Ride Slow And Find Your Flow With Freewheel’s Memphis Bike Tours

Posted by Holly Whitfield | October 2nd 2017 933 0

One of the best ways to see the city – any city, but certainly Memphis – is by bike. If you want to join a weekly group of like-minded, bike-riding Memphis lovers, you’re in luck. The Freewheel community bicycling program is back for the fall with weekly rides October 11 through November 8, 2017.

Freewheel is free, open to everyone, and run by the Memphis Medical District Collaborative (MMDC) + the Downtown Memphis Commission. Each 45 minute ride departs at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays from the shipping container at 603 Monroe Avenue across the street from High Cotton Brewing/The Edge, in the parking lot next to the bar formerly known as Kudzu’s.
• Wednesday, October 11 – Memphis Medical District
• Wednesday, October 18 – Martyrs Park
• Wednesday, October 25 – Elmwood Cemetery
• Wednesday, November 1 – Vance, Peabody & Annesdale
• Wednesday, November 8 – Downtown Memphis
• Wednesday, November 15 – Uptown
All ages and abilities are invited. You can bring your own bike or borrow one from the MMDC. If you want to borrow a bike, it’s first-come, first-served and you must be there by 5:30 p.m. to get fitted. The MMDC fleet is maintained by The Carpenter Street Bike Shop, which is awesome.

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.

    I love bike tours! I would love to be able to experience Memphis in this way. Partaking in one of these tours sounds like a great way to have fun and experience the city all at the same time! The bike tours I usually go on are ones in Sonoma / Napa County via http://getawayadventures.com but I am more than willing to branch out! I’ll check this out the next time i’m in memphis!
