I love Chattanooga because every day is an opportunity to go biking with all the trails and parks around the area.

Here's another ride that I just noticed that someone posted on the Chattanooga Bike Club calendar for Sunday, April 3rd. It's a good beginner ride.

It's called the Spandex Free Family Ride. It's 10 miles at a pace of 8-10 mph thru the Chicamauga Battlefield.

Check it out on the calendar. It's supposed to be a nice day for biking on Sunday!

The ride was a blast! We did have to battle the wind on the way back, but the picnic lunch we had made up for it!

Every monday night, there is a beginner's ride that is set up just for you! You can ride any bike you have. The pace and distance of the ride is set by the slowest rider. It's perfect for people who are just getting into biking or coming back from an injury.

The leader of the ride is Kelvin Hale. He is very nice and very patient. Some experienced riders show up, just to ride and help out if someone needs assistance.

It's a great place to start learning the ins and outs of riding in a group.

Check out the website for details:

How did your ride go? I have a question for you about riding. Do you need to have a road bike to join the rides? I was wondering what the best ride would be for someone who has never ridden in a group before and doesn't have a road bike?

Thanks for posting this. I'm the current Ride Coordinator for the CBC. There are a lot of upcoming rides for all skill levels coming up on the calendar. I can keep everyone posted in the future if there's an interest.
If anyone is thinking of doing the intermediate ride this saturday, I'm Peggy Olson, the sweep for the ride. Our pace will be about 13-15 mph and I will make sure no one gets dropped.

SEASON KICK-OFF RIDES

The ride season is starting so lets kick-off with some bike rides & socialize afterwards with food -- to get all into the riding groove. We'll meet at Red Bank City Park to launch the rides. After rides we'll replenish our biked off calories with a catered lunch. Extra good news: there are restrooms!

Red Bank City Park (aka Skipper Fairbanks Rec Cntr) is located off Morrison Springs Road, behind Erlanger Hospital and RB High School. (Directions are below.)

There will be 3 levels of rides & start times:

10:00 am Climbing Series #5 - Joe Nivert - Ride Leader and probably sweep. Suck Creek Mtn Both Sides This is an out and back ride of 42 miles which includes the 5.6 mile climb up the front side of Suck Creek Mt and the 5.0 mile climb up the back side. We will ride out to Gary Hooper's office on Pine St in Whitwell for a rest stop then reverse the route on the return ... Gary has kindly offered his office and will provide refreshments.

11:00 am Moderate - Tom Ingeldew leader - sweep Peggy Olson -- 30 miles mol

11:30 am Fairly easy - Tom Grey leader - sweep Bill Cornwell -- 15 - 20 miles

1:00 PM - or soon after - we will have lunch -- catered by Qdoba Restaurant. All CBC members are invited to eat, but please try to RSVP to me by Wed, March 16 so there will be enough food for everyone.

DIRECTIONS TO RED BANK PARK (aka Skipper Fairbanks Rec Cntr)

Take hwy 27 to the Morrison Springs Exit (there is only one exit whether coming from Soddy DZ or dowtown); at the traffic light turn west (go towards Signal Mtn). In about 1/4 mile you will see Erlanger Hospital. Immediately before Erlanger note a sign - on the left - Skipper Fairbanks Rec Cntr & another sign saying Sleep Center -- turn left here. Continue past a swimming pool, a communirty center, and park in the lot on the left on a little rise. You will see a white van parked across from parking lot by our picnic pavillion. This be the place.[color=#][/color][/b]
