I live a couple miles east of the university; every morning I descend on my bike the hill my neighborhood is perched on and take a greenway that runs alongside the Tennessee River. It comes out below the university, leaving a short hustle uphill to get on campus. All in all, a hard to beat commute. Though the up-hill journey coming back is less enjoyable.

The Tennessee River (well, the Tennessee Lake these days, to be more accurate)
Morning glories are everywhere and in multiple colors along the river.
