Knoxville Bike Routes
March 7, 2014 - The East Knoxville Bicycle Route is complete, with directional signs showing the way from Gay Street to the Knoxville Zoo and back. This marks the fourth signed route available to cyclists in the City of Knoxville.

Bike RouteThe route is 3.5 miles in length (one way) and proceeds from Gay Street through the Old City, and then over to 5th Avenue where it passes through the Parkridge neighborhood.

There are 40 signs posted on poles designating the route, which provides easy access to Caswell Park as well as a comfortable alternative to cycling on Magnolia Avenue.

"Riders will still have access to the shops since the route is only one block off of Magnolia," said Jon Livengood, Alternative Transportation Coordinator for the City of Knoxville.
