Franklin on Foot Bike Tours | Nashville Events
Local tour company Franklin on Foot launched a new bike tour program this week, offering small, guided tours of Franklin from the seat of a bike.
The company has two tour options to pick from: Scenic Franklin passes through the town’s most historic neighborhoods, coasts along the Harpeth River, and takes its tourists through the Pilkington Park and campus of O’More College of Art & Design. The Civil War Tour peddles through well-known, historic sites including Fort Granger, Collins Farm and Rest Haven Cemetery, as well as brings tourists through the Lotz House and Carter House, two Civil War era homes-turned-museums.
The bikes available for rental are 24-speed Fuji cruisers including high-quality helmets and a basket to place any personal belongings. Each bike is outfitted with safety equipment including bells, LED lights and reflectors.
Tours begin at 202 Second Ave. S. at the rear of Gallery 202 and happen during the daylight hours of the day. A four-hour tour costs $35 per person and a full day, eight-hour, tour costs $55 per person.
To make a reservation for a tour (they are only available by reservation) call 615-500-3808. For more information, visit www.franklinonfoot.com.
