Happy National Bike Day!


National Bicycle Day is here! April 19 marks National Bicycle Day! To celebrate, ride the day away at Shelby Farms Park or on Shelby Farms Greenlnie! (At the Park, everyday is Bicycle Day, but we especially encourage you to come out and enjoy a ride on April 19!) 

With more than 40 miles of both paved and unpaved trails, Shelby Farms Park is the place for you, whether you are just biking for fun or mean serious business. 

The Greenline is a rails to trails project that now has 10.65 miles of paved trails that connect pedestrians and cyclists from Midtown all the way to Cordova. With 15 different access points, you’re never too far from the trails, so why not use them! 

Don’t have a bike? You can rent one from us! We have two convenient locations: The Hyde Lake Wheel House at 6903 Great View Drive North or The Greenline Wheel House at 6489 Mullins Station Road. Rentals are available for either 2 or 4 hour rental blocks. We have mountain bikes, hybrid, cruiser, trail, tandem, and kid bikes ready and at your service. 

Please remember that renters must provide a valid driver's license or government issued ID, but riders can be any age. We provide a helmet with each rental, and anyone ages 16 and under must wear their helmet while riding. Safety first! 

We know that sometimes things don’t always go as planned, so we have four free bike repair stations located along the trails for your convenience, just in case something were to get out of gear! Locations include the 0.0 mile marker of Shelby Farms Greenline, Tour de Wolf Trailhead, Wolf River Pedestrian Bridge, and Germantown Trailhead. 

Are you more of an extreme biker? We’ve got the place to be for you too. Shelby Farms Park BMX is located across the street from Hyde Lake. The track has recently been completely renovated and is ready to see what you’ve got! With novice, intermediate, and expert levels, there is competition to be had for all levels of BMX riders. 

Come with a friend, a date, your kids, or on your own -there are plenty of bikes for everyone, so don’t miss out!
