Meritan Kicks Off 17th Annual Midnight Classic Bike Tour

Meritan, Inc., will be kicking off its signature fundraiser, the Meritan Midnight Classic Bike Tour, on August 6 at Tiger Lane. The event begins at 10pm with a Lunar Festival—an all-ages event with games, Bling Your Bike and Bling Yourself contests, food, and music from Jamie Baker and the VIPs. The Bike Tour rolls in waves from Tiger Lane at midnight. Riders trek across 15 miles of Midtown and University of Memphis streets. There’s no other ride like this!

Early bird registration is already open. Adults tickets are $40. College students, military (with ID), fire and police personnel, and children under 18 are only $25. For more information, go to Meritan’s website at http://www.meritan.org. 100% of proceeds from the Bike Tour go toward Meritan’s programs and services.
