The 2021 Cherohala Challenge is Cancelled

We'll be back in JUNE 25, 2022!

Join us on an Upcoming Ride!

We host many rides per week and visitors are always welcome.

Monday: Road ride typically in Oak Ridge area.

Wednesday: Gravel rides, mainly over Rich Mountain to Cade's Cove in the summer months.

Friday: Road ride typically in Knoxville area.

These are standing road rides but always check the SMW Facebook page for details each week which will detail ride leader, start time and exact location.

Depending on who shows, we plan diverse lengths and divide into groups depending on riders' skills and experience.

If it is raining or other adverse weather conditions exist, the rides will not take place.

 Coming Soon to a Wheelmen Meeting


We will be enlightened by Mr. Eddie Sloan, owner of Bike Domesestique.

If you are suffering from numb hands or toes, knee pain, lower back pain, shoulder discomfort or any number of other aches and pains after riding your bike, it is likely due to improper bike fit. Getting a professional bike fit is one of the most commonly skipped steps when buying a new bike, but it is one of the most important.                                              

This topic is pertinent for all riders and we welcome ALL cyclist and their guests. We'll gather for social time and a brief meeting at 6:30 with presentation and dinner around 7:00 pm.

The Wheelmen are a welcoming group of cyclist who promote safe and fun riding in East Tennessee. To keep our programming affordable to all members and non-members alike, we have dinner dutch treat.

Current Club Members Who Paid Dues for 2020 are Automatically Renewed for 2021! 

We hope to start our informative, fun and social monthly meetings sometime later in 2021.

We all miss you!!
