Cycling season in Cades Cove is winding down

In case you wanted to get one last bike ride around the Cades Cove Loop Road without having to fight automobile traffic, you better hurry. The last day for the road being closed to motor vehicles on Wednesday and Saturday mornings is September 22.

In other words, there are only four more opportunities left this year.

On each Wednesday and Saturday mornings throughout the summer, the Cades Cove Loop Road is closed to motor vehicles until 10:00 a.m. to allow pedestrians and cyclists to enjoy the cove.

As I mentioned in a post earlier this summer, other than walking it, biking the loop is the absolute best way of seeing Cades Cove - especially since the road has been repaved.

For more information on bicycling in Cades Cove, and other areas in and just outside of the park, please click here.

We did. There were a lot of rentals breaking down so I'm glad we did. We're planning a trip back up there in the spring. It was just breath-taking and I would have never even known about this without your post!
