Why Being Car-Free is Important to You: The Car Free Challenge this month is something I want to undertake in order to help educate others about the transportation options we have on the roads of Memphis.  As someone who rides a bike frequently in the city and occasionally to work, I hope to demonstrate how much easier and more convenient travel by bike has gotten in Memphis and show others what you need in order to commit to a bike commute.  I also hope to explore our transit system.   I’ve had no experience with MATA since I was much younger and want to share my experience with others who may not have considered this an option in the past.
