Natchez Trace Century Ride Saturday May 2, 2020 Ridgeland MS

This is still the most organized and supported ride I've ridden. Last year the ride was just an out and back along the Natchez Trace. However so long as road construction doesn't interfere as it did last year, the ride should include routes to Pelahatchie, MS. And that will likely put 65 and 100 milers going up Ware Hill which will have many of us that don't regularly experience steep climbs on our rides ever so briefly wishing we had a lower gear.

The stops will have plenty of food and hydration to fit most any taste and some seem to become their own social event that will surely add a lot of minutes to your total ride time. The lunch at ride completion is usually pretty decent, beers generally can be found if you look for them. The evening meal and prize give-a-way is very often worth going to as well. Even if only to listen to the live music.

Just got email saying it's been re-scheduled for October 10, 2020.

Here is a copy/paste of the notice....

Ridgeland, MS
Sat May 2, 2020

USA Cycling has cancelled the permit for the Natchez Trace Century Ride, as well as all other events through May 3rd.

The well-being of our participants, employees and volunteers are our top priority so, the Natchez Trace Century Ride will be re-scheduled for October 10th, 2020. Participants will be able to transfer their registration to October 10th OR defer registration to May 1st, 2021. We are currently working with BikeSignUp (runsignup) to update registration information. Please allow us until next week to have these changes in place. We will email each participant with instructions on how to make changes when it becomes available.

Thank you so much for your patience as we make these changes and for supporting the Natchez Trace Century Ride.
