RIDE YOUR BIKE. RECOMMEND A ROUTE. BECOME A GUIDE.
The Local Routes Project was created to expand our growing list of bicycle routes in the deep south. The goal is to make the best cycling routes available from any location in the southeast. We’re looking for great routes in every area as well as updates to routes already published on SoutheastCyclingRoutes.com
RIDE YOUR BIKE
The simplest way to participate in the Local Routes Project is to ride your bike. Just grab one of the published routes and go, then use the comments section at the bottom of the route when you get back to update route conditions and tell us about your experience.
RECOMMEND A ROUTE
Another way to participate in the Local Routes Project and build up the cycling community in the southeast is to recommend routes for inclusion on the site. We are searching for unique or challenging routes and routes which show off an area’s special character. Point us in the right direction by using the contact form below. We’ll take it from there and give you credit if your suggestion is published.
BECOME AN LRP GUIDE
Local Route Project Guides are contributing authors who provide all the details necessary to publish a route including photos, route summary, highlights and information such as food/water, parking and other logistics. An accurate GPX track and a minimum of five photos of the route will also be required. You will be given full credit if your route is accepted and recognized as an LRP Guide on Southeast Cyclist.com.
Here are a few things to keep in mind.
- We are looking for the best routes, the kind you would ride with your friends if they came to visit for the weekend.
- Routes should be road, gravel and/or mixed-surface. We love MTB and a little bit of singletrack can sauce things up but MTB routes aren’t what this site is about.
- North and South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee only. Thanks!
- Routes should be legally accessibly to cyclists and their bikes. We don’t want anyone to get hurt or in trouble so no stealth shortcuts through private property please. Also let us know if trails or land access requires a permit or are off limits at specific times.
If you’d like become an LRP Guide then send a message using the form below and we’ll get the process rolling (pun).
