Our community is a great place to ride a bike. Chattanooga was first named a bicycle-friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists in 2003. In 2012, Chattanooga became the first city in Tennessee to launch a municipal bike share program, and in 2014, Chattanooga became the first city in Tennessee classified as a silver-level bicycle friendly community. Chattanooga was also the first city in Tennessee with a bicycle-specific traffic signal .
The first-ever Southeast Regional Bicycle Tourism Summit was hosted in Chattanooga in 2016, highlighting the regional appeal of bicycle tourism and our connections to the U.S. Bicycle Route System (route 21 connects Chattanooga to Atlanta). Regionally, great greenways & biking opportunities continue to be developed, including the Wolftever Creek Greenway in Collegedale, the Ringgold Nature Trail in Ringgold GA, and many more.
