Nashville’s largest urban bike ride cycles into its 20th year

Plus, there’s a new Tour de Nash twist for non-bike riders on event day, Saturday, May 18.

Tour de France Nash, the city’s largest urban bike ride, is celebrating its 20th anniversary on Saturday, May 18 in a spoketacular way.

For the first time, the Walk Bike Nashville event will feature a half-mile Open Streets component at the start/finish line — 51st Avenue in the Nations. If you’re new to the concept, it’s when streets transform into park space for the day, free of vehicles. This means anything you can do at a greenspace or playground goes — from creating your own parklet or picnic to chalk art, music, and games. Just be sure to claim your spot.

Registration for cyclists is open through Friday, May 17 for the 45-mile, 25-mile, 9-mile, and kid’s routes — all experience levels and riding styles welcome.
