Nashville Slow Ride "News"

From: Carey R.
Sent on: Monday, July 28, 2014 1:13 PM

I just returned from a bike ride on a beautiful day and since I haven’t spammed your in-box lately I decided to write to the 900 members of the Nashville Slow Ride Meetup. Since most of you have never been on one of our rides I hope you can join us in the next few months. If you don’t see one that suits your riding style please schedule your own customized ride.


You can suggest a Meetup by clicking on the + Schedule a Meetup Link on the front page.


You will then be asked for a name, date, time, place, etc.  Then click schedule this Meetup. Anyone can suggest a ride and it will be announced to the group when two other members agree to attend or it can be announced by an organizer. Make sure you thoroughly describe the type of ride, the distance and the meeting place and then just show up to ride with your new friends.

You might want to join the regular Wednesday night ride or set your calendar for the Full Moon Ride on August 10.

There are currently two suggested Meetups without dates that you may find of interest.


There are two popular charity rides coming up in the next few months in Murfreesboro and Clarksville. The HOT 100  explores rural Rutherford County (with some hills) and is expertly organized by the Murfreesboro Bicycle Club and the Sunrise Century in Clarksville is advertised as the flattest century ride around the area.


It’s not too late to join the National Bike Challenge and help out the NSR team.  We’re 174th in the nation and our 24 riders have completed over 9,600 miles since May.


I did my part by completing 380 miles the week of July 13 by riding from Washington DC to Pittsburg, PA. If you ever get a chance to ride the C and O Canal Path and the Great Allegheny Passage I highly recommend the trip. This page is a great planning tool.  If you have nothing better to do here are some pictures of my trip.



Please support our friends at Walk Bike Nashville and Bike Walk Tennessee and then go ride your bike.



P.S.  The Meetup dues bill was paid in July by donations from some of our members. Thanks to all of you who donated and funded the next six months of Slow Rides.


Remember we also have a Facebook page.
