Weekend Wrap-Up

Hi everyone.  I’m going to keep it short today as I have quite a bit on my plate.  Here’s a few pages on facebook I discovered recently which made me happy.

By now you’ve heard of the young woman who was struck by a car as she was biking on Cooper Street this weekend.  I don’t have any information beyond what is in the linked article; if any of you have any information about her status, feel free to leave it in the comments.  Here’s hoping she has a speedy recovery and that the driver who hit her is brought to justice.

This guy is awesome.  I mean, he would complete pwn the next Tweed Ride.

We now have bike lanes on Chelsea Avenue!  I was going to ride them this weekend but was busy doing other things.  I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

Lastly, I missed this year’s Tour de Bird, mostly due to bad planning.  I did see a few of the riders as I was heading home from downtown.  It looked like a good crowd.  You can read more about it here.

I got a comment/question on my “About” page from a reader who wants to bike from Memphis to New Orleans (hell yeah!) and is looking for more information about how to do that.  (Scroll to the bottom to his his comment – his name is Ryan.)  I really don’t have any information about how to do that, as cool as it sounds – please help out a fellow cyclist in the comments.

Alright Memphis, time to earn some $$$.  Have a good week.
