USBR 23 Route Evaluation Rides

During the last few months, Bruce Day and Dave Shumaker have met with city officials and bicycling community stakeholders to obtain suggestions and support for USBR 23.  This will be the first USBR in Tennessee and will provide a designated bicycle route connecting Bowling Green, KY through White House, Nashville, Franklin, and Lewisburg, TN to Huntsville, AL.  We have now consolidated suggestions into two separate North/South routes from White House to Franklin.

We plan a final evaluation of both routes.  The Nashville center point for both of the routes is Cumberland Park, on South 1st Street at the eastern end of the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge.

We invite you (and others you wish to invite) to join us to ride and critique these route options. The rides will start at 9:00 AM each of two consecutive Saturdays.  Cue sheets and maps will be provided so that all riders will be accommodated whether fast, medium or slow.
