Hop on your bike this Saturday and cruise down Jefferson for the Jefferson St Art Crawl. Don't have a bike yet? We'll hook you up. Hosted by the folks from NorfWall Collective, and the galleries and businesses on Jefferson St.
Stop by the shop and celebrate some good local art with us.
PS: Gotta mention that one of the guys from NorfWall is DoughJoe who also happens to be one of our tour guides and the artist behind the mural on the side of the shop. Here are some pics of when he was painting. Thanks to JUMP and Mapco for chipping in to help us with supplies and compensating DoughJoe for his work.
#RideNorf features some of the artists that rocked Jefferson St back in the day; Jimi Hendrix, Etta James, Ray Charles, Marion James, and Little Richard cruisin' on bikes.
This little guy stopped by the shop the other day to get his picture with Jimi. When I asked him what his name was, he said 'Hendrix'! Ride on!
Have you been on one of our guided bike tours yet? This year's tours promise to be better than ever. We've combined all of the best locations and experiences from the past 4 years.
Starting from our new shop on Jefferson St offers us even better access to some of Nashville's best Greenways and most historic sites - in addition to some nice, shady trees ...
Book your tour here - our spring dates fill up fast!
The dust has settled, and the cake is baked (thanks to Richard's mom), and the shop is open. Come on down to Jefferson Street. We'll be here.
This week is moving week. We'll let you know when we get the new shop open for business.
Thanks to Edgehill Village and the Edgehill and Music Row neighbors for being so great to us for the last 4 years. Too many people to thank.
See you on Jefferson St!
