Kicking off our new theme - Beyond Bikes - are father/daughter duo, Lyle and Allison Udell, participants in the Memphis-based Urban Bicycle Food Ministries (UBFM). Each week, dozens of people in Memphis mount up on their bikes and hand-deliver around 300 burritos and 100 hotdogs to people experiencing homelessness. Lyle and Allison began riding with UBFM and distributing food about three years ago, and now have participated in more than 160 rides providing assistance and friendship to those in need. Lyle is now the Executive Director of UBFM and talks about his changing perspectives on homelessness and the need for communities to do more across the country for those in need.
