Nashville, Tn

I am moving to the North Nashville area and wondering how the road cycling is in this area? I like to do 20-50 mile rides.

There are bikeways all in and around Nashville.
Here's a link to maps and info:https://www.nashville.gov/Public-Wor...y-Bikeway.aspx
and another site: https://www.walkbikenashville.org/maps

My daughter lived SW of Nashville for a while out in Liepers Fork, and although I didn't get a chance to ride there, the area surrounding that looked very attractive to riding. - nice scenery and lack of auto traffic. Of course the Natchez Trace is out that direction, too.

I don't know that much about the riding on the north side, though.

I moved here (about 80 east of Nashville) 4 years ago and found that every bike I've found shop around here sets up/operates local 15 to 50 mile rides usually twice a week. Rural roads are great, low traffic and most larger ones have wide berms. But it is hilly!
