Our Team

Cycle Sequatchie is a joint production of Velo View Bike Tours and the Chattanooga Bicycle Club that combines a beautiful, fun, first-class bike ride with a celebration of everything that makes Sequatchie Valley and the South Cumberland Plateau such a special place! Our goals:

  • Bring attention to all of the fun options for outdoor recreation (cycling & so much more!) in Sequatchie Valley and the South Cumberland Plateau.
  • Provide exposure and opportunities to support regional conservation initiatives and family farms through the Outdoor Expo.

There are many ways to support the cause: providing financial sponsorship for various elements of the event, donating prizes for our K.O.M. winners, or giving your time to volunteer during the event. This is a grassroots, community-driven event and we welcome any and all creative ideas for involvement! Contact us and let us know what you have in mind! (We've included some sponsorship suggestions on our Contact Form.) In exchange for your support, we'll provide you with plenty of exposure at the event, on our website, and through social media and other channels.

Thank you to all of our partners and sponsors for teaming up to make this event possible!

The Cookie Jar Cafe

Good Southern comfort food and fantastic desserts have made the Cookie Jar Cafe one of our favorite places to refuel after riding in the Valley. So when we put this ride together, we knew the Cookie Jar Cafe would have to be part of the post-ride meal. One bite of the coconut cream pie and you'll know why!
