NOTICE: TIME CHANGE!!! Ride now starts at 8:00am!!!
Lets meetup and bike to East Nashville's Tomato Fest, voted best festival four years in a row. (This is a joint meetup with 'embedded Nashville'.) The Tomato Fest includes art, food, vendors, costumes, and lots of great musical entertainment. It all kicks off with a 'Big Easy' style 2nd line parade, which starts at 9am, and runs from 10-4.
Our Greenway ride starts with spectacular views of the Cumberland River, rolls thru Shelby Bottom & Shelby Park, then along Davidson, 5th St., & Woodland to the Five Points Area. We will have plenty of time for this 5 mile cruise to make the start of the kick-off parade.
After the parade, we can decide when/where to meet for the 5 mile ride back, after allowing time to visit the various festival venues. Some folks may want to leave directly, or some may wish to stay and make a day of it on their own. (Hey, we're flexible here!) If you don't wanna ride, just meet us in front of Bongo Java at 107 S.11th for the start of the parade. If you wear a costume you can join the parade! (warning: it's hot!)
Come on out and let's celebrate summer!
