It is back - after a year off. Fundraising is tough. And it's hard to find sponsors. But it is worth it. What a fantastic event. Probably the last event of the year where everyone still has their summer sun, attitude, and groove.
Music - People - Bicycles - Smiling Faces
Early evening - Bike shops set up tents, volunteers, sponsors, and support staff start arriving.
By 10 pm the parking lot is ALIVE.
At the stroke of Midnight, they're off in waves.
Ride through the heart of Memphis on a perfect August evening. Music, night air, and people, people, people and more people. The Midnight Classic Bike Tour offers a healthy night out with cyclist of all levels. They come out in droves. As teams, families, friends, unique individuals who are never alone in our crowd. A one night event where we are all connected in the ride, the experience, and familiarity.
Spend an evening cycling with some of Memphis' free spirits, the Midtown crowd, some of the coolest people we know and truly the soul of our city. And the lost souls of the suburbs make their way to join us. We have plenty of young college students, artists, athletes, professionals, doctors, lawyers, fry cooks, firemen, and families from infants to 80 year olds.
The event is a blast.
All proceeds go to Meritan, one of the best charities around. [501(c)3 in Memphis]
