**2018 Trail of Tears Commemorative Motorcycle Ride Information - Below is the 2017 Information

Trail of Tears Ride General Info

The Trail of Tears Remembrance Ride organized by the Trail of Tears Remembrance Association, Inc. held their last ride in 2013. That being said, the event is still held by other promoters including by the AL-TN Trail of Tears Corridor Association, Inc., which has held their Ride since 1994.

The annual motorcycle ride is held to commemorate the forced relocation of American Indians. In 1830 the Indian Removal Act called for the relocation of all Indians from the eastern US to Oklahoma whether it was voluntary or forcible. In 1838, the deadline for the Indians to voluntarily relocate had passed, so the military forcibly removed 17,000 Cherokee Indians.

Along the 225 mile path from Chattanooga, TN to Waterloo, AL, many of the Cherokees suffered from starvation, disease, weather, and 4,000 of the Cherokees died. The Commemorative Ride approximates the path of the forcible removal. The Trail of Tears Ride is on the 2017 Lightning Customs' Major Motorcycle Rallies List.

There are no registration fees to participate in the Ride. For further details, see the site listed below.
