An Intro to Mountain Biking class at Outdoor Chattanooga.

Chattanooga is a magnet for mountain bikes.

Miles of wooded trails create a playground for the local cycling community - and attract adventure seekers from across the Southeast.

William Newlin of Chattamatters looks at the local mountain biking scene - and the newest set of trails to open here in Chattanooga.


Visit outdoorchattanooga.com for more information about area trails, guided rides and other resources on mountain biking.

Chattamatters is a civic storytelling project at The Enterprise Center. Check it out at chattamatters.com - and on social media.
