National Bike Month rolls on in Nashville

Earlier this week, Dottie mentioned all the awesome events going on in Chicago for National Bike Month. We’ve got lots going on here in Nashville, too! Last Sunday, I led a Bike Brunch + MetroCenter Ride, which miraculously was rain-free. Also a miracle: That another cyclist came by, the first we’d seen all day, just in time to take this photo.

Next week is the biggest week yet: Wednesday is the Ride of Silence, Friday is Bike to Work Day, and Saturday is the Tour de Nash! We just found out that Mike Wolfe from “American Pickers” will be leading the Family Ride. I’m hoping he’ll be on some sort of awesome vintage machine…

Check out the calendar for more details on those and other events.

Rhinestone Cowboy Ride!

We had great weather and a great crowd for the Rhinestone Cowboy Ride in Nashville on Saturday.

We met at new local bike shop The Hub and rode together downtown to Robert’s Western World, a honky tonk, of course!

Dottie and I spent Friday afternoon scouring South Nashville thrift shops to find outfits that would really make an impact. I think we succeeded.

But the rest of the participants were no slouches, either.

One thing’s for sure: Nashville is willing to turn out for themed rides! Thanks to everyone who came out. Hope you’ll join us next time.
