Just a quickie post to let ya’ll know we are still in Nashville and are enjoying a little break from the road. We’ve been diving into the local bike culture in Nashville and are thoroughly enjoying ourselves, crabby drivers notwithstanding. Some snaps from the last few days…

The inside of one of Nashville’s new and funky bike shops – Halcyon.

Halcyon has some communal bike stands on their exterior wall!

We meet Jeff and Carolyn, our first homestay hosts in town. Jeff, like myself, were bloggers for the wonderful BikeCommuters.com.

The folks at TenkaraUSA sent me one of their rods to try out on our trip. It’s lightweight and amazingly collapses into itself. I haven’t taken it through all its paces yet, but be sure a review is in the works.

We check out Nashville Bicycle Lounge and get acquainted with Dan, the owner.

Dan, aside from running the shop is also intensely passionate about bike advocacy in Nashville. We’re expecting great things from his shop in the future!

Our host and longtime reader, Rich, took us on a tour of downtown Nashville.

Laura interacts with some art.

I managed a little urban fly fishing and pulled out this beautiful longear from the Cumberland.

We also met up with Trisha from the wonderful and stylish bike blog – LetsGoRideABike.com.

We’re having a blast and are immensely enjoying some wonders of modern technology that we have not had access to, namely refrigeration (cold beer) and air-conditioning! There is still tons to explore and the more we poke around the more we are discovering the bike scene in Nashville that seems about ready to explode.

As a gentle reminder – our presentation at Nashville Bicycle Lounge is THIS Saturday at 5pm. Check out the Facebook Event Page and don’t forget to RSVP.
