We are pleased to announce that we have just finished updating our maps indicating the presence of existing bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Memphis. These maps, both the online interactive feature as well as the printable PDF’s, have been revised to reflect new facilities built since Jan. 1 as well as the further documentation of pre-existing facilities such as walking paths and bicycle racks.
Total: 149 Miles Bike/Ped Facilities
37 miles of Bike Lanes
69 miles of Shared Lanes
13 miles of Shared Use Paths
30 miles of Walking Paths
Since January, Memphis has increased its total amount of bicycle facilities by 10%, totaling 119 miles. Some of the key new routes are listed below. Be sure to plot some new routes so you can explore these brand new facilities (and smooth asphalt).

Baskin St: Whitney to Alta Vista – Bike Lane
Delano Ave: Alta Vista to Overton Crossing – Signed Shared Roadway
James Rd: Overton Crossing to McLean – Bike Lane

Walking Paths: The map now indicates the location of 30 miles of walking paths currently present in City of Memphis parks (shown in yellow). We’re continuing to map existing facilities in our spare time (what little exists) and plan to tackle pedestrian overpasses/underpasses in the next half of this year.
Bike Racks: We’ve uploaded our first cut at mapping all the bike racks in the city. This feature allows users to locate bicycle parking near their destination. Click on the dots and you’ll get pertinent information about the bike parking including the address, type of rack, and a photo for reference.
