More About Us

SHANNON BURKE, founder and director of Velo View Bike Tours, attributes his love for cycling to his wife, Celeste, who not only introduced him to the sport but also took him on his first bike vacation. Soon after taking that first bike tour, Shannon was planning custom private bike vacations. As a professional municipal planner, the organization came naturally, and it wasn’t long before he made the shift to the bike tour business full-time.

Shannon named the business VELO VIEW as a tribute to the unique way the world is seen from the saddle of your bike. Promoting and sharing that perspective is what Velo View Bike Tours is all about.

Velo View was founded in 2012 in Austin, Texas, and initially offered bike vacation packages in destinations around the country, from California to Colorado to the Carolinas. However, after relocating to Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2016 and discovering the incredible wealth of world-class cycling opportunities in his new backyard (road, mountain & gravel), the focus of the business shifted to custom tours in the Chattanooga tri-state region, offering flexible vacation options for groups of any size on any budget.

Velo View also began producing bike ride events in 2017 as a way to introduce event more cyclists to the fantastic bike riding the Chattanooga region has to offer. Stay tuned for more unique and exciting events down the road!

Celeste is still off the bike with a hand injury so it was back into the woods this weekend for more winter hiking. So many beautiful places to explore here! This weekend we hit Stone Door, Cloudland Canyon, and Edwards Point. This shot is from #cloudlandcanyonstatepark with #hemlockfalls in the distance.
