bicycle tour stones river national battlefield

For those who like history, the outdoors and bicycling, Stones River National Battlefield has a great event for you. Since April, they’ve offered ranger guided bicycle tours of the Battlefield on Saturdays. The tours continue through October and provide a great opportunity to get some exercise and learn local history.

Tours will not be offered when special events are scheduled.

On the tour, you’ll learn about the major Civil War battle that occurred in late 1862 and early 1863. This program will take visitors through the battlefield using the tour road and the Stones River Greenway.

At several points during the ride, the ranger will stop to discuss the major military actions that affected the outcome of the Battle of Stones River. Some of the stories included are the fighting in Slaughter Pen, the desperate stand of the Union army along the Nashville Pike, and the terrible climax to the battle that bloodied the banks of the Stones River.

Participants will meet at the visitor center at 8:45 am with their bikes. Children, ages 16 and under must wear safety helmets, and all other participants are encouraged to wear them as well. The tour will begin at 9 am. The ride will travel up to seven miles and last about ninety minutes.

The tour is free and you can learn more here or by calling 615-893-9501.
