We hope this page can help you find some fun ways to enjoy your bicycle!
This page might stretch on for a bit, but hopefully you can find some great resources in here! We've posted maps, cue sheets and links. We've been collecting these items for years, so we apologize up front that there is no standard format! We've included some of our favorite routes and have tried to group these by start locations. You may print your route sheet from directly below if interested.
Distances: 12, 32 and 62 mile routes
Start: Hillsboro Elementary School
5412 Pinewood Road, Franklin, TN 37064
The routes pass little country stores every 15 miles or so. Bring food in your jersey pockets and change or a crisp dollar bill to buy a drink on the porch if the store is closed. Some of these stores also have taps available. Mr. Fly's store is always open and is used for the stop halfway through the 32 mile route and at mile 43 of the 62 mile route. Route markings: We marked these routes in Sep 2012 - Some of the arrows are still there... Once you get started, you can follow the small fluorescent green arrows for your chosen route. If there is a chance that you would be confused, the marking may have a letter to confirm your chosen distance ( 12 mile is short or "S", 32 mile is medium or "M", 62 mile is Long or "L"). The 32 and 62 mile routes often share certain roads, so don't panic if you see markings across the way.
Approximately 70 Miles, Dog Creek
Head south to Hickman County and explore a world of excellent roads south of Highway 7. Roll along some rippling backroads where you may not see a car for 5 miles at a time. Some of these roads are out of our gran fondo route, but we promise there is no dirt/chirt/gravel! If you love limestone bluffs and running along a creek in the shade, then you will love this. There are a couple of bumpy roads, but with a single file approach to enable you to choose your line, you will love them! Some of our roads to get you beyond Highway 7 are the familiar stuff, but the new stuff will be well worth the commute!
Approximately 36 Miles - Puppy
The shorter route shares the same roads as the long route for the first 15 miles or so. As we approach Fly, Tn, the shorter route will head to a store stop and then cover the last 20 miles of the longer route for a total of 36 miles.
