This is our friend Noemie. She is a brave adventurer. We met Noemie about a week ago, when she came into the shop looking for a bicycle.
“I want to ride a bicycle to Memphis! And New Orleans! And California!” she proclaimed in a Swiss accent. So, we introduced her to the pink and cream beauty you see above, and it was love at first sight.
Luckily, Noemie stuck around Nashville for a while, gracing us with her presence. She left yesterday, and is currently somewhere on the Natchez Trace. We are thinking about you and wish you the best of travels, Noemie! Come back soon.
We salute you, handbuilt wheels.
Thank you, Google. The new “Bike There” option for Google Maps could potentially be the answer to many cyclists’ prayers. It is about time that a standardized bicycle routing system was created, and who better than Google to provide it. Let’s hope that it will include elevation information…
Right now, Google is taking suggestions for where their “trike cam” should go that cars cannot: greenways, park trails, etc. The deadline for suggestions is October 28th, and we have to get our region involved. Not only would it be great for our community of cyclists, but it would be invaluable to traveling cyclists who come through our area. Please contact Google and tell them where you want their maps to go.
