This was my first BRAT ride, and I had been looking forward to it for a few years, and it EXCEEDED my expectations. It was well organized, well staffed SAG stops with good options to eat, YOGA by a former cyclist, nightly entertainment, great protection from state park rangers, good food, ....I can’t recommend it more highly!!!!"
"I started riding the BRAT when it started in 1987 as one of the youngest riders at 33 years old. I haven’t missed a ride yet. It's one of the best week-long rides anywhere with amazing support from the staff and Rangers. Wouldn’t miss it!"
"Thanks to signing up for Bicycle Ride Across Tennessee (BRAT), I had a September riding goal. 688 miles. I completed the challenge today with a 50 mile ride. Explored a new route which resulted in seeing muralists from Paint Memphis. Mile 47/689 (thumbs up photo) I was at Riverfront Park to see how a Memphis Public Libraries story time was going. Can’t believe I pedaled 693 miles in 27 days!"
"Best support, best state parks, best routes, best food and beer, and best bike camaraderie. Thanks for a great week!"
"BRAT is one of the most well organized and scenic rides that I've done. The Staff for the ride are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Lots of interesting and friendly riders do the ride year after year."
"Staff was helpful, food was great. Parks were beautiful. Great tour!"
