Shannon Bowers is biking the Natchez Trace Parkway from Nashville, Tennessee to Natchez, Mississippi in honor of her brother, Braden Bowers who died while bicycling. She is hoping to bring greater awareness of the need for barriers in medians of four-lane and interstate highways.
It’s not uncommon to find joggers, bikers, RVers, and motorcyclists happily sharing the road on the Natchez Trace Parkway. And sometimes, you’ll even see a horseback rider or two! Plus, you’ve got your road walkers, and tourists hopping in & out of their cars in the process of snapping photographs, and even those who like to walk across the one-of-a-kind bridges found on the Natchez Trace. Share the road?… Yep, on the Natchez Trace Parkway we do!
