Always wanted to cross our state by bicycle? Me too. (The short and easy way.) Here's our chance - FOGBEE Bicycle Club, Walk/Bike Tennessee, and other dedicated cyclists have put together an event to do just that, using the newly created USBR-23 official bike route. This is a free event.
Each participant will make their own arrangements, but with the benefit of having the route, time table, accompanying riders, and a sag wagon all provided for you. This should make it a fun and (relatively) easy adventure.
Visit Walk/Bike Nashville's website (or see the Newsletter that Carey Rogers recently posted) to register for the event, or get more details. The FOGBEE site also has excellent detailed information. They have done a fantastic amount of work and put together a wonderful plan. It is setup so that each rider can as short or long a section they wish, up to a 6 day looping out and back if they want. My plan is to simply start at the KY state line, riding Thurs., Fri., and Saturday, and take the van back from Ardmore Alabama back to Nashville Saturday night.
When we get closer to departure we can plan out exactly how we want to arrange our tour, and lay out our driving, ride sharing, etc. See you there!
