You Can Try Out Memphis Bike Share This Week!
I tend to try to keep exclamation points out of my headlines (I had a writing teacher who said that writers are allowed to use only three “!” in their whole lives) but I’m breaking the rules because I am that excited about the possibility of Memphis getting a bike share program.
This week, you have a chance to help us get one step closer to making Memphis Bike Share real. You can:
1. Attend an Explore Bike Share demo this week (schedule and map below)
2. Share your experience on social media using #
Here’s the schedule of the demos:
Wednesday, July 27
11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Overton Square
4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Intersection of Union Avenue & Main Street
Thursday, July 28
9 a.m. – 1 p.m. South Memphis Farmers Market
6 p.m. – 9 p.m. Levitt Shell
Friday, July 29
11 a.m. – 2 p.m. FedEx Forum (for Food Truck Friday)
If you attend, you’ll be able to try out one of the bikes and see what a bike share station would be like. If you post a photo on social media from a demo and use #SeeMoreInMemphis, you will be entered to win an annual membership to the bike share program (they’re picking one person a day July 27-29, 2016).
Hopefully, these demos will allow Memphians to see for themselves how great a bike share program would be for residents and visitors, and – very importantly – help the program attract more sponsors so it can get rolling early next year.
See y’all at the demos!
