Chief Ladiga Cruise Bike Ride

Sunday, May 15, 2022


The 6th Annual Cruise ride offers distances of 12, 25 or 50 miles on the Chief Ladiga rails-to-trail. There will be Rest Stops on the course, which is all on the paved bike path through Alabama's countryside with Dugger Mountain as the backdrop. The Cruise ride is geared for new riders, riders getting back into cycling, Boy Scouts needing that 50-Miler Bike patch, or anyone just looking for a little bit less of a challenge than the Challenge.  For additional information check out the links below.  You must stick to the approved route or you will be disqualified.  For example, travelling past Rest Stop 3 at the stateline will result in a disqualification.


The Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century & ULTRA is a Top Ten Gran Fondo in the US, as ranked by Gran Fondo Guide!
