Whine Like a Man

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!

Team Bubba

Saturday 3/16

It won’t be raining Sat but it’ll be cold so we’ll delay takeoff. Roll at 10:00 from Heaven and Ale. Toe, Elder, down Raccoon, Cummings, 299, Murphy Hollow, and Creek Rd back. (Hard to find something we haven’t climbed in the last 2 weeks with the David Meek Ride particularly with a climb early to stay warm but I did the best I could.) 58 miles, 3500 feet, and hopefully back by 1:30.   Those with more time can add a climb up Scenic to Sanders. (Don’t start on me BeelzeBub, I’m headed straight back to the yellow couch at H&A.)

Ride with GPS

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.

Bubba Elite

Saturday 3/16

Boss didn’t mention it but yes the divorce is official. We’re back to two Saturday rides. Yeh, it will be chilly Saturday morning but to establish our right to the yellow couch at Heaven & Ale we’ll roll from there at 9:30 and do the Elite 3S3M metric “lite.” Over Suck through the valley and back 299. About 55 miles.

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.

Ride with GPS

Thursday

(During daylight savings time) ride departs promptly at 5:30PM from the Chickamauga Battlefield parking lot. Route varies somewhat every week, but expect 30+ miles on this under 2-hour Fly-lead ride.

Downtown Lunch Ride

This Elite-style ride has a firm roll-time of 11:45 from the downtown YMCA. Based on work schedules, some days you might be by yourself. Ride time is about 90 minutes and sometimes includes a mountain climb.

Ride Smart

Rides are on open roads so obey traffic rules, WEAR A HELMET, and RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK (the dad-burn lawyers mad us say that). Learn to whine about the pace being too fast or slow, the route being too steep or too flat, and the course being too long or too short, and you will BEABubba too.

IF YOU RIDE, YOU RELEASE.

Be sure to review the release posted on this site.
