In the heart of the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains about an hour east of Chattanooga, Tennessee, lies the tiny community of RELIANCE. Perched on the banks of the Hiwassee River, Reliance serves as a gateway to hundreds of miles of incredibly scenic gravel roads in the Cherokee National Forest, and we're excited to showcase this outdoor mecca with a weekend of gravel grinding fun April 27-28, 2024! Registration for this deep woods gravel grinder is capped at 200 total riders and no more than 150 male participants.
Plus a Coolest Bike Contest based on our completely subjective judgement...
