A new mayor in Nashville provides hope for biking in the city
"Nashville faced an unexpected distinction in 2023 – it was crowned America’s worst commuting city, surpassing urban hubs like New York and Los Angeles."
New mayor Freddie O’Connell is apparently a trusted advocate for the cycling community. I have a trip to Nashville tentatively planned this summer, so hopefully I can try some biking around town and see what it's like.
A Nashville Vision Zero 15-member task force will convene for the first time on Jan. 30. I was interested in this quote from the article:
"Everyone wants to slow down cars, and the city knows how to do it."
I sure don't think everyone wants to slow down cars in my city!
