Memphis built its first traditional on-street bike lane in the fall of 2008. Just four years later, the city is finalizing plans to build and fund its first protected bike lanes along Tillman Street and Broad Avenue. This dramatic shift in the city’s focus was driven largely by the efforts of Memphians – business leaders and citizen advocates with the vision and courage to work together to build a better city, one street at a time.
