A partnership between the Memphis Medical District Collaborative and Downtown Memphis Commission, Freewheel is a free, fun, social opportunity to better understand a neighborhood’s history and assets by bike. “Slow rides” are group bicycle rides with a focus on community and neighborhoods. Freewheel is for everyone; all ages, all skill levels and every type of bike is welcome.
