Bike Checks

Come early and make sure your bike is ready to ride. Local bike shops will provide bike checks in front of the Knoxville Civic Coliseum from from 3:30 pm - 5:15 pm.


The Epilepsy Foundation will be providing helmets for children who don't have one. If your child is 16 and under and doesn't have a helmet stop by their table to get one (they will be set up from 3:30 pm - 5:15 pm at Mary Costa Plaza). Children age 16 and under are required by law to have a helmet. Be safe so you can have fun on the ride!
