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

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!


WHEN
Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
WHERE
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.

[Wild Outside] Episode 12: Ben Friberg & Chattajack

Posted by Seth Bigham on

This week we sat down with Ben Friberg to discuss endurance paddling, Chattajack 31, and the future of SUP in Chattanooga, TN. 

Ben is an endurance athlete who, in 2012, set the Guiness World Record for the longest distance travelled on a SUP in 24 hours at 238 miles! He then went on to be the first person to paddle from Cuba to the US on a SUP in 2013. 

Ben and his wife, Kimberley, have long given back to the community through hosting their weekly local race series and putting on Chattajack, the massive paddle board race through the TN River gorge.
