Bike Lanes approved for Memphis

It looks like President Barack Obama's Stimulus package has trickled down to Memphis. The following routes have been approved for construction by the Memphis MPO.

Check out Wayfaring.com to see how the routes fit together on a map. First, locate Memphis. Then, search "Revolutions community bike shop." On the sidebar you will be able to locate "bike lanes," "sign shared roadways," etc.

It appears we're heading in the right direction.
