The U of M Cycling Club

Hey everyone.  Today was an exciting day at Biking in Memphis; a record 70+ readers visited this blog, many I imagine for the first time.  To everyone I say: thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you soon.

In other news, please don’t forget that Mayor Wharton will soon make a decision about whether or not to install bike lanes on Madison Avenue.  While I very much want bike lanes on Madison – and every other street in Memphis – I also want to keep the tenor of the conversation very civil, especially from the pro-bike-lane camp (the anti-bike-lane contingent appears to have abandoned that strategy long ago, if they ever even adopted it).  So if you email the Mayor, please keep your comments very positive and supportive of him and his past efforts to support bike lanes in Memphis. Don’t bother mentioning the businesses that are opposed to bike lanes on Madison; the Mayor has heard enough from and about them.  It is high time for cycling-friendly citizens to have their voices heard.

Almost forgot

In my most recent post, about the bike-lane meeting, I forgot to mention that I had a pretty epic biking day that day.  I biked from home to school, then from campus out to Shelby Farms on the Greenline and back (another group bike ride with the UM Cycling Club), then from campus to Otherlands, then from Otherlands to the Snowden School for the meeting, then from Snowden home.  Here’s a screenshot of my day.

And here’s a link to an interactive map.

Pretty awesome, huh?  I biked for a total of 25.2 miles that day.  My average speed was a respectable 10.4 MPH, and my peak was 20.8 MPH.  A good chunk of the trip was on the Greenline, but most of those miles were commuter miles, which I love.
