Back home, I always considered “the north” to be EXTREME north. Basically the Canadian border. It’s lake-effect snow, sub-zero winters, local skiing, maple syrup fresh from the tree and basically any scene from Fargo. Living in Nashville, I’m learning that “the north” means anything upwards of Tennessee, where it’s not uncommon to cut down your Christmas tree in a t-shirt. And I’m kinda torn.
I LOVE snow. I love not having to keep my summer and winter clothes on call. But I’m also a little obsessed with being able to go on bike rides around town, drinking my tea outside, and not having to heat up the car 20 minutes before getting in. So to celebrate my first official Nashville winter, and this lovely warmer-than-usual holiday season, I took my sweet little bicycle around the city to some of my less regular spots in the spirit of exploring. And I have pictures!
I loved partnering with Brooklyn Bicycle Co. on this because their bikes really are the cutest (they make WONDERFUL gifts), and they’re all about the little adventures. Check them out and let me know which bike is your favorite! Mine is the Calyer. IN love.
