Walk/Bike Nashville has been working extremely hard (and well) to make Nashville a pedestrian and cyclist friendly city, and tonight they will hold their annual meeting to discuss successes of the last year and present awards for Nashvillians who helped make the city more walkable/bikeable in 2009.
The meeting takes place at 6:45 at the downtown Farmers Market, but folks will be meeting at “a watering hole of their choice” in Germantown at 5:30 and walking from 5th and Madison at 6pm to the Farmers Market.
If you can’t attend tonight, please check out the Walk/Bike Nashville website, which has a lot of information, and consider becoming a member of this important local non-profit. It is $20 per individual, $30 for a family, and $100 for an institution. Awesome.
Smell so good out of the package, look even better. DANG.
