Bikes & Blooms

April 25 & 26, 2015


We’ve teamed up  with Outdoor KnoxFest again this year to make Bikes & Blooms even better as we experience the Dogwood trails the lean, green way – on a bicycle by way of an organized ride!  Both are scenic 8-mile rides led by Tennessee Valley Bikes. Riders must wear helmets. Young riders must be skilled at on-road riding, suggested age 8 and up. No pre-registration required!

New This Year! These rides will be divided into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced tracks so as to accommodate all levels of riders.
