#10 Overton Park Road, Memphis

Here's the most remarkable thing about this protected bike lane, Memphis's first: In 2010, this city didn't have a single bike lane of any kind. In the three years that followed, this storied city on the Mississippi has made a new name for itself by making advanced bike lanes like this one standard on all new repaving projects of its majestically wide thoroughfares. The first great song about biking in Memphis? Only a matter of time.
