Revolutions Bicycle Co-Op

Jan.22: Bike to Businesses!

Where to Ride, Where to Park?!

Have you biked the Cleveland Ave bike lane? I love it with it’s green paint at intersections and it’s safe and easy travel along Cleveland. And now, it is even separated in some places. Unfortunately, the signs haven’t been posted, yet, but the City is working on it. It is confusing to figure out where to park, and folks are having trouble. This is causing some negative feelings at at least one business, and we’ve been asked to help. I think we can help with some education and encouragement.

If you are looking for a good place to eat, why not try one of the delicious stops along Cleveland? Peggy’s Famous Healthy Home Cooking is in a particularly confusing spot, along the bike lane because cars on the west side of the street (beside Central High School’s stadium) are actually supposed to park to the left of the bike lane. Just a couple of weeks ago, the city installed delineator posts, but car drivers are still confused. So we’re suggesting that you ride your bicycle to Peggy’s. While your there enjoying their food, you could mention how great it is that they are located on this great new bike lane. You know, just share a little about why you love businesses that are easy to get to by bike!

Another favorite restaurant of mine is Phoung Long, located very near the Crosstown Building. They are very friendly towards bicycles, but they don’t have a bike rack. Won’t you help encourage them, too?!

And of course, if you need any air in your tires, or to make a quick fix on your bike, you can stop at the Outdoor Repair Station located at the NE corner of Poplar and Cleveland, beside the bus stop. Revolutions helped the Church Health Center install that station almost 2 years ago!

Fix a Flat Class: Monday

Have you been wanting to learn to fix a flat tire? Your next chance is here, tomorrow night! Plan to join us on Monday, January 23. Read more and sign up, here.

 

Some Rides Get Cancelled

Our Beers and Gears ride, scheduled for last Thursday night, was cancelled due to rain. We scheduled a bunch of rides, this winter, just in case the weather is decent. But please remember to check out our Facebook event page for weather updates. Or, just call the Shop, at (901)726-6409! We know we’re not made of sugar, but we still don’t like to host group rides in the rain!

 

Bike to Dinner: Bahn Thai

We’ll try, again, this Thursday for a group ride. We’re riding to Bahn Thai. Meet at Revolutions at 6:30 p.m. You should be about to ride for about 35 minutes, each way. On the way, we’re going to roll by the Brooks Museum exhibit “Intrude.” We won’t plan to stop but the bunnies are supposed to look great at night. So, we’ll plan to ride through the park, on the way to dinner.

We have bikes to rent, if you need one: City Bikes, Family Cargo Bikes and trail-a-bikes that we can help you attach to your bicycle, so a kid can help you pedal.

Rides meet at Revolutions, on the Cooper-side of First Congo, in front of our gate with bike art above it. We’ll meet at 6:30 and roll out by 6:45, at the latest. If you are renting bicycles, please come at 6:15.

All rides are weather dependent (we will postpone, if it looks like rain). And we require helmets on all Revolutions sponsored rides. Bring your bike in to Revolutions ahead of time for a tune-up, to make sure it’s ready to ride! Please bring a locks, if you can. We take a pretty easy pace. Please remember that you ride at your own risk.

Don’t let not having a bike keep you from riding with us. We have bikes for sale, in our Shop. And we also rent adult bikes, kid’s trail-a-bikes for and family cargo bikes for $5-10 plus tax, on the day of a group ride.

Women’s Bike Chat: TODAY

I thought we’d be talking about cold-weather riding, this month. But this week, I rode in short sleeves and light sweaters, again! Join us, anyway, to talk about Bike-related goals/hopes for the new year and how this group might support them. We can also discuss tips for cold-weather riding, because it will come back someday, right?! Dawn Vinson is our guest discussion leader. And if it’s not pouring, we’ll take a neighborhood ride, afterwards. Hope you can join us! 2:00 p.m. at Revolutions.

