Bike Chattanooga To Dedicate Hubert Fry Riverpark Station On Friday

Friday, May 17, 2013

A ribbon cutting of Bike Chattanooga’s 31st station at the Hubert Fry Center at the Tennessee Riverpark will be Friday, at 2 p.m.

The new Tennessee Riverpark station, which is adjacent to the Riverpark boat launch, provides an important recreational link in the now 31 station Bike Chattanooga system. Visitors and residents will now be able to use Bike Chattanooga’s seven-speed cruiser bikes to explore the area’s premier greenway.

The new Riverpark station and additional docks at the Outdoor Chattanooga station have been installed due to increased demand on the system, especially in recreational areas. 

“All bicycle traffic in the city is up 27% over last year,” said Chattanooga Bicycle Coordinator Philip Pugliese. “So it was only appropriate that we continue to expand the bicycle transit system. This location will make it easier for visitors, recreational cyclists and commuters to access the Tennessee Riverpark, a great transportation corridor.”
