Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Hampline Groundbreaking Recap

Today we added to the story of Memphis being a major bike city. Ground was broken at noon for the two-mile paved trail that will connect the western end of Shelby Farms Greenline to Overton Park by way of the Hampline. Mayor AC Wharton and several other guests were present for this event.
