In the five or so years that I’ve been bike commuting to work — I shoot for at least twice a week — I’ve come into the Wedgewood/Houston area by the Fairgrounds from Brentwood, 12South, West Nashville and Belle Meade. I recently moved the Donelson area, making for what is now my longest commute: 12.5 miles each way.  There’s a shorter and more direct route, but the way I’ve chosen so far includes both the Stones River and Shelby Bottoms Greenways, as well as jaunts through a couple of nice Doneslon neighbors, Downtown Nashville and a few industrial areas. It’s a dynamic ride on my ridiculously heavy Marin City Larkspur, that in many ways, makes me feel more connected to Nashville than previous commutes.  I started taking some photos along the way and posting them on my Facebook page. Here are some of my favorites.
