Southern Alabama Lowlands Traverse
This route is the final connection needed between the Southern Highlands Traverse and the Western terminus of the Florida Divide. This will possibly be an alternate route to the forthcoming Eastern Divide Trail.
The route is steeped in history as it follows 254 miles of remote dirt and paved country roads through the heart of Alabama
The Dirty 130 is a classic Southern Appalachian gravel route that starts and finishes in Reliance, Tennessee. It's a beast of a route! Climbs such as Kimsey, Starr, Buck Bald, and Ditney Mountains one right after another challenging even the best riders. There is true beauty amongst all the climbing. Magnificent vistas, lush enchanting forests, open rolling fields, and time forgotten history abound in these often overlooked mountains of southeast TN and southwest NC. The route is 80% gravel and 20% pavement. The Dirty 130 is truly a one of a kind route that will keep even the most hardened gravel rider entertained.
Death March Revival
The Death March has been, and will continue to be, the Ultimate Gravel Grinder in the Southeast! It has been the testing ground for up and coming racers and seasoned pros alike. Riders would train on the gravel section of the old Cohutta 100 route that was affectionately dubbed "The Death March". Over the years, the Cohutta 100 course was revised and the Death March seemed to fade into the history books.
The time has come for the REVIVAL!
The Death March Revival is a 88 mile, Ultra Endurance route revised to boast over 12,000 feet of climbing.
Vista 300/Mountain 420
The VISTA is a 300 mile bikepacking adventure. It has some the best singletrack, vistas, gravel, and roads that Cherokee National Forest and the surrounding area have to offer. Spanning several mountain ranges and watersheds, this loop starts and finishes on the banks of the Hiwassee river in Reliance, Tenn.
The MOUNTAIN 420 is an expanded version of the VISTA 300. It ventures deep into the Cohutta's and Chattahoochee National Forest. The two main outposts along this route are Hiwassee Whitewater Company/Flip Flop Burgers and Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way. The additional singletrack included in the 420 is Mountaintown creek, Pinhoti 1, 2,3,4, and Dennis Mill sections.
