Women/FTW-only Learn to Ride with Walk Bike Nashville. July 2021.

See the world from your saddle.

Coming up: Power your bike with pizza; morning rides begin; Strong Riding for All Riders resumes on Saturdays

BIKE CARE TIP
Check your chain for dryness & signs of wear. If your chain isn't properly lubricated, it won't shift smoothly & will eventually rust out. Chain life can vary based on the quality of the chain & the shifting habits of the rider - typically, you'll want to check chain stretch at least a couple times a year. Replacing a chain is MUCH CHEAPER than replacing all your other drivetrain parts (chainrings, cassette/freewheel), too!

EVENTS IN OCTOBER 2021
Rolling into cooler weather with rides, classes, & clinics for all levels of riders. Have an idea for a class or ride? Contact us!
Pizza Party!!! banner

Join pizza lovers & fellow bike riders for a 15ish mile jaunt from Centennial Park to Shelby Bottoms & back. 


On Saturday, October 2nd, we launch our journey at the James Robertson statue in Centennial Park. Meet at 10:30a, roll out at 10:45a; we'll stop & eat at a green space in Midtown & then roll back to Centennial Park.

The Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival is also taking place at Centennial, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor fun. Bike Fun will provide the pizzas; please bring a beverage or snack if you need it before we eat!
