ABOUT US

TENNESSEE GRAVEL is a service of Chattanooga-based Velo View Bike Tours dedicated to helping cyclists experience the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains. The foundation for this effort was laid years ago by Kim Murrell, who established herself as the premier authority on cycling adventure in this neck of the woods through her business Chilhowee Outdoors. A world traveler and accomplished bikepacker, Kim developed a number of epic routes in these mountains, including the Vista & Mountain bikepacking routes (now collectively known as Three Rivers Way) and the one-day classics The Dirty 130 and Death March Revival.

Kim's expertise and attention to detail caught the eye of Shannon Burke & Celeste Cyr of Velo View Bike Tours, who moved their business from Austin, Texas to Chattanooga in 2016. While Velo View initially offered bike vacation packages in destinations across the country, the focus of the business shifted to custom tours in the Chattanooga tri-state region once they discovered the incredible wealth of world-class cycling opportunities in their new backyard. That focus narrowed even further when they jumped into gravel cycling and became obsessed with the amazing playground that is the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains!

Kindred spirits in their conviction that the gravel riding in these mountains is nothing short of spectacular and in their desire to share this treasure with the cycling community nationwide, they teamed up to bring attention to the region and support the two-wheeled adventures of those fortunate enough to discover this amazing place. Welcome to the Gravel Cycling Capital of the East!
