    Anyone know or rode the TN River around Chattanooga and Knoxville?

    Planning on riding both these areas...a shorter run around Chattanooga seeing the down town areas and near Lookout Mountain.

    Then a long ride the next day around Knoxville. Where is a good stop for lunch that is open during the week? The red run up to Douglas Lake Dam is 40 miles and the ride down to Chihowee Dam is 70 miles, so looking for fuel stops down that way. Any cool points of interest on these routes?

    I know some GH members up there Wade.
    Been there a few dozen times myself, but not on those routes. Looks fun.

    I drove through there on I 24 in early February and kept thinking what a cool place that would be to ride.

    Yeah...been thru there a dozen times with the same thought, even stayed last New Year's on the Delta Queen riverboat and it almost killed me to not have a ski, even though it was cold as crap. This street view doesn't do it justice, but you've got the base of Lookout Mountain on one side and the river on the other.

    Looks like this ride went down the crapper...my friend in Knoxville has been sick this week and can't take off work Monday or Tuesday now even though he scheduled time off almost 2 months ago when we started talking about this. The plan was ride Knoxville while my wife is in a class on Monday and Tuesday and we'd ride Chattanooga Sunday on our way up...weather's still looking OK so I'm bummed. Got multiple routes mapped out with ramps researched and waypointed in Garmin Mapsource. Dammit.
