Mountain Bike Checkpoint Race
11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Teams of two will race between checkpoints on South Knoxville's trails, roads and greenways. There is no set route and the checkpoints will remain secret until the start of the event. BRiders need to carry their own gear, food and water. Sponsored by Tennessee Valley Bikes and the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club. Teams must have a reliable digital camera so they can document the checkpoints! Benefits the Legacy Parks Foundation.
On-site registration is $50 per team.
Bike Month is coming!
May. A month when we encourage everyone to rediscover their bikes and the sheer, simple joys that come from riding. There are bike classes, events, rides going on, from the I Bike KNX Festival to Bike to Work Day, and much more. Check out the details.
We have two Ride Smart classes scheduled. This free, one-hour class is a bike ride that also teaches you how to be more confident riding in traffic and getting through intersections. Please spread the word to friends and family!
Do you want your child to learn to ride a bike? Is your child stuck on training wheels and you aren't sure how to break the habit? Come to our "learn to ride" clinic at the I Bike KNX Festival!