 

King Day at the National Civil Rights Museum

Tomorrow is a great day to visit the National Civil Rights Museum. You will find us in the Health and Wellness Pavillion. Plus there will be entertainment, kids activities, food trucks and more! Oh, and Bike Walk Memphis is providing Bike Valet. Park your bike with them and get $2 off the $5 Museum admission. So ride your bike, park up front and save money!

Are you feeling nervous, anxious or excited about this week’s inauguration? Whatever you are feeling, you know that a bicycle ride and a beer will be good! Join us, on inauguration eve, Thursday at 7:00, to check out Ghost River’s new taproom. From the pictures, it is beautiful!!

This is one of our longer rides. Plan to ride about 55 minutes each way, at a pace slow enough to chat. And you can rent a bicycle, if you need one. Rides meet at Revolutions, on the Cooper-side of First Congo, in front of our gate with bike art above it. If you are renting bicycles, please come at 6:45. Otherwise, meet at 7:00.

If you’ll be hungry, Nomadic Feast will be on site, at Ghost River. Please note that it’s mostly meat! Read all the nitty gritty here.

Help Us Count?

On Monday, the Shop will be closed for an Inventory Count. If you can help, just show up at our regular Shop hours (6:30 to 9:00) and we’ll put you to work!

Winter Riding with Revolutions

You may have noticed that our calendar has several group rides scheduled over the next three months. We figure, even on a Snow Day, Memphis doesn’t look like this:

15823390_10154766534756605_3657961394633709263_n

But be sure to check each ride’s Facebook posting for weather updates. If it goes too miserable, we’ll cancel. But if it’s pretty…we’ll ride!

Our very next ride is Bike to Brunch and we’re headed to Loflin Yard. This one meets on Saturday, at the Shop at 10 a.m. and more details here.

Overhaul Class: 2 Spots Left!

Our Bicycle Overhaul for the Home Mechanic class starts Tuesday, Jan 17. There are just two spots left! This is a great chance to work on a bicycle that you already own, or get one of ours to fix up. Read more and sign up here!

Have You Heard About Our Overhaul Class?

This is our premier seven-week course that gives students the skills necessary to work on all the basic systems of the bicycle. Classes run 3 hours long. Registration is required and class size is limited to ten students.

Because students are encouraged to practice their newly learned skills in the shop by working on their own bike during Open Shop hours, we require membership for this class. But you can join Revolutions, when you sign up for class! Read more and sign up, here.

Basic Bike Assessment: Tomorrow!

Our Basic Bike Assessment class is coming up, tomorrow, Monday, Dec 19 at 6:30. This is a great class for new members. You will have the chance to look over your whole bike and make a list of what you could work on, during our Open Shop hours. Join us for an orientation to the workshop and a chance to check out your bicycle. Read more and sign up here.

Women’s Bike Chat 3rd Annual Hot Chocolate Ride

If it’s not raining, let’s chat on the road! The chilly weather makes a perfect time to ride to someplace warm and enjoy a hot chocolate, or other tasty beverage.

This ride is women-only. Guys, we’ll catch you on the next one.

The weather forecast does not look great. So, watch here for updates. If it’s just cold, we’ll bundle up and ride. If it’s rainy and nasty, though, we will cancel.

We require helmets on all Revolutions sponsored rides. We take a pretty easy pace. Please remember that you ride at your own risk.

Don’t let not having a bike keep you from riding with us. We have bikes for sale, in our Shop. And we also rent adult bikes $5 plus tax, on the day of a group ride.

Bike Walk Memphis Gathering: Loflin Yard

Join Bike Walk Memphis on Monday to learn about statewide plans for the Tennessee legislative session. Gather with others from the Memphis region to learn how to join the statewide movement for better bicycling and walking in Tennessee!

The upcoming Tennessee legislative session begins January 10, 2017. But bills are being filed and drafted, now. Your voice can have an impact on this process, and our voices will be loudest together. Learn more on Monday, Dec 19, 5:30 to 7:00 at Loflin Yard. More details here. 

