I thought about posting this as a response to the last thread we had going about everybody's plans for the year, but decided to break it off into a new one....
**PROPOSED TN BELLA GATHERING!!**
The weekend of April 12 and 13 looks great for this! There is one road race in Chattanooga, but the TBRA race calendar is pretty much clear, and the SERC calendar, too. Would a Saturday or a Sunday work better for everybody?
I propose that we meet at a park pavilion in an area that has room for runners, mountain bikers and road bikers. We can ride before we eat, then chow down potluck-style.
I know Chickasaw Trace Park in Columbia would be great for this. There's a road route from the park up highway 7 that meets up with the end of the Natchez Trace Parkway (approx 12 miles from Chickasaw). AWESOME hills. The TBRA banquet ride with Chris Carmichael took this route. I think. There is a cabin and a couple of pavilions. There is also a paved road and trail for running and of course, the fab mtb trail.

I will be in Chattanooga on Sunday doing the crit. For some reason, the Georgia Cup people made it impossible to figure out their races (unless I'm missing something), so either it was, at one time, both days, or still is and they just haven't posted all of the information for Saturday yet. If the website is correct, it looks like I'll be available on Saturday, but not Sunday.
