A Guide to Upcoming Chattanooga Adventures
Starting next weekend, there will be a calendar packed with exciting outdoor adventures and activities throughout Chattanooga. On Saturday, May 2nd, the city of Chattanooga will be alive with excitement, as we celebrate two exciting events. The first event is the 28th annual 3 state 3 mountain Cycling Challenge. Starting at 8am, fans and cycling enthusiasts can start cheering on riders as they begin the full century ride, which will once again take them in and out of three different states,Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, and over 3 different mountains, including our very own Lookout Mountain. While this event is not billed as a race, there is a competitive portion of the race called the Suck Creek Climb Challenge, where riders will earn prizes for their speed over the climb. Donations from this great event also go to support Bike Walk Tennessee, the state’s only statewide bike and pedestrian advocacy organization. Also that day are the exciting Dragon Boat Races on the Tennessee River. Dragon Boat Races attract passionate teams from all ove the country, and are spectacular fundraisers for local charities. This year, join the racing teams in the 9th annual Children’s Hospital Dragon Boat Festival at TVA Park at Chickamauga Dam.
In late May, cycling enthusiasts will get another chance to show their support for USA Cycling, when the 2015 Volkswagen USA Cycling Professional Road, Time Trial, & Para-cycling National Championships comes back to Chattanooga.
