Working site for TN Route network

Each section of the network will have its own blog entry with links to relevant resources. Comment boxes are for suggestions and updates that may then be incorporated into the main post. Note: Proposed Routes are listed On the right panel. You may click on these and comment as in a regular post. However, it is a good idea to send me an email a bruceeday at gmail dot com

Update on Route through Nashville, Adding USBR21

A lot is happening. David Shumaker is moving the Franklin, KY to Ardmore, AL route along. He has set up a meeting with the Mayor of White House, TN,  to discuss the route with him and his office.  White House has been very proactive with cycle infrastructure, having one of the first multiuse paths in the area and recently getting bike lanes striped on the shoulders of US 31 W  through the city.  We expect a friendly house but are still nervous about our first go at whipping up community support.  Dave has also solicited the support of Walk Bike Nashville in setting a route through Nashville. Walk Bike Nashville plans a meeting with community input for January, 2013.
Next, Rick Robinson of London, KY, has contacted us about moving along USBR 21 which would connect Lexington, KY with Knoxville, TN, Chattanooga, TN then on to Atlanta, GA.  I know very little about that part of Tennessee but hope to get some support from cyclists in the area.
The renewed activity causedme to revisit the Adventure Cycling USBR website. They have a lot of new, useful information. Worth spending a few hours with.
