JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WATE) — Taco Trek combines biking and tacos. It was started by a few friends who got together to ride their bikes and get some tacos on a taco Tuesday night.

One of those friends is Chad Wolfe. He opened the Trek Bike Store in downtown Johnson City roughly six years ago. Little did he know, that that ride for tacos in April 2015 would grow and grow and grow.
