“As a Middle Tennessee transplant and new cyclist I was reluctant to get out of my neighborhood until reading this book. The format was clear and I could venture out without risking getting totally lost or ending up on some super dangerous roadway. The commentary that accompanies each route lends interest to the rides and the numerous hints and guides for more information in the back were extremely helpful. This book is worth reading even for an experienced cycling native Nashvillian.” —Amazon.com reviewer
