Memphis to install 15 miles of bike lanes

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Mayor A C Wharton revealed major new plans for 15 miles of protected bike lanes throughout the city.

One-third of Memphians say they don't ride their bikes because they don't feel safe on Memphis roads, Wharton said.

Memphis was chosen as a Green Lane City and over the next two years the city will install at least 15 miles of protected bike lanes.

Memphis is also the site for the 2013 Tennessee Bike Summit, which runs May 22-24.
