More than 25,500 bike trips have been taken on Explore Bike Share (EBS) bikes since the city-wide system launched here nearly six months ago, according to new figures from the group.
EBS also shared heat maps (see below) to show where most of those rides were taken. Downtown is easily the top neighborhood for EBS rides. But riders also explored Midtown and West Memphis on many rides, according to the map.
“You can clearly see paths of travel between communities across the city and high usage within many neighborhoods, even along the Greenline into Shelby Farms and the Big River Trail in Arkansas,” Trey Moore, EBS executive director said in a statement. “Explore Bike Share is for transportation, recreation, and of course exploration, so it’s incredibly inspiring to see such robust interconnectivity.”
Here are the system’s top six most popular stations:
1. Big River Crossing
2. Overton Park
3. Beale St. Landing
4. Court Square
5. Loflin Yard
6. Crosstown Concourse
Altogether, the 25,522 rides taken on EBS bikes between May 23rd and November 28th have taken riders 81,445 miles and burned about 3.2 million calories, according to EBS.
EBS plans to expand to the University of Memphis campus and the University District next year. Continue Reading
In the past, home owners are restricted to some limited options when they are in search of the best alternatives for natural grass to be installed in their San Diego homes. Artificial grass and huge rock garden are the best options you can consider to be installed in your homes and office.
Some year's back just one variety of artificial grass is available which looks unreal. Things are getting better these days, there are quite pretty number of varieties available when it comes to installing artificial lawns with real and natural feel. This is motivating many people in San Diego to use artificial turf instead of real grass.
Artificial turf fields are on their way to Petaluma, CA. Three artificial turf fields are scheduled to be installed at a Petaluma park. Artificial turf fields will also be installed later at two high schools who are following suit.
Parents have expressed their concerns however concerning risk of bacterial infections, heat conduction, the effects of crumb rubber, and increased risk of physical injuries to players.
A high school in Keizer, OR, is beginning to raise money for a new sports field to be installed with synthetic turf. The high school, McNary High School, says if it raises $1 million, they'll be able to get rid of their irregular and inconvenient natural grass field which has patches of dead grass scattered across its face and replace it with synthetic turf, which will save the school district money and increase usability. The school hopes to start converting their current fields to synthetic turf this summer and to have it completed by the next school year.
