2014 - 2015 Top Rider Profiles

Top 3 Male Riders

Andrew McPherson

Around this time last year, I was taking a lot of classes at UTC, working a job at Bellhops, and living in a studio apartment in the 300. I was rushing from home to work, work to school, and school to home. If it weren't for Bike Chattanooga, I doubt I would've survived all the commuting. My favorite feature of the bike share is the flexibility of grabbing a bike from any station at any time.

I use Bike Chattanooga everyday on my commute to work. This allows my wife and I to be a 1 car family, which means we can avoid all the expenses associated with owning a second vehicle, not to mention the cost to the environment. I don't have to store a bike or deal with repairs, and there are Bike Chattanooga stations everywhere I need them! On top of the savings and convenience, daily activity on a bike helps me feel energized and ensures I spend regular time outdoors.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of using Bike Chattanooga is that our family can get from one place to another in a variety of ways. We can ride, walk, or drive to suit the events of the day.

Liz Hobbs 3 Years in a Row: I use Bike Chattanooga all the time when I'm downtown, primarily to save on the cost and hassle of parking (and in some cases re-parking) my car if I go to more than one event downtown. Also, the Bike Chattanooga system gives me a lot of flexibility in how I can go from one place to another while I'm downtown. I can park my car, grab a bike, go to an event, grab a ride with friends or pick up another bike to go to my next destination. Bike Chattanooga is a perfect solution for a person who's always on the move
