Hello from Nashville

Hello all!

My name is Cara and I am in the Nashville area. I have ridden bicycles casually for years but am just now getting more serious about cycling for exercise and as a means of commuting to work. In my search for a road bike I ended up going vintage and now find myself very interested in vintage (80's) road bikes.

I am currently riding a 1985 Peugeot PH-501 that I did a relay tri with and I just purchased a 1987 Nishiki Modulous. I also ride an old Sears bike converted to a fixie. I'm hoping to learn to do more of my own tune-ups and repairs and have already benefitted a great deal from this site through Google searches so thought I should join.

Cara, welcome to the BF. I am from Memphis and just getting into cycling. I love riding my bike. I was walking every day this summer and saw bikers everyday on the Greenway and wanted to ride. SO I bought me a bike rack and now I am riding every day. Does Nashville have good off work paved Greenline?

We do have several greenways that I love biking, but I don't think we have anything like what you guys now have. I have family in Memphis so I'm hoping to get to bike that at some point.
