US Pro Cycling for Non-Cycling Fans
This weekend the U.S. Pro Cycling National Championships are coming to Chattanooga. The event is not just about biking. Philip Grymes, Executive Director of Outdoor Chattanooga calls it a festival with a bike race. There will be a block party on the Northshore and vendors near the start and finish area. The event puts Chattanooga on the international map.
"This is the most prestigious cycling event in the country, its the Superbowl of cycling, bringing it to our town means that not only are we a cycling town but we are an event town," said Philip Grymes, Executive Director of Outdoor Chattanooga.
He says big national events like the U.S. Pro Cycling National Championships encourage other groups to bring their big conventions and championships here.
The time trials are on Saturday, May 24th and the race is on Monday, May 26th. For more information on start times, this is the link to the U.S. Pro Cycling National Championships website
