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 at 9:00 from Naked River Brewing (Finley Stadium). Route is a Bubba Basic — TB will expand its horizons post-ride at Naked River. (#3, although they may let nekked folks in there’s no way they let you in in that jersey.) Toe, Creek, 136, Humping Dog (its spring so expect lots of action), down 136 and refuel at the store after the descent. Marble back. 60 miles, 3800 feet.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.
Folks have been asking for something different so here we go. Roll at 9am from Heaven & Ale cross the river on Veteran’s bride and out 3rd street to Missionary Ridge like the Holiday Ride. We’ll take a little different way to the Battlefield, cruise down to Chickamauga before heading back north which while on the way we’ll “Take a Powder” loop. Cruise by Bacon’s house and back home. 59 miles and 3,100 feet.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.
