The Tour de Blount returns on May 20, 2023!
We are excited to partner with Mountain Challenge at Maryville College to host our 2023 event. The in-town start will provide us with 3 routes to meet the interest levels of all participants.
The Tour de Blount was started by three cyclists back in 1991. They loved cycling and knew that the Blount County area was one of the best areas to ride. This was well before the day of organized bike rides, triathlons and road races. The TdB was to be the first bike ride in the area. The Tour de Blount quickly caught on and it became a popular event among cyclists, in part because Blount County and its rural back roads, ever-changing terrain and beautiful scenery is considered one of the best places to ride in the country.
