Old Hank made hits, and we're all sure that you will, but I don't think Hank done it this way…
It's the best time of year - Toecutters season is nearly upon us!! We’re kicking off this year in Music City: Nash Vegas, Tennessee.
Here's the Plan:
We'll load a van up with bikes Friday after work, and have time for a cold beverage or two before we stop in Chattanooga for dinner. (Probably Hickory Pit; should we mention this? Place is kinda famous)
We've rented a whole house in the Gulch right downtown in Nashville, with a rooftop deck for sunsets and morning coffee. (We should pick a rooftop deck from one of the properties just for a pic to show how nice the house is) There are 8 bedrooms, with a dozen beds, so nobody's sleeping in the bathtub.
When we wake up, after that first cup of coffee with a view, we’ll cruise to the world famous Loveless Cafe for their killer breakfast before rolling out of their parking lot and onto the Natchez Trace Parkway for a road ride. With no commercial traffic, and strict "use full lane" rules for cyclists, Natchez Trace is a seemingly endless stretch of gentle rolling hills and breathtaking scenery. We'll stop halfway for lunch, and have the Toecutters Sag Wagon in tow with all the snacks and drinks you could ever want.
When we finish, we'll come back to the house, roll slow around downtown, check out Broadway and a honky tonk or two, and get down to business - Nashville hot chicken at Prince's washed down with ice cold beers.
Sunday morning, breakfast is at Biscuit Love. We consider ourselves biscuit connoisseurs, and Biscuit Love is excellent without fail. With full stomachs and happy hearts, we'll head South to Hickman County, TN for a 50 mile gravel ride through some of the state’s most scenic dirt roads, past sleepy cows and excitable farm dogs.
After lunch, (do we need to say where?) we head back to Atlanta early enough for Sunday supper.
