On Friday, Nashville celebrated Bike to Work Day along with most of the rest of the country.
Nashville’s event was in our Public Square, in front of the relatively new courthouse.
As in most cities, people rode in from all parts of town to partake in coffee and breakfast, and to meet other cyclists.
Maybe nothing out of the ordinary, except that Nashville’s Bike to Work Day this year was the biggest ever.
The bike racks were full and the crowd was ready to be addressed by Mayor Karl Dean, who had biked in himself.
After a donut, a banana and some conversation I headed in to work with a group of friends. It was a great way to start the day.
See Lauren’s blog for another take on the day (she kindly shared her pictures since my camera is hiding somewhere)—and the official Nashville Bike to Work FB page has some great pics too.
Cycling is really taking off in Nashville these days—it’s so exciting and fun to see the number of cyclists on the street and at events like this growing.
Did your city bike to work last Friday? How’d it go?
