Memphis' Big Jump: South Main to Soulsville

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Memphis is one of 10 cities chosen to participate in PeopleForBikes’s new Big Jump Project, which aims to double or triple bike ridership in specific neighborhoods over the course of just three years. This tour will examine Memphis’ Big Jump target area, which spans from the southern part of downtown over to the Soulsville USA neighborhood, the birthplace of American Soul Music and Stax Records. Participants will learn about past transportation infrastructure and policy decisions that disconnected and contributed to decline in parts of the target area and about new efforts to overcome those challenges using community assets. Participants will visit with a variety of community leaders who are driving revitalization through creative approaches -- tackling issues of food insecurity, promoting youth development, and using music and art to connect neighbors and animate spaces.
