What we're about

Nashville Slow Ride…
….is a participatory group and you are responsible for organizing group rides. The organizers sometimes lead groups but if you want a ride then schedule one when and where you want. See who shows up to join you. If you have a problem using the website, contact me for assistance.

NSR is intended for recreational and utility cyclists using the streets and greenways of Nashville and Davidson County. The purpose of NSR is to create informal bike rides for people of average riding abilities. Groups can be two or twenty. We are not into lycra and fast bike rides.

Slow ride is entirely voluntary and the organizer is responsible for the website but not the rides.

Slow Ride is entirely free to members 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
Ride 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.

Pedal Forward - FTW-Only Ride

Needs a location

Join us for our LAST regular FTW (femme/trans/women) group bicycle ride of 2022! Any time is great to ride, of course, but it's even better when it's with new bike friends. This ride is no-drop, slow roll, centering new and returning riders. A brief maintenance topic will be covered at the beginning of the ride (if there's interest).

(What’s FTW? Check out this blog post from Grease Rag {Minneapolis} supporter Emily on FTW rides and their meaning.)

This ride will center returning and new riders who hope to gain confidence and knowledge about riding a bike. Rides will be between 6-10 miles. No rider left behind. We will traverse streets and greenways.

We will be at Ted Rhodes golf course clubhouse parking lot, meet 5:30 roll 6p. Weather updates on the Bike Fun Twitter account https://twitter.com/NashBikeFun by 3p on the day of the ride. (If weather looks uncertain, we'll update there.)

Don't have a bike or can't bring one with you? I WISH YOU COULD rent a BCycle from the station at the trailhead BUT YOU CAN'T RIGHT NOW. Closest BCycle station to the ride start is over in Germantown at 5th & Monroe. It's about 2 1/2 to 3ish miles to get to the golf course from there.

**Note: if you have questions please text KJ at[masked] or email [masked] in advance!**
