Why This Site

The Chattanooga Tri-State Region is home to some of the best cycling in the country, but without a guide or local insight it's not always apparent where to ride. Bikeways of the Scenic South makes it easy to find the best backroads in the region, as well as hidden gems along the way!

Who Put This Together

Bikeways of the Scenic South is spearheaded by the Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association, Velo View Bike Tours and Bike the South, in cooperation with government officials, local chambers of commerce and businesses, cycling clubs, and individuals across the region who have donated their time and resources to bring attention to our natural treasures.
