Memphis Bike Tour & Beale Street Bike Night – 6PM to 8PM
Join Memphis Toursim, Freewheel and Explore Bike Share for a Slow Ride around downtown landmarks and learn something about Memphis and our industry you might not know from local tour operators and Memphis Tourism staff. Kick things off at Handy Park where you can borrow a bike while supplies last. Then journey to the Victorian Village, Memphis Convention Center, Martyrs Park, South Main/National Civil Rights Museum, Clayborn Temple/I AM A MAN Plaza and then back to Handy Park. After the ride join your fellow riders and cool down at Tin Roof on Beale. Then explore Beale Street as hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts descend on the most iconic street in America. (Note: Bicycles are not allowed on Beale Street.) During Beale Street bike night, it is all about bragging rights and strutting your stuff with amazing motorcycles of every shape, size, brand and year.
