We have a local and national epidemic of obesity and all its health related issues. A major impediment to solutions is that most efforts are no fun. Biking is one great way to add fun to the better health efforts. Indoor exercise and diets are helpful but most people associate those efforts with pain and boredom. More safe bike trails in Memphis will go a long way toward expanding the biking experience.
This picture was probably taken in 1941. At the time I was in the 5th grade and Ms. Garrison was my teacher. She told us about her trip to Central America on a United Fruit ship. Getting on or off the ship a tarantula spider landed on her shoulder. A companion brushed it away. At 10 you would remember a story like that.Peter BallengerMemphis
