Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and Outdoor Chattanooga Continue Chickamauga Battlefield Bicycle Tours in 2019

Fort Oglethorpe, GA: Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park and Outdoor Chattanooga will continue offering a series of free, historical bike tours through Chickamauga Battlefield.

This year's tours are scheduled for May 18, Sept. 21, and Oct.19. They begin at 9:30 a.m. at Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center. Ride length is approximately 3 to 4 miles on flat to moderately-hilly terrain. The rides are appropriate for adults and children ages 8 years and older, when accompanied by an adult. Children must be able to ride confidently, without training wheels. All participants are required to wear helmets.

The public is invited to bring their bicycles (recumbent or handcycles are appropriate) and join in the leisurely-paced historical rides, which takes approximately 2.5 hours. NPS rangers will talk about the history of the battlefield while Outdoor Chattanooga staff and volunteers provide ride leadership and support.

Loaner bicycles will be available for riders 5 feet tall and over at no charge, thanks to sponsorship from the National Park Partners and the Chattanooga Bicycle Club. The number of loaner bicycles are limited and reservations for them are required; please contact Outdoor Chattanooga at 423-643-6888. If you bring your own equipment, no reservation is necessary.
