Outdoor Chattanooga has gone the extra mile to ensure that enjoying National Bike Month really is as easy as…well, riding a bike. This month a basketful of free cycling events and activities are being offered to get the city off four wheels and onto two.
On Friday, May 15, commuters can celebrate National Bike to Work Day by joining colleagues and friends on a ride to the office. Designated routes will follow bike lanes, greenways, and bike-friendly roads to allow people of all ability and coordination the chance to join in the fun. Also, if in need of a quick pit stop, all cyclists are invited to join Outdoor Chattanooga between 7 - 9 a.m. for a special breakfast at Waterhouse Pavilion in Miller Plaza.
Other events include an historic guided bicycle tour of Orchard Knob with Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Service rangers on Saturday, May 16, and, for the more adventurously inclined, Street Cycling 101 lessons on Monday, May 18, taught by League of American Bicyclists certified instructors.
Whether you’re a biking bumbler or a serious pedal-pusher, this month is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle—and probably, the helmet.
