The City of Chattanooga’s Bike Chattanooga Bicycle Transit System invites the public to view the new FIT Bike Share Bikes this weekend at the Chattanooga Marathon EXPO in the First Tennessee pavilion.
Thanks to a grant from the Lyndhurst Foundation, Bike Chattanooga will be among the first systems in the U.S. to add all three of the new Public Bike Share Company designs.
"We added 34 ICONIC bikes, which include over 30 improvements to our classic cruiser bike, with the September four station expansion.
Four FIT bikes, which are lighter and easier to maneuver, are wrapped in our Bike Chattanooga colors and ready for release. The 3rd new style, BOOST, with electric assist is expected this spring. All three designs work at any of Bike
Chattanooga’s 37 docking stations.
PBSC officials said, “Providing the ultimate free riding experience, our brand new designed FIT is a lighter rendition of everything you love about the ICONIC, making it perfect for all types of riders. It has the same proven ergonomics as the ICONIC, yet lighter components such as a smaller frame, thinner grip for better handling and smaller 24” wheels for great maneuverability. With a sleek and modern design, the FIT provides a great riding experience for all cyclists.”
Try out the new bikes during the Erlanger Chattanooga Marathon EXPO in the First Tennessee Pavilion this weekend. Bike Chattanooga Ambassadors will have the new ICONIC and FIT bikes on display Friday from 3-7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Visit the Bike Chattanooga booth to hear about our recent system expansion and see the ICONIC and FIT bikes. Bike Ambassadors will be able to answer questions about using Bike Chattanooga.
The FIT bikes will be released into Bike Chattanooga’s 37 station system this month. Follow Bike Chattanooga on Twitter, Facebook, and bikechattanooga.com for the release date and a chance to win Bike Chattanooga prizes for being one of the first to ride a FIT.
