Description

Tour de Crackers Neck 2021
As always, Tour de Cracker’s Neck 2021 is located in the small town of Big Stone Gap, VA. This is the 10th Annual Tour de Cracker’s Neck bike race. It begins at the legendary Bullitt Park home of some of the best high school football in the state with long history of state championships. Leaving Bullitt Park the ride continues through the heart of the town leading toward the valley where you will find scenic mountains and winding roads. This ride does not have any major climbs but variable elevation with rolling hills around every corner. This event is for the all types of riders and while it’s on an open road the Big Stone Gap Police Department help in busy intersections providing safety at most turns. Come out and support this year’s Tour de Cracker’s Neck.
While in town come visit the Southwest Virginia Museum to experience the town’s story first-hand. There are many attractions such as historic home of John Fox Jr., the June Tolliver House, the 101 Historic Traincar, or the Lonesome Pine School and Heritage Museum.
After Tour de Cracker’s Neck, cool down on the Greenbelt on the scenic Powell River. Go hiking and nearby Roaring Branch in the Jefferson National Forest, or enjoy the other national forest sites that surround Big Stone Gap! Play a round of golf at the Lonesome Pine Country Club or take short trip to Natural Tunnel State Park and view the Eighth Wonder of the World. Hear Old-Time and Bluegrass music at various venues in the area along the Crooked Road! Big Stone Gap is the perfect place for your mountain vacation!