Shop Closures for the Holidays

The Volunteers and Staff of Revolutions want to send out a big thank you for another great year. We tried out new classes and new ride destinations, and we made lots of new friends who like bicycles, too!

Revolutions will take a break for the Christmas/New Year’s week. We’ll be closed from Sunday, December 25th through Tuesday, January 3rd.  We look forward to seeing you in 2017!

Have you Thanked the City?

The team at Innovate Memphis, and specifically its Commute Options program, shared a thankful message for bike lanes in Memphis from local residents. Check out the video to see and hear Memphians giving thanks for improved bicycling conditions.

Why not take a moment, yourself, to thank Mayor Strickland?

College Students: Internship Opportunity!

The National Association of Railroad Passengers is launching year two of their Summer by Rail program. They are looking for a smart, dedicated young person to spend a month riding, biking, and hiking across a connected America!

During their first Summer by Rail, they sent Elena, a George Washington University student, on a month-long train trip across 15 states and 20 cities. She explored the connections between rail and bikes, ferries, and transit along the way. On her journey across America’s transportation network, she met with mayors and transportation officials, reporters, local cyclists and advocacy groups, and hundreds of fellow travelers.

NARP will be relaunching the Summer by Rail program for Summer 2017—and they want smart, dedicated college students to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Dec 11: It’s Cold!

Did you Bike to Lunch?

We had a great time, yesterday, on a cold sunny morning ride. First we stopped by Elmwood Cemetery for a brief walking tour with McCrosky Volunteer Photographer in Residence for 2016 Matt Matthews. You can see some of Matt’s photos here and read a theological-artistic reflection on his year at Elmwood here.

IMG_5992.JPG

After our tour, we headed to the Four Way Soul Food Restaurant. If you haven’t been here, you should go! Their food is delicious and they had a gate in the back that was very easy to lock up to. And, for all you vegetarian’s, they don’t put any meat in their vegetable dishes! Thanks Patrice and your great staff for a great meal.

3rd Time’s the Charm?

Beers and Gears: Memphis Made

This month’s Beers and Gears is headed to Memphis Made Brewing Company. There’s usually a food truck, and kids are welcome. Check here for weather updates.

Memphis Made is in our neighborhood. So, we’ll take a 35 minute, or so, neighborhood ride, on the way. We take a pace slow enough to chat. We hope you’ll join us for this fun and tasty ride!

PLEASE NOTE: Because the Shop is not open on Friday, we will NOT be renting bicycles for this ride. 

Women’s Bike Chat 3rd Annual Hot Chocolate Ride

Won’t you join us for this fun ride?! Instead of chatting at the Shop, for this month’s Women’s Bike Chat, we’ll chat while we ride. We like to find a place to have hot chocolate…or other tasty beverages!

This ride is women-only. Guys, we’ll catch you on the next one.

The weather forecast does not look great. So, watch here for updates. If it’s just cold, we’ll bundle up and ride. If it’s rainy and nasty, though, we will cancel.

How to Ride in the Street: March 26

We know that lots of Memphians would like to ride their bicycles more often. It’s a great way to go the farmers’ market, park or grocery store. But it can be really intimidating to get on the street with all the cars. What should you do if the bike lane disappears? Where should you ride if there isn’t any bike lane? What’s the best way to turn left? Is it safer to just ride on the sidewalk?

Memphis 3.0: Planning for Biking & Walking


The City of Memphis is embarking on the development of its first comprehensive plan in nearly 40 years. Attend a rally and make your voice heard. These meeting are an excellent opportunity to share your support for a more walkable and bikable city. Feedback specifically on bike lanes is being sought (they’re the topic of one of the guiding questions provided to group facilitators). The collective feedback gathered from this first round of public outreach may likely effect funding and project decisions in next year’s budget season. We urge you to find time to attend a meeting and share your thoughts and support.
