O.K. O.K. I get it, no face paint.
I am totally laughing my ass off at the facepaint comment. I never knew a suggestion by someone other than myself would create so much laughter in my life. It was an I see I told you moment. Some U.T. college guy thought it would be cool. I think it was beer induced but, hey, who am I to judge. Any way as far as the greenways are concerned, there is a connector when you go under the bridge from the kroger parking lot going east. That greenway with a posted speed limit sign, no doubt, dumps you out onto Murphy road. This is a safe non-congested road to ride on. There are a couple of connected side streets that dump you out on to 31st ave and the worst part, if you are not the road riding type is riding Blakemore to 16th av going down to Demonbreun to 4th, going through the Schermerhorn and crossing the pedestrian bridge. The route continues on the Shelby bottoms greenway to the connector bridge that then connects to the stones river greenway and ends at the Percy Priest Dam. The friends I rode with took the opportunity to sprint on the big climbs, which I think there are three. If you have ridden those greenways, you know which ones I am talking about. I really appreciate the feedback and would like some ideas concerning getting the word out. Thanks for the the face paint and terrorist comments. They're great, keep em' coming, I print them and send them to him.
