Hey! We’re on YouTube! Here’s a helpful video explaining how to use an Outdoor Bicycle Repair Stand. We installed one on May 22, 2015 at Poplar and Cleveland, as a part of Church Health Center’s Operation Crosstown improvements.
Easy Riders Tri-Cycles
Revolutions, in partnership with the City of Memphis Division of Parks and Neighborhoods, will lead a group ride for senior citizen using ten new tri-cycles. At the unveiling, we asked several friends to try out and demonstrate these three-wheeled rides. And everybody loved them!! I hear from a lot of seniors a concern about the balance it takes to stop and start a bike. Tri-Cycles seem to give an almost magical confidence since they’re stable at a stop. The aim of this program is to give seniors from around Memphis an easy, fun way to get some exercise, while also connecting with the community. We’re pleased to work with Parks and Neighborhoods on this new project. And, if you know a group of seniors who would like to ride, just email Sylvia!
And, check out this video of Mayor A.C. Wharton, DA General Amy Weirich and Parks and Neighborhoods Director Janet Hooks enjoying the ride!
