We’re a cycling group that’s been riding in the Chattanooga area for more than 20 years. Bubba isn’t affiliated with a club team or shop so you’re welcome to ride with Bubba regardless of the jersey you wear so long as it has sleeves. (If it doesn’t, even your family doesn’t want to see you so buy a TT bike and learn to be alone.) Show up Saturday, get heckled about your stupid looking socks or sunglasses, embrace your new nickname, and BeABubba too!
TB rolls at 8:30 from old Signal Rd Kmart (now the Aldi behind Burger King). Head north, climb Montlake, down Hotwater, and then the may, lee Armstrong loop. A metric.
The nature of the ride - Pace ranges from conversational to brisk. There are always a few re-grouping points during the first half of the ride. This is the ride for the strongest cyclists in the club.
Headed North. Roll from the Soddy Ball Fields at 8:30 for a 56 mile ride. Up Leggett, across the top and down Hwy 30 to Cranmore Cove. Store stop in Graysville at mile 40 and then back to the Ball Fields via Couterville and then cross US 27 to pick up the Mayflower/Stormer route. For those wanting extra miles in prep for the Octoberfest century start from either Falling Water (adds 23 miles round trip) or K-Mart (adds 44 miles round trip). Just make sure you time your departures correctly.Ride with GPS
The nature of the ride - Elite rides honor Team Bubba traditions (lots of heckling) but might be a little shorter and definitely includes more stops and regrouping. The Elite ride is a good entry point to Team Bubba for fit cyclists.
