This is Meritan’s signature and only community awareness event in the Mid-South. Young or old will enjoy a 17-mile, non-competitive, police escorted, bike ride. The ride will tour along Memphis landmarks and experience the thrill of a night on the town. It’s like nothing else! Last year 2,000 attended the event and almost 1,600 riders rode the streets of Memphis…individuals, corporations, children and families!
Registration and The Lunar Festival begins at 8:00 p.m. Cyclists will start rolling at midnight, and a breakfast snack will be served at the finish line. During the festival bikers can listen to a live band, get a free bike check-up by local bike shops, along with a demonstration by local bikers who perform some amazing tricks on their bikes, and enjoy food and drink.
Support vehicles will be along the route to provide transportation back to the starting area for those who have mechanical difficulties or for those who don’t want to finish the 17-mile tour.
