Our Busy Schedule

Monday Night — Two Choices

On Monday, you can either do Demolition Night or the Neighborhood SLOW Ride and Kidical Mass. Both are fun.

Demolition Night helps us work through our donated bikes to find parts worth saving, and scrap headed for the scrap heap. Work on this night will also help us keep our stock of used parts sorted and available. This is a great night for new members to participate in because we’re just breaking down bikes, so you don’t have to worry about breaking something!

Neighborhood SLOW Ride and Kidical Mass is a slow and easy ride through our neighborhood. Ramble around with us as the sun goes down for some fresh air at the end of a hot day. This is a great ride for families. If your kid is riding on two wheels, without training wheels, they are welcome to ride their own bikes! Or maybe you just haven’t been on a bike in awhile. Rent one of ours, and get back to bicycling!

We’ll meet in front of the Revolutions Bike Gate, on Monday at 6:45. And if you’d like to try one of our Easy Rider Tri-Cycles, we have 10 of them! City bikes and trikes will be available to rent, for $5, plus tax.

Overhaul Night is Back

IMG_1814

Our second Overhaul class just ended and we want the students to get some more practice. So, Overhaul Night is back. This experienced night is for folks who have taken the Overhaul Class.

Under supervision, you will work on different types of brakes, bottom brackets, etc as you help us get bikes ready for folks to ride.

You didn’t take the Overhaul Class but you know what you’re doing around a bike? You are also invited!

Work on this night will help us overhaul some of our donations. We need more bike available for folks who want to ride!

Want to take the Overhaul Class?

The Fall class starts on Thursday, October 8. Read more and sign up here!

 

Bike Polo Tournament — Should you go?

Our friends from the Memphis Hardcourt Bike Polo are hosting a tournament on Aug 29 and 30. It will be a big gathering of bicycle people from all over the Southeast. They’re having a kick-off party, with a group ride, on Friday night (7:30 p.m. at the Cooper-Young Gazebo) and all are invited.

Their tournament will be held at the Glenview Park (1141 S. Barksdale). Does Glenview sound familiar? That’s because that is the same place we went last week, for the City of Memphis Bike and Walk Fest. It is a beautiful park, with paved paths for biking and walking, and lots of beautiful trees. It’s a great place to hang out. If you missed the Bike Rodeo, why not check out this neighborhood gem while also checking out some Bike Polo? I  made this map, for riding from Revolutions, if you’re not sure where Glenview is. I give two route choices, in case the train is blocking Cooper.

The Shop will be CLOSED during this tournament. But come out to Glenview Park and get your bike worked on there! And Hot Mess Burritos will arrive at 1:00, on Saturday, to serve lunch!

Tour De Coop, Register NOW!!!

Register this week, if you want to be sure to get this year’s awesome tee-shirt! $12 gets you the shirt and an super ride!

Rider leaders/chasers needed: I’m looking for folks to lead the long rides and the family short rides. If you’re interested, email me at infoATrevolutionsmemphisDOTcom. Volunteering comes with a free T-shirt!

Sweaty Fun

Yesterday’s Bike Rodeo was a sweaty success. We transported our course materials and booth, totally by bike:

IMG_1760 IMG_1771

And we had about 30 kids ride the course. Glenview is a beautiful park, and it has great trails to practice riding on. Here’s a map of two possible routes from Revolutions. We went south on Cooper to McLemore. But if the train had been sitting across Cooper, we would have taken Walker down to Payne’s BBQ. It is definitely worth checking out!

 

Women’s Bike Chat, TODAY, at 2:00

clothing-swap

We’re celebrating our first anniversary with a clothing swap party. Plan to bring 3-5 items of clean and gently used clothing, jewelry, shoes or bags.

Bike to Dinner–3 Angels on Broad

We had 32 people ride to dinner, last time. So, let’s go, again! This time, we’re headed to 3 AIMG_1499ngels, on Broad. You can see beautiful pictures of their food, and menus, on their website. Please note that 3 Angels is a bit pricier than our previous destinations. 

Unless it is raining, let’s plan to meet at Revolutions’ Bike Gate, on Cooper, at 6:30 p.m., and we’ll Bike to Dinner!

If you want to rent a bike from us, come a few minutes early. We’ll have our Dutchie 3-speeds available for $5, plus tax.

Oh, and remember, please wear a helmet for all Revolutions Bicycle CoOp sponsored rides!! And bring lights, because we’ll ride back after dark.

See the Facebook event, here, and let us know that you plan to join us.

Orange Mound Community Ride — An Update

IMG_1562

We had a great time riding with our friends in Orange Mound. Dwayne Jones led us on an excellent tour, of the neighborhood. We saw Melrose High School, and the football field, Dunbar Elementary, where at least two in the group attended as children, and Landmark Farmers Market, where they are growing organic produce and medicinal herbs. Everyone had such a good time, that we already set the date and made an event page for our next ride. We’ll ride again on Thursday, Sept. 3. So, mark your calendars and plan to join us, then.

Women’s Bike Chat Turns One!

On August 16, at 2:00 p.m., we’re celebrating one year of Women’s Bike Chat!

clothing-swap

Just for fun, we’re going to make this a Clothing (and accessory) Swap Party. Plan to bring 3-5 items of clean and gently used clothing, jewelry, shoes or bags. We’ll also need some handheld snacks (so we can munch and shop at the same time). And, bring your own tasty beverages (you choose whether these are adult or not!).

The Swap items DO NOT have to be lycra or spandex. Because haven’t we decided that all clothes are bicycle clothes?! I, personally, am always on the look out for a new pair of wedge sandals!

And, of course, bring your bike and helmet, because afterwards our neighborhood ride can serve as the fashion show of what we’ve traded! All the details are here.

Rides, Rentals and Demolition!

Demolition Night, Monday at 6:30
IMG_0858

Have you been to a Demolition Night, yet? We have several regulars who enjoy working through our donated bikes looking for parts worth saving. You don’t have to know if a part is worth saving or is headed to the scrap. Our Repair Shop Manager helps evaluate that. But work on this night helps us keep our stock of used parts sorted and available.

New members often enjoy participating in Demolition Night because we’re just breaking down bikes, so you don’t have to worry about breaking something! And, work on this night is worth $10 in Revolutions Bucks. Do you know about Revolutions Bucks? If you are thinking of getting a bike from us to overhaul yourself, you can use Revolutions Bucks towards that purchase! You can also use this coin to bring a friend to Open Shop. Maybe you know someone who wants to try out Revolutions but hasn’t joined, yet. Earn some Revolutions Bucks and then bring your friend as a guest to Open Shop, and show off how much fun you have with us!

We’re rolling around Cooper-Young, again, tomorrow night. We’ll meet at 6:45, but if you want to rent one of our bikes (for just $5), come a few minutes early. Wear a helmet and bring bike lights. And we’ll enjoy a bit of the evening, together.

Regions Bank, Now Nice to Bicycles!

The Regions bank branch at 2053 Union Ave previously had a policy that reserved the drive-through window for cars and trucks, only. However, after riding up to the window, twice, and speaking to the managers, Regions changed their policy! The branch at Union and Cooper is now ready to receive business on bicycles. We are still working on encouraging them to install a sturdy bike rack. But way to go Regions for changing your policy to become Nice to Bicycles!! Be sure to ride up and say thanks!
