The route begins at Patrick Henry High School's artistic bus shelter, continues through the Grandin Village neighborhood, then travels along the Roanoke River Greenway towards downtown. Connecting with the Mill Mountain Greenway at Williamson Road, it then follows the greenway into downtown Proper. The bulk of the pieces you'll explore are in the downtown core. From there, the route leads into a portion of the Old Southwest neighborhood, where it will loop back into the mail route at Wasena Park.

The directions below assume you are travelling to and from Patrick Henry High school, though you may start the route at whatever point you choose. Note: the address listed here is for the Roanoke Valley Visitor Center.

This route was developed in partnership with the Roanoke Arts Commission to celebrate the unveiling of In a Tangle, the sculptural bike rack installed in the Grandin Village on July 1, 2011. It was updated in 2013 with the unveiling of Whimcyle, a mural by the Roanoke Art Mural Project and local artist Toobz.
