Hey, Chattanooga. Let’s ride. City Editor Kristen here. I recently stopped by Rock/Creek’s location at 1530 Riverside Dr. to check out the electric mountain bikes they have for rent and to take one for a spin myself.

If you haven’t been to this Rock/Creek location before, you may be surprised to see how much it has to offer. This location is also home to the Rock/Creek Experience Center, where Noogans can rent electric mountain bikes, sit-on-top + tandem kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards.

What we tried:

There are several electric mountain bikes you can choose from to rent for a four-hour half day ($100) or an 8-hour full day ($120).

I chose the Specialized Turbo Tero Electric Mountain Bike for my ride and rode to Stringer’s Ridge to hit the trails.

One thing to note about me, I wouldn’t say I’m the most experienced with biking, but this bike really made the trip a whole lot easier.

What not to miss:

With the recent openings of Walden’s Ridge Park + Aetna Mountain Trails, it’s prime time to try out the new trails.

Pro tip: Most of the mountain bike trails in the area are e-bike-approved, but make sure to double-check prior to your ride.

What we’re still talking about:

Let’s be honest, I know I wouldn’t have been able to bike the ~12-mile bike ride in the short time frame I did on a regular bike. I was so surprised by how helpful the e-bike was for making it up steep hills and for allowing you to take a break from pedaling to take in the Scenic City views.

I was also shocked at how easy riding an e-bike was. After a quick couple of practice laps around the parking lot, I was good to go on my Chattanooga adventure.
