Train station.

Bicycle Arch

This is a great spot! There is a small but really nice train museum here, and the start of a 4+ mile trail, and a food truck find!

The Arch is an impressive attraction. Also check out the amazing neon sign on top of the building across the street.

The Spokes Sculpture.

Bicycle Arch

The Spokes Sculpture is a large steel arch with welded funky bicycles (including a high-wheeled penny farthing and a five-seater) and small bike-part sculptures (Check out the pair of sneakers and the weather vane). Spokes is the first public art in Cookeville made by local artists, using recycled bicycles and bike parts from members of the local community. It marks the entrance to the bike path between Cookeville and neighboring Algood.

We'd like to have met the eccentric 19th century citizen who rode around Cookeville, Tennessee, on a penny farthing.
