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!
