The HUB Endurance Cyclocross team recently raised $400 for the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy (NCCC).  HUB Endurance is a local multi-sport pro shop that provides coaching, retail, and service to Chattanooga’s endurance athletes.  The donation to the Conservancy was made possible by a series of Cyclocross practice events that were held by HUB Endurance at Greenway Farms.

Cyclocross is a form of bike racing that involves multiple laps of a short course.

  Race courses feature a challenging combination of pavement, grass, steep hills, and wooded trails that require riders to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstacle, and remount.  Greenway Farms provided an ideal location for Cyclocross events with its rolling hills, open grassy space, and, in the right weather, great mud holes.

Greenway Farms, home of the NCCC, will also be the site of the Tennessee State Championship Cyclocross Race on Saturday, Dec. 14.  For more information about the race, contact HUB Endurance Cycling or visit www.tbra.org.

Charlie Mix, director of the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy, said, “The North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy would like to thank everyone involved with the HUB Endurance Cyclocross Team for their very generous donation.”

Rob Ellis, president of the board of directors added, “NCCC has always felt that one of our bedrock principles is to work within our community to promote an active and healthy appreciation for the wonderful outdoor opportunities found in the North Chickamauga Creek watershed.  The HUB Endurance Cyclocross team’s use of Greenway Farms is a perfect example of this.  We at the NCCC would especially like to thank the HUB group for being incredible stewards of the land by truly leaving ‘no trace behind.’ ”

The North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy (NCCC) is a citizen-created, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides a structured, dedicated framework for constructive, pro-active citizen involvement and support in conserving the significant natural, historic, and cultural resources located within and near the watershed area of North Chickamauga Creek.  NCCC's work is supported through a combination of grants from local and national foundations and contributions and volunteer services from supportive individuals, companies, and organizations.  NCCC pursues its initiatives through the work of its committees and also works in partnership with other organizations and governmental entities to accomplish common conservation goals.
