Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
***** THIS IS NOT A BEGINNERS RIDE *****
* This event is dependent on state and local government direction and AOC Leadership direction
* We will adhere to any social distancing directives that may be in place
If you don't like to chat, joke, socialize, or have a good sense of humor, this is probably not the bike ride you want to be on. This bike ride is intended to be invigorating, fun, social and exploratory :)
Biking speed and distance can vary, expect at least 20 miles of saddle time. If you're not sure you can keep up or wanna keep up with the group pace, this ride may not be a match for you.
Must feel comfortable riding in traffic
Bike Helmet is required. No helmet, no ride.
Itinerary is subject to change anytime.

Chattanooga Scenic Riverwalk Bicycle Ride
- Optional Lunch -
The Tennessee River Parkway located in Chattanooga is a 16 mile out and back ride along the Tennessee River. We will start our ride at the Chickamauga Dam after we take our first group photo. Our ride will be around 20 +/- miles of scenic cycling!
Starting at the Chickamagua Dam/Tennessee Riverwalk parking lot (Off Thrasher Bridge/Hwy153), we'll ride 8+/- miles via the Riverwalk to downtown Chattanooga and cross over the Walnut Street Bridge to the eclectic North Shore district.
We will have an early lunch break at one of the local establishments around Coolidge Park (There is a carousel and play fountain there!) and explore the area, including a side ride to theTennessee Aquarium, and the Moonpie Store before returning back to the starting point. Our goal is to ride approximately 20 +/- miles. What better way to enjoy a Saturday!
The Riverpark is very popular and we'll likely be sharing the trail with other riders, walkers, joggers, and baby strollers. You are responsible for your bike maintenance and/or repairs on the trail. Other AOCer's will be willing to provide what help they can, but ultimately individual riders are responsible for any repairs. Make sure you complete a pre-ride maintenance check a day or two prior to the event.
