Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 19th 2017 8506 0

Want to explore Memphis by bike? Looking for a group to ride with, or a way to ease into street riding (since Memphis is getting more bike-friendly by the day)? You’ll want to connect with Freewheel bike group for their Spring Slow Rides, which kicks off on April 19.

The Memphis Medical District Collaborative (MMDC) organizes these rides every Wednesday this spring. You can bring your own bike (and helmet) or borrow one from Freewheel. It’s totally free and all ages and abilities are welcome.

If you want to reserve a bike to borrow, follow the link on each Freewheel Facebook event. You can find all of those here.

All the rides start at 6 p.m. and last about 45 minutes. Meet up in the old Kudzu’s parking lot aka across the street from High Cotton at 603 Monroe. Feel free to arrive a few minutes early or stay late to grab a beer from High Cotton.  There are six different rides scheduled for this spring.

Here’s the schedule:

Wednesday, April 19, 6 p.m.Riverfront & Martyrs Park

Wednesday, April 26, 6 p.m.Uptown

Wednesday, May 3, 6 p.m.Vance, Peabody & Annesdale

Wednesday, May 10, 6 p.m.Medical District

Wednesday, May 17, 6 p.m. Clayborn Temple & Downtown

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
