My people. It’s been a while since I posted an end-of-the-week wrap-up. But, since I have a few minutes tonight, and a back-log of articles to share, I think it’s time.
First, what an awesome and amazing article appeared in today’s Commercial Appeal about biking in Memphis. As I noted on my blog’s Facebook page, I couldn’t have said it better myself. In fact, I really need to interview this guy for my blog.
Second, I hope that everyone who participated in last night’s Cycle Memphis ride had a great time. I had planned to go, but spent the day moving boxes of books and other crap from one office to another – it’s a long story – so by last night, I was pretty shagged out. It looks like the turn-out was really good. I hope to make September’s ride. The Cycle Memphis guys always put on a good show. Hmmm … maybe I should interview them for my blog as well.
Also, from Cort at Fix Memphis, there is a bike polo tournament happening soon. The game goes down on September 29 at Tiger Lane. It’s also a benefit for St. Jude’s; always a good cause. Visit memphisbikepolo.com for more information and to register.
Next, James Roberts posted a question about local bike courier services on the About page of my blog. I didn’t have anything to tell him, but if any of you have information about any local bike messenger services, please share it in the comments.
Do I have a GPS unit on my bike? No, unless you count my iPhone. Do I now want a Japanese GPS unit on my bike? Oh hell yes.
A bit late, but yikes … be careful out there, Murfreesboro.
If you needed a reminder about all the ways in which biking is awesome, and a key part of our cities’ futures, here you go.
And that’s all for now. As always, thanks for reading, and I hope to see you all soon, biking in Memphis.
P.S. I don’t have anyone lined up for the Cyclist of the Month profiles in the next few months, so shoot me a comment if you are interested.
