Tour de Rocky Top


Location: Barley’s Old City, 200 E Jackson Ave
Knoxville, TN


Tour de Rocky Top is back for it’s 16th edition, with significant route changes due to Foothills Parkway construction. Replacing Butterfly Gap this year is a full century route, with Century Finisher medals replacing Butterfly Gap medals. Redesigned 31, 53, 62, & 81 mile routes are also on offer for this year!

All routes are sagged by Race Day Events crew and local bike shops, with at least 10 vehicles on course for support. Fully stocked aid stations await riders along the course and the finish will feature Barley’s Pizza (all you can eat) and two complimentary beers. Post ride entertainment will include stage 2 of the 2022 Tour de France on the big screen. All participants receive an official Tour de Rocky Top soft cotton tee, a pair of DeFeet logo socks, and a commemorative TdRT pint glass.
