Pedals on Rails

Pedals on Rails is Elizabethton’s only dedicated bicycle rental business and is conveniently located adjacent to the trail in downtown Elizabethton, TN. Bike Rentals are currently available 3 days a week: Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Come explore downtown Elizabethton and the Tweetsie Trail.  From parks to shops and restaurants, biking is the fastest, most fun, and greenest way to explore Elizabethton.

Nestled up against the Appalachian Mountains in the heart of East Tennessee you’ll find Elizabethton. The downtown area offers something for everyone from boutique, antique, and one-of-a-kind shops to restaurants and a taphouse.

By renting a bike you can start exploring the numerous sites in the downtown area from pedaling through the historic covered bridge, riding the Linear Trail along the banks of the Doe & Watauga Rivers to the area’s most visited trail, The Tweetsie Trail. The Tweetsie Trail covers low forests, passes over creeks and bridges, and visits rock formations while traversing from one southern city to another along the old railway of the ET&WNC Railroad.
