For release: October 31, 2012
For press information, contact Jacqueline De Fouw, 901-678-4745

Bicycle riders will be able to join a Tiger “tour” to the University of Memphis football game against Tulane University on Nov. 10.

In the “Tour de Tigre,” bikers will make the 2.7-mile trek from the U of M to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium for the 6 p.m. game.

Riders will meet at 4:30 p.m. in the Southern Avenue parking lot by the Student Recreation Center for a warm-up. They will leave at 5 p.m. with a police escort down Southern to Hollywood and the stadium. A bide rack will be provided outside Gate 1; security personnel will be on hand to watch the bikes. Athletics will give any faculty or staff bikers and their family members tickets for admission to the game. Riders will assemble on the football field with Tiger mascot Pouncer for recognition at halftime.

After the game, riders will leave in a group from Gate 1 with a police escort back to the U of M. The U of M Sustainability Committee will provide hot chocolate and treats at the Recreation Center for a post-game warm-up party.

Riders must provide their own bicycle and are required to wear a helmet and have a working light on the front of the bike, flasher on the back, working brakes, and a bike lock.

The event is sponsored by Memphis Healthy U, Athletics, Tiger Blue Goes Green, and the Sustainability Committee.

For more information, or to register for the ride, contact Jacqueline De Fouw at or 901-678-4745.
