Bluff City Blues 100 Training Team Sign Up

Saturday, October 6, 2018

Training Team Registration Currently Open

Regular Registration Opens April 16

About the BCB100 Training Team

Come join The Memphis Hightailers’ Bluff City Blues 100 Century Training Team! Learn to ride properly and to train for cycling’s equivalent of a marathon -- the century (100-mile) ride. Your training will culminate with Bluff City Blues 100 in October. 


This will be our 9th year to host this special training team, and we have trained close to 500 riders. Team members are cyclists of varying backgrounds and abilities, including many who are new to the sport. If you can ride your bike for an hour, you can train and do a century. It only takes desire, dedication, and proper training.

Orientation Meeting

We will have an Orientation Meeting shortly. at the MHBC Clubhouse at 397 Cumberland Street, Memphis, Tennessee (behind Wiseacre Brewery, off of Broad Street). Come learn about what is involved, our training schedule, cost, and more.


Our First Training Ride

Our first ride will be Saturday, March 31, leaving from 7945 Wolf River Blvd, West Cancer Center. Rides are scheduled on an alternating Saturday/Sundays with 21 rides set as you build up to riding a century (100 miles) or a metric century (100 km/ 62 miles).

Volunteering support for the training team rides:
MHBC is a volunteer organization.  The BCB100 Training Team cannot operate without volunteer support; therefore, all team members are expected to devote at least one day providing support for the team.
