Hands down the best!!! They took very good care of us and a big shout out to Adam for all his help! If you want it for any outdoor activity, clothing and gear. They even have amazing beer on tap! And don't forget the climbing wall. If your in Knoxville and enjoy the outdoors make sure you stop by

We had rented bikes by Riversports at Volunteer Landing. What a perfect way to see the riverfront! We then took the bike path into the city and biked around downtown and the convention center area. We highly recommend renting bikes from Riversports for a couple of hours of relaxed fun!
