Chattanooga Tenn

Does anyone know anything about the C&V community in and around Chattanooga Tenn? I'm moving there and will be looking for people to relate to.

Thanks......

Worst case, Atlanta and Knoxville are 2 hours away. Close enough to drive for the right bike or a special event.

Home base for the awesome 3 state/ 3 mountains ride. A group of us spent a day there before the event and a day after, well worth the riding around there. Beautiful road and plenty of climbing! Great downtown scene with open cafes and I hear, things to do on the river.

Can't remember the club that organized the event but it seemed to be very active with cycling.

I think ink you will find your niche.

+1 on good cycling community, but not so sure about C+V. Wouldn't be surprised if you found kindred spirits there. I've done the 3S3M a few times and the region is great for cycling. Chattanooga Bicycle Club is the organizer for that.

Almost a standard anywhere you go..but check with LBS, google cycling clubs(beyond the one mentioned above), and more recently take a look at meetup.com for local groups.
