South Memphis Glide RideNovember 17, 10:30 am-12:00 pm
Bicycle through the South Memphis neighborhood on a free community ride. Join us for the South Memphis Glide Ride!
This bicycle ride, led by the Glide Ride Ambassadors, will take scenic views through South Memphis and consider how to improve bicycle facilities and connectivity within the South Memphis area.
Join us at 10:30 a.m. to get on your bike, air up the tires and meet all the friends. Rides roll out promptly at 10:45 a.m.
Meet us at South Memphis Farmers Market (1400 Mississippi Blvd, at South Parkway) and we’ll glide through the neighborhood.
For this ride, you should be able to ride for about an hour, at an easy pace. We like to chat while we ride! This ride is rain or shine!
Please NOTE: Children MUST be accompanied by an adult.
We will have a some adult sized bicycles available to borrow, on a first come, first served basis. You can also use your Explore Bike Share membership to get a bike.
Bring your bicycle in to Revolutions Bicycle CoOp (1000 S. Cooper) ahead of time for a tune-up, to make sure it’s ready to ride! Please remember that you ride at your own risk.
While we generally recommend the use of helmets, they are legally required only for persons aged 16 and under. And, ride participants are expected to follow all applicable traffic laws.
The Big Jump Project is a national initiative provided by a People for Bikes grant, designed to help 10 cities radically reimagine their bicycling infrastructure while, at the same time, helping to propel communities nationwide into a better future for bicycling. The goal is also to validate a core concept: that if a city does all the right things, more people will ride and the community will be a better place to live, work and play.
The Glide Ride Ambassadors are bicycle advocates who live and work, in the South Memphis neighborhood. The Ambassadors volunteered their time to learn how to advance their community through The Big Jump Project.
Revolutions Bicycle Cooperative, The Works, Inc. and City of Memphis Bike/Ped Memphis Program have partnered together to make The Glide Ride possible in Memphis, TN.
