April 27 - May 3
Mountainbiking in Chattanooga is a thrilling and exciting way to explore the beautiful landscape of the Tennessee Valley. With so many different types of terrain, you'll have the chance to practice and improve your riding techniques.
For flowing singletrack, we have Enterprise South and Bauxite; for more technical trail, there is Raccoon Mountain, 5-Points, and a new system, the Durham Mine Trail. With so many destinations available, you'll find something to suit your style and ability.
The city of Chattanooga is known for being bicycling friendly. A pedestrian bridge connects a vibrant downtown with dozens of restaurants, several parks, the aquarium, a farmer's market, and public art exhibits. A fifteen mile multiuser River Walk provides a relaxing way to explore the history and culture of Chattanooga with your bike.
For total immersion in the biking scene, we suggest securing an AirB&B or VRBO in the Northshore, North Chattanooga or Hill City area just north of Renaissance Park and Coolidge Park. There are plentiful 2, 3 and 4 bedroom units here that are walking distance to a plethora of restaurants and pubs along the river, all within biking distance to the River Walk. Additionally, there are numerous hotels right in town if that is your preference. We suggest these areas to keep people close together to facilitate socializing after rides and carpooling to dinner.
We recommend making lodging arrangements early, since April is the season of 70° days and cool nights, perfect for most any outdoor activities. Checkin on Saturday, checkout on Friday or whenever. With so many riding opportunities you might need to stay a few extra days to experience all this greatness. Plan accordingly.
Finally, mountainbiking in Chattanooga is a great way to make new friends and connect with other riders. Whether you ride with our group or simply take off on your own, you'll find that the mountainbiking community in Chattanooga is welcoming and friendly. The city is also home to a number of great bike shops and rental companies, which can help set you up with everything needed for a great day on the trails.
