BRAT 2012 is Sept. 8-15, 2012

Welcome to the 23rd annual Bicycle Ride Across Tennessee (BRAT 2012). This seven-day ride will start at Cumberland Mountain State Park in Crossville, TN and features a combination of rolling hills, valleys, and some flat terrain. The tour will include a balance of some long-distance rides and some short distance days – designed to challenge expert cyclists, while accommodating recreational riders.
Riders will camp overnight at four Tennessee State Parks along the route, including Cumberland Mountain, Standing Stone, Pickett, and Harrison Bay State Park’s. The City of Kingston will host one overnight stay at Fort Southwest Point. One layover day is planned at Cumberland Mountain State Park, giving cyclists an opportunity to sightsee – including nature hikes and canoeing. Also a three-day ride option is available for those who aren’t ready for a weeklong tour or have limited vacation time.
Daily mileage ranges from 70 miles on the first and longest leg of the route to 52 miles on the final day.
