Virtual BRAT Lodging
As you've heard, we won't be gathering together in person for this year's BRAT. Instead, the BRAT is coming to you virtually. The purpose of the Virtual BRAT is to encourage our cyclists to keep riding as a group through shared goals, an online community, and even shared routes! This means:
- With your Virtual BRAT registration, you'll receive access to trusted routes from past BRAT rides at multiple Tennessee State Parks.
- You can build your own cycling vacation around the provided routes with lodging at Tennessee State Parks.
- You can still enjoy park activities and guided programs just like you would at the BRAT.
- Take advantage of current accommodation discounts. Find out more here.
To help you explore your options for the Virtual BRAT, we've found lodging for each park offering routes so you can build your own cycling getaway!
Even when we're not together in person, our rider's safety is our top priority. To help keep you safe and on the course during your ride, all of the routes can be downloaded to your phone or Garmin from Ride with GPS. You can also request a pdf version of the routes to be sent to your address here.
With pre-made routes near scenic Kentucky lake and multiple lodging options, you can build your ideal cycling tour at Paris Landing. This park is located less than an hour west of Clarksville.
Located just 40 minutes west of Nashville, the park offers three lakes, shaded bike-friendly roads, and quaint towns to stop at during your ride.
