The local Taco Mamacita/Scenic City Velo Women’s Cycling Team will host a Community Ride to promote cycling in the Tennessee Valley and to preview the U.S. Pro National Road Race Course. The ride will be Sunday at 10 a.m. and will start at Renaissance Park, 120 Manufacturers Road. Participants will meet at the yellow Cumberland Bail Bond Tent near the hill.
The ride is to promote women on bikes and give the community a chance to meet the local race team. Team members will guide riders on both a six-mile and 12-mile options of the course through the downtown Chattanooga portion of the race.
The Taco Mamacita/Scenic City Velo Women’s Cycling Team is an amateur racing team representing the Chattanooga area. Team members compete in races throughout the Southeast. Team Captain Stephanie Rynas, who will be competing in the U.S. Pro National Women’s Road Race, says, “It is important to promote and increase awareness and participation of women in the sport of cycling. We want to encourage women and the community as a whole to ride with us no matter their skill level.”
There will be an informal meet and greet at Milk and Honey immediately following the ride.
