    The suggested beginner ride is only 21 miles which can be completed by most riders in 2 hours or less. Adding additional miles or exploring the attractions in Cross Plains will increase the time commitment.

    The trail is officially only 3.5 miles one way, but there is so much to explore along the way, extra time is recommended to allow for stops. With a stop for lunch or ice cream, riders could easily spend even more time along the route.
  10. Cycling to Adams, TN appeals to road cyclists looking to find a quaint stop along the road to refresh and refuel. Local attractions and restaurants provide further opportunities to be diverted on route.

    Averaging 15+ miles per hour with minimal stops will complete the ride in about 3 hours. Riding slower or stopping for lunch, etc. will extend the time proportionately.
