Route # 10

Wednesday August 26th. We meet every Wednesday at 11th & Holly at 6pm.

This route is awesome, with one of the greatest hills in East Nashville, but you need to be extra cautious at one particular intersection.   Right before the three mile mark, you turn left onto 14th from Sevier.   At the intersection of 14th and Sevier, you need to stop, cross over 14th and run on the sidewalk.   Please pass this along to your fellow runners!

Route #10: The Electric Slide

Being Good Neighbors

Dear fellow runners,

Thanks for following ideas on being a good neighbor for the last 12 weeks; in short, being aware of what’s going on around us is the common theme on which to close this column. Whether that’s by knowing with whom we’re sharing the road or paths, who can help us to improve intersections, when are we breaking the rules, how voting may be influential, how the city’s evolving, or how to get involved.

A few months ago an electronic forum was started by some of the BPAC members. The bike/ped advisory committee was formed many years ago as an advisory group to the mayor by a group of influential volunteers.  The 6 or so annual meetings are open; East Nasty has been in attendance there for over a year. I’d encourage taking your thoughts or concerns to the forum or meetings and learning from some of the most involved in the city, and seeing what’s new.

Thanks for reading over the past few weeks. Let’s continue making East Nashville a great place to run. More work has been done in the forum on the bike/ped aspect of the candidates for the runoff election. Remember September 10 to vote again!!
