We’re a cycling group that’s been riding in the Chattanooga area for more than 25 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 Falling Water at 8:30. (It’s really not that far and worth it to ride some of Bubba’s favorites!) Head north for a climb up Retro, descend everyone’s favorite Leggett, jump on the Stormer roller coaster, then meander our way back on a few less familiar roads. 61 miles, 3900 feet. Do laps in the parking lot with Mighty Mike to make it a solid metric because he’s sick that way.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.
Elites will play rabbit to TB by doing a shortened version of their route. Roll from the Soddy Ball Fields at 8:30 and climb up Retro Hughes, back down Leggett, and back via Stormer. 40 mies and if you need to add miles climb Hotwater at the end.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.
