KNOW BEFORE YOU GO!

  • Tour participants are required to wear a helmet and follow the rules of the road. Watch the video to your right to learn your rights and responsibilities!
  • Police officers will direct traffic at busy intersections. Follow the commands of officers and obey traffic control devices.
  • Be courteous on the greenways! Nashville's greenways have a 15 mile per hour speed limit. Signal your passes and yield to pedestrians and slower greenway users.
  • Exercise caution on greenway bridges and when crossing railroad tracks. Watch out for slippery conditions to avoid falls!
  • Perform an ABC Quick Check before you ride. Look for Air in your tires, functioning Brakes, and a clean, tight, and well lubricated Chain and drivetrain. Check for loose bolts and Quick Release skewers. Visit one of Music City's excellent bicycle shops if you need a hand!
