New to Nashville
Hi everyone! I just arrived on Sunday from Massachusetts, and I'd like to start getting to know the riding seen around my new city. I'm basically a roadie/road racer, looking for some good local routes, folks to ride with, good group rides. Ultimately, I might want to join one of the local racing teams, though I intend to spend some time "on the market" at first. I'll probably join the Vanderbilt cycling team straight off (I'm a grad student at Vandy), but that doesn't start up for another month and half or so. I'm used to riding in a very rural environment, so riding in the city is pretty weird at the moment. I'm hoping to get out of town, but I have to admit that I'm pretty afraid of getting lost at the moment. I've found NashvilleCyclist.com, which has a lot of useful information, but it doesn't seem terribly up-to-date and it would be nice to talk to local riders in person.
Suggestions, links, greetings are welcome! Thanks.
