Stories, information and comments from Roan Mountain climbers
Story by Jeffrey from Kingsport, United States, submitted on 27/01/2014
I took up cycling while living in Chicago. Thought I was in good shape before moving to TN, and boy did Roan make me think twice about that. I''ve done the TN side multiple times now and love the ride. There is a lot of shaded parts so sun exposure is not bad and early in the season kind of welcome. At the start is the state park with plenty of parking as well as facilities. The traffic is almost zero and locals seem used to sharing the road with cyclists. All in it''s a great ride with great views difficult for beginners but average for seasoned climbers.
