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.
