BRAT is week long bicycle tour in mid September across Tennessee. The route changes each year, but typically begins in a state park and ends at the same state park. The route is typically a figure 8 loop in one of the grand divisions of the state (West, Middle, East).


The tour ends each day in a Tennessee State Park. Each host park provides entertainment and food for riders each day, as well as intrepretive programs about the purpose of the park your staying at.


Tennessee State Park Rangers offer Route safety and support along the route.  Volunteeers and employees also provide SAG support along the route each day to transport cyclists as needed due to mechanical problems or injuries. They also carry water and generally have a floor-pump handy for those repairing a flat along the route.
