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!
Roll from Unum at 8:00 for the River Gorge Short CoursePLUS. Over the Toe and then pick up the course. After the climb up Raccoon to the finish line descend back down Elder and back over the Toe. A metric, 4400 feet, and then a CANNONBALL (see Elite post). Count on one refueling at the Bait Store – need to keep it moving in order to get to the pool before the Elites because with those guys in the pool it may not be a Baby Ruth.

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.
Saturday 8/18/18 Kamp Kookamonga Ride
Come one and all for Bub One’s Kamp Kookamonga ride. Pool party @ Bub One’s with Hot Dogs & BBQ to follow just bring your favorite beverage (BYOB) and swimming trunks. Water stop @ Pigeon Mtn. Grill. (Mile 38). Several easy ways to shorten the route due to weather or Honey-do-chores. Will roll from Bub One’s house at 8:30 at 1546 Burnt Mill Rd. which is about 3.5 miles south of the St. Elmo Food City. Plenty of parking. 65 miles through some uncharted roads in N. Georgia. No climbs but some tough stingers along the way.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.
