This website is the starting point for a new event to be held on the 20 mile + trail system at Raccoon Mountain. This unique venue was built by volunteers from the Chattanooga chapter of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA), in conjunction with the the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Outdoor Chattanooga and the National Park Service Rivers Trails and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) office.
Tentative schedule of events:
Downhill/Freeride Challenge (Megawatt)
Trials Competition (Chunky)
XC Trail Ride (Laurel Point)
Time Trial Road Ride (Resevoir Loop Road)
No fee for attendance
All riders are expected to be self supported
Insurance coverage TBD, participation may require USA membership (Unicycling Society of America).
Food and snacks will be potluck style, no alcohol or illegal substances please, as this is a Federal facility and consequences for possession are quite serious.
White elephant gift exchange: So much fun!

Raccoon Mountain is conveniently located just fifteen minutes West of Chattanooga. The city of Chattanooga offers a multitude of lodging options and is a great place to shop or enjoy a good meal.
