Revolutions will grow a diverse Community of Cyclists that love and depend on their bikes by providing affordable bicycles that fit properly and work well.
Revolutions Community Bicycle Shop is a meeting ground for a variety of people ranging from professional bicycle mechanics to individuals learning bike repair for the first time. Such diversity requires that our shop provide sanctuary from all forms of bigotry and discrimination.
We live according to First Congregational Church’s “Open and Affirming” covenant by affirming our Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual and Trans-gendered brothers and sisters.
We “Welcome the Stranger” into our bicycle shop by providing cycling services and materials to the indigent community of Memphis, welcoming these people into our community of cyclists.
Revolutions abides by First Congregational UCC’s “Just-Peace” covenant:
We bicycle to create a small ecological footprint. Many of us try to avoid the “conspicuous consumption” of petroleum by riding, as we recognize that the inevitable consequence of such consumption creates conflict and warfare with our brothers and sisters throughout the world.
Finally, Revolutions abides by the spirit of the “Loaves and Fishes”.
We recognize the abundance of cycling resources in Memphis and the need for the careful distribution of these bicycles parts throughout the community. To meet this need and minimize waste, Revolutions accepts donated bicycles and bicycle parts which we provide to our membership.
