Scenic City Velo
WHO WE ARE
Scenic City Velo is a city-wide, competition oriented cycling club which came into being for 2005 with the merger of three premier racing clubs in Chattanooga; the North Chattanooga Cycle Club (NCCC), Suck Creek Cycles, and Team Peggy. SCV was born out of a desire to bring all the competitive assets of the local cycling community under one roof, in order to better serve the interests of Chattanooga cyclists and help them reach a higher level in competition. Our membership represents a wealth of experience and success in all cycling disciplines, including championship titles both on and off the road, from the local to the national level. So whether you’re a dyed-in-the-wool roadie, a hardcore mountain biker, or a second shaving triathlete, you’ll find friends in Scenic City Velo who can help you get to the next level. SCV is a member club of both USA Triathlon and USA Cycling. We are also a proud member of the Tennessee Bicycle Racing Association (TBRA), an organization dedicated to the promotion and development of bicycle racing in Tennessee. SCV won the 2005, 2007, and 2009-2013 TBRA Road Club of the Year points competition, as well as the 2009 TBRA Mountain Bike Club of the Year competition. SCV membership grew to over 150 members in 2013.
Scenic City Velo is open to all cyclists with an interest in the sporting side of cycling, be it competition, training, or just fast recreational riding. The club offers experienced, competitive riders a supportive framework to pursue their racing goals, as well as offering new or recreational cyclists an environment in which to grow and learn about the competitive aspects of the sport.Club activities and benefits:

Scenic City Velo shares a goal of promoting the city of Chattanooga as an outdoor recreational hotbed in the Southeast, as well as creating opportunities for the people that live in the Chattanooga area to get involved in competitive bicycle sports. SCV club members participate in bike races all over the country and even occasionally in other countries. This has helped give Scenic City Velo and our sponsors far reaching exposure at events within the Southeast and beyond. From small town road races to big NCC criteriums, SCV club members will continue to compete at all levels in 2014 and beyond.
Sub TeamsScenic City Velo has incorporated a model that allows for smaller, tight knit racing teams to exist under the club umbrella and still receive some of the benefits associated with club membership. Sub Teams must meet certain requirements set up by the club’s board of directors. These teams race with Scenic City Velo club affiliation under USA Cycling, but are largely responsible for their own sponsorship. 2014 SCV Sub Teams will include:
