"The 22nd annual Roan Moan offers a strenuous century and metric century ride, followed by our famous barbecue dinner.
The Century route follows hilly country to a brief course along the Toe and Cane Rivers, then crosses Spivey Gap into Tennessee. Riders explore the streets of Erwin, TN and several open straights before merging with the metric route at Limestone Cove.
Our Metric route includes a series of small climbs, then a 2-mile ascent over Iron Mountain and down to Limestone Cove in Tennessee. Riders then roll along Simmerly Creek and follow back roads to the cool Tweetsie Railroad Grade and Doe River before the 7 mile "Moan" up and over Roan Mountain, where a thrilling descent brings you home."
