Rentals POST Covid-19 Outbreak

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Hello, paddle friends.  We know you all have been waiting patiently for the world to return to somewhat-normal and the ability to get out and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities.  We have taken many hours to envision a safe, feasible rental strategy for *365 Paddle Pass* holders and hourly renters alike.  At this moment, rental times have been scaled back significantly to allow for proper cleaning measures on our rental fleet after each use.


For the month of August, we are performing rentals daily during specific pockets of time to allow for disinfecting of equipment between uses.  Please be sure to book in advance.  With limited availability, we will book up quickly.  

All L2 Crew members will arrive one hour before the first rental time in 100% good health.  We will be scanning each employee with a no-touch forehead thermometer.  All gear will be clean from the previous day for the first rentals of the new day.  Used life vests will be properly cleaned and hung to dry, with clean, dry life-vests supplied to the next round of rentals.  Disinfected equipment (kayaks + SUP) will be provided to the following rental time period. The L2 Crew will then clean all equipment used during the evening rentals, washed thoroughly and left to dry overnight for use the following day during set scheduled/cleaned rental times.

80% alcohol hand sanitizer is available at our rental station under Market Street Bridge in Coolidge Park for personal use before and after your rental.

As for the shop, all commonly touched surfaces get a good wipe down every 2 hours.  There is 80% alcohol hand sanitizer available for use at each entrance.  Masks are preferred when shopping in-store.  No public use of our restroom or changing room for the time being.  Curb-side pick-up is still an option if you would like to call with your order, or order online via and stop by for a pick-up.

We would love to get you out on the water this season, so please feel free to book in advance for all rentals.  


** If I've rented with L2 in the past and signed a safety waiver for past seasons, do I have to sign a new safety waiver for 2020?  ---- YES.  PLEASE BE SURE TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE RENTAL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE SECOND HALF OF THE RENTAL SAFETY VIDEO  **AND** SIGN A NEW RENTAL SAFETY WAIVER FOR 2020.  One waiver will cover you for the entirety of rentals during the year 2020.

Post-Riverbend River Clean Up Sweep

Posted by Kat Olinger on

Many thanks to our Scenic City community!  L2 Outside's June 23rd cleanup event for the downtown river area conjured almost 40 volunteers and several small businesses.

Congregating at 6:30am to plan the day's cleanup, Randy Whorton with Wild Trails helped to assign all volunteers helpful roles and determine which river areas to sweep for different teams.  From 7-9am, several trash bins were filled and miscellaneous items unearthed along the riverbanks.  

During the clean-up, L2 Outside provided 20 paddle boards and ten kayaks for volunteer use, as well as chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A.  Generous donations from other businesses included early morning coffee/paddle-fuel from Mean Mug Coffeehouse, and river aids via Wild Trails, Chattanooga Cycleboats and Chattanooga Paddleboards.

Much gratitude for all those who assisted in this year's Post-Riverbend River Clean Up.  We deeply appreciate your time donated and hope to see you on the river again for 2019!     The L2 Crew

Post-Riverbend River Clean Up

Tennessee River SUP & Kayak River Clean Up

Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 6:30 AM - meeting at L2 Outside, 131 River Street

Hello River Friends-

Just like you, we love clean rivers. The weekend following Riverbend we are stoked to host a river clean up project.

On Saturday June 23rd we will need 25 or more key volunteers to assist in a 2 hour river clean up campaign. We will send teams out from public launch under Market Street Bridge to go upstream and downstream to sweep the shoreline and pick up any litter that is in the water. L2 Outside will be donating 25 stand up paddle boards and 10 kayaks to assist with this project.

Please RSVP via the event page, located here. This allows us to track an expected headcount and manage supplies. This is a great way to clean our local river, get some sun, burn some calories, and help conserve the best asset of the River City. All you need to do is RSVP and then show up.

P.S. We will have FREE Chic-Fil-A biscuits for all volunteers. Thanks for making a difference!

Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
Public Launch under Market Street Bridge - River Street, Chattanooga, TN 37405

All those borrowing boards/kayaks from L2 Outside will want to arrive at our storefront about 6:30am for safety video watching and safety waiver signing.
