Williamson county has always had a lot of recreational cyclist, but now that fuel has become a little more expensive, and sometimes harder to find, you seem them more during rush hour. Unfortunately, our roads do not have a lane for bikers, and people are usually surprised when they come up on a biker moving at a mush slower pace that the rest of the traffic.
I know that Brentwood has bike paths that are recreational in nature, and really aren't designed to get you to work, so if recreation is your plan, it's a good way to go. Using your bike to commute in the Nashville area may be more dangerous than going to war. One biker has already died this summer riding in Franklin, so please be careful, and obey the laws. I personally have almost hit a biker who ran s stop sign when I didn't expect it.
