The largest adaptive mountain bike tour of its kind is coming to Chattanooga. Catalyst Sports will be traveling with their fleet of adaptive mountain bikes, which include e-assist, junior size and tandem options, to nine cities in nine weekends.
Catalyst Sports invites the greater Chattanooga community to learn more about adaptive mountain biking on Saturday and Sunday. There are spaces for both participants and volunteers to sign up during this two-day event at Lula Lake Land Trust (5000 Lula Lake Rd, Lookout Mountain, GA 30750) . Each ride will last an hour and a half for two adaptive athletes and four volunteers. This time slot will include safety instruction, proper riding technique, and proper fitting of the bike to the participant.
“This might be the first time someone with a disability will access nature off the pavement,” said Catalyst Sports Founder Eric Gray. “There are thousands of people with disabilities in the Chattanooga area, and this weekend could be a chance for them to be active in nature for the first time since their disability. Through events like these people with disabilities are empowered to discover their strength and abilities and everyone discovers that we all play a part.”
