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 will take advantage of the inverted temps tomorrow and spend some time on top. Roll from Mike’s at 9:30 – use Chilhowee Street lot please. It’ll be cold but warmer on top so we’ll head up quickly with a SPIN up the W, Marshall Creek Gorge, off the back, left onto East Valley, and up the back of Suck. Only like 57 miles but 5100 feet. (003, you can add a loop at the Bend to get a metric so you won’t feel poorly about yourself.)

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.
By order of the General the Elites need a Metric. Roll from Mike’s Hole in the Wall at 9:30. Now don’t get confused TB will be there too and doing a different route. Elites will head across the Toe, out Brown’s Ferry Road and eventually climb Raccoon. Look at the map but know that the route includes Creek Rd. Murphy Hollow, 299, etc. The General will be in charge. FYI, no riverwalk included in this route.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.
