You: female, blond hair, mid-twenties, biking north on Cooper around 4:30 PM on Saturday, 25 June. Â You had an awesome cargo trailer (I think it was yellow), which tells me you are a serious bike commuter.
Me: fellow cyclist, blogger, die-hard commuter, ISO people to interview for my blog.
Sound familiar? Â Leave a comment or email me at doug (at) bikinginmemphis.com.
I’m looking for the guy who passed me on Southern yesterday afternoon, late in the afternoon, just past Highland. Â To the guy: You were riding a black and white mountain bike – I couldn’t get a look at the make or model – wearing white plaid shorts, a dark t-shirt, and a white back-pack. Â You complimented me on my panniers as you passed and I said thanks. Â Then you sped off, leaving me in the dust. Â (Apparently I need to work on my cadence.)
Anyway, the reason I want to talk to you – and lots of other commuter cyclists in Memphis – is that in July I’m starting a new feature on my blog. Â Once a month or so I plan to interview a fellow bike commuter in Memphis about what it’s like to be a bike commuter in Memphis. Â I’m interested in talking to people of all kinds, new cyclists and experienced ones, in-town and suburban, old and young … you get the idea.
So, if you’re interested in being interviewed, leave me a message in the comments. Â I already have my July interviewee lined up, but after that I am wide open.
