Ride with the Party on Wheels as Meritan’s 20th annual Moonlight Classic Bike Tour and Tailgate takes to the streets of East Memphis and Midtown on August 24, 2019. This year’s ride is ALL ABOUT MEMPHIS!
Tailgating fun begins at 8 pm at the Richard & Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Park at Audubon Park on Perkins Extended. The pre-race party features local food, local beer, local prizes, and local entertainment all highlighted with “Bling Yourself,” “Bling Your Corner,” and “Bling Your Bike” contests. Again, this year there will be great prizes for all winners!
The Bike Tour begins at 10 pm and for the first time will encompass two routes—a 7-mile ride and a 19-mile ride—all under the light of the summer moon and the watchful eye of the Memphis Police Department. Both routes end at the place they started: the Richard & Annette Cancer Survivors Park.
The Bike Tour’s early-bird registration costs $40 per person and increases to $45 later. Go to Meritan.org and click on Bike Tour to register.
