A Quick Break

Shop Closed, this week

September is going to be very busy. So, we are taking a quick break before it all gets started. The Shop will be closed from Sunday, Sept 6 through Monday, Sept. 14. However, we will ride for the Neighborhood SLOW ride, on Monday evening, the 14th. 

Last week’s Orange Mound ride

We had another great ride through Orange Mound, last week.

This ride works in several ways. We, as the riders, get a chance to know each other. And we also get to greet, wave and yell hello to Orange Mound neighbors, as we roll past. We frequently hear from those sitting on porches that they want to ride, too. Bicycling as a group is fun. And it’s a great way to show off that they are lots of different folks who ride.

Netherlands preparation

On Monday, I got to ride through Overton Park, Broad Ave and Cooper-Young with our Dutch Cycling Embassy advisor Tonny Bosch. He was here, in Memphis, to see our city. And he will meet with our group, while we are in the Netherlands. It was inspiring to talk with him. He told me about cycling projects he worked on in Kampala, Uganda; Austin, TX and San Francisco, CA.

I’ve been watching all these great videos about the amazing cycling infrastructure in the Netherlands. Tonny explained that they’ve been working on that great cycling infrastructure, for forty years. I guess this was inspiring, in that it says we shouldn’t get discouraged if our efforts take a while. On the other hand, I want more and better bicycling in Memphis, NOW.

I look forward to the ways we’ll ride bikes, this week. And I’m sure I’ll be bursting with ideas, when we get back!
