“…With solid year-round work in land conservation and recreation promotion from local entities such as the Legacy Parks Foundation, Knoxville is fast becoming one of the hottest outdoor cities on the east coast.”
“While Knoxville might be best known as a college football town, a busy group of builders and riders are working to give the city a second identity as a mountain bike town by piecing together a massive system of singletrack that winds through downtown’s suburbs.”
HUGE MASSIVE THANKS to Tennessee Valley Bicycles, Kona Bikes, Chelsie, and EVERYONE who contributed to AMBC and made 2016 a record-breaking year!
We hope to see you all back in Knoxville at the 2017 AMBC Fall Festival!
This Pinkbike article sums up our feelings about this great city and its inhabitants perfectly!
The people I had gotten to know over the course of my time here were so profoundly excited to show off their trails and community, and the sense of family and familiarity was palpable almost immediately. There’s something to be said about the people of a particular place making it a destination.
Located just west of the spine of the Appalachian Mountains, Knoxville is blessed with never ending ridges and valleys–AKA really good geography for trails. Thanks to the blood, sweat, and tears of some exceedingly motivated mountain bikers, this East Tennessee city of 200,000 is laced with some seriously epic riding.
