Team Lightning has been offering a wide variety of activities for the Nashville community, and beyond, thanks to the amazing support of our sponsors. These companies each support one or more of the five Team Lightning pillars: Adventure, Community Service, Sustainability, Wellness, or Listener Socials.

Private: Nashville B-cycle (Adventure Partner)

Launched in December 2012, Nashville B-cycle is a fee-based bike-SHARE initiative, operated by the Nashville Downtown Partnership, a nonprofit management organization. Nashville B-cycle annual members can log into their online account to track their mileage and calories burned! Using these measurements, Nashville B-cycle demonstrates the health and environmental benefits of bike-sharing in the community. With adjustable seat posts, a basket to stow belongings, automatic lights, three speeds, internal gears to help keep clothes clean, and over 30 B-stations in Nashville, these bikes are perfect for everyone to use for a variety of commuting needs! Lunch dates, shopping trips, meetings, or a quick ride along Nashville’s beautiful greenways for fresh air and exercise can now be accomplished with no emissions, no gas, no traffic, and no hassle. After all, what better alternative fuel is there, than YOU?

Urban Green Lab (Workshop Partner)

Urban Green Lab is Nashville’s first hub for sustainable living. The non-profit group offers hands-on educational workshops that focus on sustainable living practices such as urban gardening, home weatherization, energy efficiency and water conservation. This first-of-its-kind-in-Nashville organization is designed to “bridge the gap” between thinking and doing and, in the process, move sustainability from concept to daily reality for an increasing number of citizens. Urban Green Lab is Team Lightning’s official Engage Green Workshop Series partner and workshop co-host. They have been instrumental in providing expertise and guidance on a range of sustainability topics, and play a key role in connecting Nashville residents with information on local sustainability issues.
