Team Green Tuesdays: Fall Hikes This Weekend!

This weekend is Thanksgiving, which means we are all bound to eat far too much food as we sit around a table on Thursday with our friends and family. It also means that the beginning of the Holiday season will be fully upon us. Team Green Adventures will be offering a few different events this weekend to help you walk off that turkey and stuffing and forget about the sales.

Saturday our friends at Team Green Adventures are doing two different hikes, the Fall Colors Day Hike and the Intermediate Backpacking: Frozen Head Hike. 

The Fall Colors Day Hike will take place at Virgin Falls and be an 8 mile hike with beautiful views of Tennessee Fall. The trip starts at 7AM and is free for members of Team Green Adventures, but limited to 15 hikers.

The Intermediate Backpacking: Frozen Head trip starts at 7:30AM and will cover 10.5 of strenuous terrain, so if you're up for a challenge this is your trip. On the hike you'll travel to Lookout Tower for some amazing views of the surrounding area. The trip is free for members, $5 for nonmembers. More info on membership to Team Green Adventures. 

Before your hike make sure you having everything you need to get you through, including water filtration or water bottles. Stop by Cumberland Transit and we'll be glad to help you out.

One thing we love about Cumberland Transit is we have a true community of bike enthusiasts.

If you've ever wondered what you would do if you got a flat, or if you've had other problems with your breaks or gears, than you need to join our friends at Team Green Adventures and Walk Bike Nashville for this week's Bike Maintenance class.

Team Green Tuesdays: Rock Climbing Night!

Raise your hand if you've ever wanted to try rock climbing, but just haven't found the time to do it yet. I see you over there. Go ahead. Admit it. 

Nashville is lucky enough to have an amazing local climbing gym and climb community here, but many people are intimidated to go for the first time. That's why our friends at Team Green Adventures started their Beginners Climb Night every Tuesday night at Climb Nashville West.


If you're a Team Green Adventures member you'll get admission into the facility, belay lesson, and rental gear all for just $12 (normally a $37 value). Not a member? Come on Tuesday nights and still get in for just $17 with Team Green Adventures. Click to find out more about Team Green Adventures Membership.

Team Green Tuesdays: 14 Mile Bike Trip

Cumberland Transit is a proud supporter and sponsor of local outdoors group Team Green Adventures, so we wanted to do more to talk about what they're up to, and how you can get involved in their adventures! 

From their website: "Team Green Adventures is an outdoor adventure group created in 1996 by Lightning 100 (WRLT 100.1FM), Nashville’s Independent Radio Station. Our mission is to engage our listeners, fans, and the Nashville community in an active, sustainable, and healthy lifestyle. We promote active-living through fitness, community service, sustainable practices, and adventure!"

We really couldn't agree with their mission more, which is why we sponsor them! Every week I'll be trying to do a Team Green activity, or tell you about an upcoming activity. Now, I have to tell you, I'm not the most...fit, but I am ecstatic about growing stronger and getting outdoors more with the Nashville community. 

This weekend I joined with eight other bikers to enjoy a 14 mile group ride through Brentwood. I've got to say, I was truly nervous because I have previously only ridden on green ways and have done my best to avoid sharing a road with vehicles. The group leader, Keely, was fantastic at going over safety on the road and making sure I felt at ease before we started the trip. It was really a perfect day to ride around Old Natchez Trace with the Fall colors out in full force. The group is no drop, which meant that there was a ride lead, and a ride tail to ensure no one fell behind. I felt supported as a new biker and ended up having a great time! Check out the Team Green Adventures Calendar to find an upcoming bike, hike, camp, or even horse back riding trip! And don't forget that Cumberland Transit will always be here online or in our store on West End Ave in Nashville to make sure you have the gear you need to be #VentureReady!
