Routing assistance please? Nashville area to Memphis area
Hi. I'm planning a ride from the north end of the Natchez Trace Parkway southwest of Nashville, TN to the Mississippi River Trail in West Memphis, Arkansas/Memphis, TN area.
I've looked at mapmyrides and googlemaps as well as others which has given me a basic route. Unfortunately, these tools don't REALLY give great info on such things as shoulder width, traffic levels or rumble strips on the shoulder area. I've also taken a look at the TDoT site and gotten a bit of help there.
Any suggestions or comments, especially on current/upcoming road construction on potential routes would be appreciated.
Thanks for the link. That's one of the potential routes I had identified.
I was hoping someone who lived in the area, in either city or in between might comment - I trust gov't reports about as far as I can throw them. wink
Just one small warning. Hwy100 was rumble-striped last year. Basically none of the shoulder in some parts are unusable to bikes. I'm not sure how far they went with it, but most of it in Davidson County was that way the last time I rode out there. Other than that, looks good. Good luck.
Please report on how it goes. My goal is to one day ride from Bristol to Memphis and would definitely like to hear how the route is.
