Bicentennial Mall State Park Downtown Nashville

Welcome to the 19th Annual Bicycle Ride Across Tennessee (BRAT)!
September 14-20, 2008

The 2008 BRAT will begin in upper east Tennessee at Warriors Path State Park. The terrain on this year's route will vary greatly each day. There will be  hills, mountains and even some flat terrain. This years BRAT will be more Mountainous than the past years. Long graded climbs will abound.  Expect beautiful rural Tennessee scenery and back roads, a promise the BRAT keeps every year!

Tennessee State Parks, Tennessee Department of Transportation, and the Cumberland Trail Conference sponsor the Bicycle Ride Across Tennessee. A portion of proceeds from the event will go to The Cumberland Trail Conference (CTC), a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation and preservation of Cumberland Trail State Park.
