What’s the bike scene like in Nashville for females?
Honestly, the whole bike “scene” (I wouldn’t even call it a scene) is really relaxed here. It’s much more of a small group of friends who like to ride together. Like most places there are more guys than girls riding, but it’s a lot more about how you ride rather than whether you’re male or female. I’d really love if more girls got seriously into riding here though.
What’s your favourite ride right now?
It really depends on what I’m doing. I love my Cinelli Vigorelli for every day riding, commuting, and that’s what I’m still tricking on at the moment (until I build up my Shop 14 ESB), but I also love going on longer riders on my Cinelli XLR8R (road bike).
Where’s your favourite place to ride?
For sure Nashville. You can get anywhere on a bike here and it’s a fairly bike friendly city (it could certainly be greatly improved, but it’s not the worst either).
