Here are a few more choices for hotels which are location wise awesome, but they unfortunately do not offer a specific Litespeed or TdG discount as we speak. All 4 hotels are in easy walking distance from the finish line and right next to all the bars, restaurants and the aquariums downtown.

Courtyard Marriott
200 Chestnut Str.
423-755-0871

Clarion Hotel
407 Chestnut Str.
423-756-5150

Hilton Garden Inn
311 Chestnut Str.
423-308-9000

Residence Inn Downtown
215 Chestnut Str.
423-266-0600

Plus this bed and breakfast below is close too and has an amazing view over the river.

Bluff View Inn
800-725-8338
www.bluffviewartdistrict.com

Let me know if you guys have other questions in terms of places to go and things to do.

Hope this helps,

Herbert

So what do we win for lightest bike. We totally need to have this, just need a standard, IE 2 cages and a computer or something like that for measurement. Maybe one of the companies on here could donate a cool part!

OK, here is the standard. Oldest, lightest, large sized Litespeed, must be titanium 6.4 tubing. I think I can enter this catagory. 8)

Hello,

Is this gathering open to anyone, or is it by invitation only? I would love to attend. My 14.25 lb Trek 5500 will be heavy compared to all of the ultralight weights there thou.

Thanks,

Tony

I have had the people that were staying with me get a hotel instead so I have room for people if anyone is interested. My place is in downtown on the coarse for stage 3, so you could watch from there or ride to the steep climb of the race within 20 minutes.

Pm me, email or call if you are want a place to stay.

Do we have any part of the schedule set? The weekend might be out for me, but would probably drive up for a day or two. Maybe Wed-Thurs, or Thurs-Fri. Would like to see Litespeed and do some riding and of course meet everyone so as we get closer I'll have to check the order of events. Thanks to everyone doing the planning.

Look on page 4, there is a rough schedule.
- Wednesday night 8:30pm meet and greet at Big River brew pub (possibly a 1.5 hour ride between 6pm and 7:30pm over Scenic Highway up and down Lookout or up and over W-Road on Signal Mtn)
- Thursday 8am factory tour and then get to the top of the climb of the TT stage (Nickajack, GA) which apparently runs between 11am and 3pm. Thursday afternoon the chance to possible ride the Suck Creek Loop or just hang out downtown check out the Aquariums and the finish line festival. Thursday night either Lupi's Pizza or Pisa Pizza (depending on Group size).
- Friday go either see the first mtn stage and ride around there, or watch the start and then go ride elsewhere. Plus .... bla, bla, bla :-)
