Announced alongside the 16th Annual Indie Memphis Film Festival line-up at Craig Brewer’s Peep Show on October 3, the 16th Annual Indie Memphis Film Festival will feature an opportunity for attendees to enjoy the festival and the surrounding community in a new way. IndieBikes was announced alongside the festival line-up at Craig Brewer’s Peep Show on October 3.
Co-sponsored by Revolutions Memphis and organized by volunteers, IndieBikes is a grassroots, Memphis-style bike share concept that loans free bicycles to festival participants who wish to travel between film venues and experience Memphis without their cars. Participants may “check out” loaner bikes for up to three hours at a time and will be given maps of the surrounding neighborhoods highlighting restaurants, bike lanes and trails, parks and other amenities.
The bike share bikes were built by volunteers from Revolutions Memphis using donated and reclaimed parts. After IndieMemphis, they will be donated to individuals through the Revolutions Annual Holiday Recycled Bicycle Giveaway. They will be temporary branded as IndieBikes with artwork by Memphis College of Art students.
The Peddler Bike Shop will offer longer-term rental bikes for those who wish to keep a bike for the duration of the festival. Both IndieBikes and Peddler Bike Shop bikes may be conveniently accessed from the Memphian Room at Circuit Playhouse, 51 S. Cooper.
