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.

Spring brings warmer temperatures in Mississippi…the glimmering waters and abundant wildlife around the Ross Barnett Reservoir will enhance the journey. Countryside stretches in Madison County steady the pedals for reflection, and around town spins delight with discovery of each place.

With your choice of distances from 8, 25, 50, 62, 67 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.

Registration to attend, defer or transfer the ride will be October 14th.
The ride is restricted to the first 500 people

There will not be a “Rockin’ After the Ride” party this year but, we will still be giving away a bike to one lucky participant. The winner will be announced before the ride begins at 7:00 a.m.

The Natchez Trace Century Ride will take place on Saturday, October 17 at 7:00 a.m., and will start at the Ridgeland Recreational Center.
