Nashville Problem

Looking for some advice from local Nashvillians. I'm a new cyclist, and decided to bike from downtown Nashville to Music Valley Opryland area. I used the Shelby St pedestrian bridge, the Shelby Bottoms greenway, and had to "trespass" thru Gaylord Opryland's headquarters parking lot. There is simply no other feasible way to get to Opry Mills/Music Valley. Does anyone else go this route and if you do, can you provide any alternatives? I don't want to give cyclists a bad name by cutting through a company's private property.

There is a member here from Nashville called Nashcomguy (or something very similar). Perhaps you could shoot him a PM for some advice.

The quickest way without going through gaylord is to carry your bike over the rocks on the left after you exit the tunnel. You can get onto Briley Pkwy like that. I work for Gaylord and still feel bad when I cut through there, plus you never know if the gate will be open at the bottom of the hill.

We do, but now I'll check to see if that's ok. I had never imagined that was frowned upon. Last time leaving the hotel area, we took McGavick to the back side of McGavick Park to get back on the green way, which took much longer than getting on Briley for 2 minutes up hill. Plus, McGavick was pretty close quarters.

ok, I did some research... Pkwy's are out. Taking the greenway to mcGavick is the only "ok" route.

Metro does have a future greenway planned behind Gaylord's headquarters, but there is no funding yet.
