Cycling team eyes city; ride scheduled for this weekend
Riders with Collierville and Germantown cycling clubs plan to tour Holly Springs May 19, with eyes on setting up a destination for weekends and summer evenings, according to Pepper Crutcher, a member of the Pearl Probike Cycling Team.
Crutcher, a 1975 Marshall Academy graduate who lives in Madison, said the purpose of the visit Saturday is to test the route he has selected.
“I have driven it several times, but there are things you can only test by riding it with others,” he said. “They include how drivers react to cyclists, which dogs will chase and where and how.”
Crutcher said teams also need places to change clothing, use restrooms, fill water bottles and buy snacks. A group of 10 cyclists are expected to make test ride through Holly Springs.
Crutcher practices law with Balch & Bingham.
