What we're about

Nashville Slow Ride…

….….is a group of recreational and utility cyclists cruising the streets and greenways of Nashville and Davidson County. We include those who just started and experienced riders who just want a leisurely ride through the city. The purpose of NSR is to create informal bike rides for people of average riding abilities. Groups can be two or twenty.

The organizers manage the Slow Ride page but it's up to you to create and lead the rides. If you don't schedule a ride don't blame us when you're riding all alone. Feel free to contact the organizer with any questions. He’s a really great guy.

Slow Ride is entirely free but if you like what we’re doing send us a few bucks via Paypal to help with expenses or go here:

Need to Know

Slow ride is entirely voluntary and the organizer is responsible for the website but not the rides. If you don’t see a ride you like start one yourself.

Read the description of a Meetup ride closely. If you think it might be too fast or too slow or too long contact the organizer and ask questions. If you’re leading a ride make it clear about your expectations of riders. Slow is fast to some people and intermediate is really unclear. Some people don’t want to get off the greenway so make it clear about your route.

If you post a scheduled charity ride (such as Tour de Nash) you must be willing to lead a Slow Ride group at the event. We have had some confusion when these rides are posted but no one leads a Slow Ride Meetup group.

Our leaders are volunteers and not paid professionals, but one of the group's goals is to make sure everyone has a fun and safe time at events. However, your personal safety is your responsibility.

Meetup.com's terms of service agreement specifically says that members join any and all meetups at their own risk and cannot hold meetup.com or its organizers and other members liable for damages.

After a Slow Ride please return to this site and rate the event and if you feel like it type in some comments or post photos. This helps us plan future events and please upload photos to each event page.
