Howdy fellow cyclists and lovers of all thing pedaled. Memphis Critical Mass is back. I have been in hiatus, trying to keep my job and some remnant of my lifestyle throughout these uncertain and turbulent times as I know many of you are doing the same. These days, when frugality is most definitely king, the bicycle is now, more than ever, the answer to many of our woes. Bicycles are the most cost and energy efficient transportation/recreation machines in the world created and powered by human beings. Particularly at a time when our economy is in crisis and we have a huge addiction and perceived need for foreign produced oil. We are now at the cusp of needed change and innovation to reduce our collective carbon footprints and keep our hard earned money here in the United States where it belongs. We have a need to embrace preventive medicine through exercise, to keep our bodies moving, our hearts healthy, and our waistlines in check. The bicycle is the vehicle for change and the solution to our problems. Celebrate the bicycle! The next Memphis Critical Mass is April 24th at 6:00 pm. Stay tuned for location and details. Pedal On!
