Natchez Trace Century Ride

Saturday, May 4, 2019

The Natchez Trace Century Ride is quickly becoming the largest spring cycling event in Mississippi. Over 700 cyclists each year have jump started their cycling season while discovering our small town charm and hospitality and pedaling on stretches of national scenic byway. This ride starts and ends in Ridgeland and provides an experience for riders of all ages and abilities.

Spring brings warmer temperatures in Mississippi…the glimmering waters and abundant wildlife around the Ross Barnett Reservoir will enhance the journey. Countryside stretches in Madison County and Pelahatchie steady the pedals for reflection, and around town spins delight with discovery of each place.

With your choice of distances from 25, 50, 62 and 100 miles with mild to moderate elevation, it is a great ride to find your stride and other specialties along the route. There will be “energizer” stops, food and hands-on fun every 10-15 miles.

And you won’t want to miss “Rockin’ After the Ride!” Admission to Rockin’ After the Ride is open to all registered cyclists and one guest. Tickets will be distributed at registration. Rockin’ After the Ride, presented by Visit Ridgeland, is from 5:00-6:30 p.m. on May 4th.

The Natchez Trace Century Ride will take place on Saturday, May 4 at 7:00 a.m., and will start at the Ridgeland Recreational Center. Your registration fee includes Welcome Party on Friday evening, ride, event t-shirt, post-ride meal and post-ride social.

 The Natchez Trace Century Ride is an event of Ridgeland Recreation & Parks.
