Neighborhood Bike Ride

Saturday, October 2, 2010
Free safety checks begin at 9 a.m.
Ride leaves at 10 a.m.

The Neighborhood Bike Ride is turning 10 this year!

When we started the ride on Market Square in 2001, there wasn’t much else happening on Saturday mornings. Things have changed dramatically (for the best!), so we have decided to move north where we can spread our wheels. The start location will be the corner of Central and Baxter Ave. We’ll tour Old North Knoxville, Parkridge, Mechanicsville and 4th & Gill for this year’s route. When we return, the Happy Hollerpalooza festival will be getting under way. Free parking is available at the Knox Central building, 1000 N. Central. As always, all ages and skill levels welcome, and helmets required. There will be some hills, since this is East Tennessee, but we try to limit them, and we don’t leave anyone behind. The route is less than 12 miles (takes a little more than an hour, including a rest stop). Email with questions.
