2023 information:

Race starts 7:00 am Central time

The Cornbread Fondo is a road ride through the beautiful Sequatchie Valley and along the Tennessee River.  The ride covers two states, Tennessee and Alabama.  Both routes will cross the Tennessee River two times. Both routes will have some rolling hills, but no sustained climbing will be on either route.  Although both routes will ascend the famous Ladds Mountain (a regionally famous, short stinger).

Each route is fully marked and staffed with SAG stops.  Each route will also have a lead-out vehicle for the entirety of the route as well as a roving SAG for the long course.  Each course will also have a sweep vehicle

Each participant will receive a Cornbread Fondo T-shirt and two entry tickets to the National Cornbread Festival. New this year: we are adding a post-ride meal that will be served at the start/finish line along with live music.  The meal is provided by Stevarinos Italian Eatery.

As with last year, we have a timed king/queen of the mountain segment on the ride (stay tuned for the details on that segment).  Each course will ride this segment.  A prize will be awarded to top male and female on this segment.
