Calibrated with a Jones-Oerth-Lacroix counter, following the same painstaking procedures as the International Olympic Committee and USATF course certifiers. It begins at Rossview High School and moves clockwise through Montgomery County, Tennessee, and three counties in Kentucky - mainly Todd County but also Christian and Logan.
YOUR FASTEST CENTURY?
It easily could be. It should be, because here, you ride faster by maintaining a steady effort over an easy course, not by taking chances. We don’t encourage reckless riding. We also limit speeds, by avoiding fast downhills. The century course does have a single quarter-mile rise of 66 feet. All the rest are short and shallow. Yes, we support the lead peloton, but THIS IS A TOUR, NOT A RACE. Obey the laws, be courteous, and use common sense. Judicious doesn’t have to mean slow!
