Did you know that there are nearly 20 miles of multi use trails for mountain biking in Roane County? Did you know that development is already in process for a multi use park with over 800 acres devoted to trails? Did you know that the term "Industrial Development" includes outdoor recreation? There are dollars to be captured for local economies by promoting outdoor recreation and Roane County is perfectly suited to bring in those dollars. The city of Oak Ridge gets it.

The city of Chattanooga gets it. Wouldn't it be good for some of our local officials to attend this event in Chattanooga and learn what this could do for Roane County?

The 5th Annual Tennessee Bike Summit will be held in Chattanooga’s Innovation District on April 22-23, 2016. This two-day conference will feature keynote speakers from around the country and experts from across Tennessee focusing on the role that bicycling plays in improving public health, spurring economic development and creating vibrant neighborhoods.

There is a lot going on that could have significant economic benefits and make our towns and communities even more wonderful places to live and raise families.
