The Natchez Trace Century Ride is quickly becoming the largest spring cycling event in Mississippi. Over 700 cyclists each year have jump started their cycling season while discovering our small town charm and hospitality and pedaling on stretches of national scenic byway. This ride starts and ends in Ridgeland and provides an experience for riders of all ages and abilities.

With your choice of distances from 8, 25, 50, 62 and 100 miles with mild to moderate elevation, it is a great ride to find your stride and other specialties along the route. There will be “energizer” stops, food and hands-on fun every 10-15 miles.

There will be a bike giveaway a few minutes before the ride start; all riders are invited to enter the drawing. The winner will be announced before the ride begins at 6:58 a.m.
*Employees of Ridgeland Tourism Commission, City of Ridgeland or Bicycle Revolution not eligible to win.

The Natchez Trace Century Ride will take place on Saturday, May 1st at 7:00 a.m., and will start at the Ridgeland Recreational Center.
