Living in Nashville?mbologna

Hi all. I just found out that I'll be relocating to Nashville. I've never been there, so I have no idea about the city, areas to live in, what the riding is like, etc. All I know at this point is that I'll be working downtown. If you live in the Nashville area and can provide any information, particularly about areas to live in, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!
Mark

I moved here June 1st 2003 from So. California and I will never go back. I love it here. I live in Williamson county (specifically Franklin) which is south of Nashville. A bit more expensive than Nashville but compared to So Cal it is cheap. We built our house and it was finished at Thanksgiving. It is an 18mile commute to Downtown and traffic is alot less south of Nashville then on the east or North side. Williamson is better family oriented but if you are single it may not be the happening place to be.
Nashville people are great and it seams like 1/2 the people here are from other places so they are really helpful and welcoming to newcommers.

The riding in Williamson county is excellent. Alot of country back roads.
Harpeth Bike Club is the group I got started with when I moved. Excellent club and the website is harpethbikeclub.com. Good group but I am going to try racing this year and I am now with Cumberland Transit.

Feel free to E-mail me if you have any more specific questions, etc.

which experiencing the lack of it in Memphis makes me realize it keeps a community vibrant. Franklin area is really nice and a beautiful suburb. If prefer more "urban" (not in the NYC definition) Green HIlls and West End areas are growing and re-developing.

I did read a year or so ago that it overtook Atlanta for the longest time in a car for a commute (or some other measure of sprawl). This may have been "won" back by Atlanta. It surprised me but I think it had to do with how far away the 'burbs are from Downtown.
