Memphis Cycle Track

By now you've heard the announcement that Memphis was selected as one of six cities to receive technical assistance from Bikes Belong in developing a cycle track. A cycle track is a kind of hybrid bike path. Imagine the Shelby Farms Greenline if it ran parallel to a road, separated by a curb or other partition.

What really helped Memphis get selected is that we already have some working plans for a cycle track: the Overton-Broad Connector. Livable Memphis has done an incredible job giving the Connector project legs to stand on and I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with that will make biking safer for Memphis. Here's a nice video that gives a few more details:
