Music City Rush, a Nashville bicycle messenger company, has closed up shop. In a July 27 post on the company’s Facebook page, the founder wrote,
Where do I start? For the past 5 years I’ve launched my entire being in to one thing. I wanted so badly to create a business that provided a good job for like minded individuals. I wanted to provide a service for like minded businesses. I wanted to provide a family for the growing community of bicycles in my city. In many ways, I achieved those things. I achieved those things with the help of so many incredible people that I met along the way. Friendships were made. Relationships were made. And incredible memories were made.
With all of that being said, it’s time for us to all move on. No matter the efforts, willingness or hopefulness of all of the co-owners, we have decided it is best to close the doors to Rush. I am forever indebted to all of the helping hands along the way. No effort has gone unnoticed. Thank you.
The company was the only bicycle-only courier service in Nashville.
