Revolutions Bicycle Co-Op

Dec 3: Don’t let the gloomy weather get you down

Winter Calendar Planned

Memphis weather is unpredictable. So we figured, let’s plan some rides, and if it’s nice, we’ll go fun places! We’ve got Beers and Gears, Bike to Lunch and Bike to Dinner.

Bicycle Overhaul for the Home Mechanic: Jan 17, 2017

This is an extensive and fun seven-week bicycle repair and maintenance class designed for the home mechanic. Learn about your bicycle, system by system, as well as adjust, overhaul and replace worn parts. After completing this course, you will have fully overhauled your own bicycle.

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.

This ride is about a 15 mile loop from High Point Terrace. We think we’ll be actively riding for about 2 1/2 hours. We take a slow pace where we can chat with each other and take in the lights.

Moms and Tots Ride

Join us on Monday, Dec 5 at 9:30 a.m. for a morning bicycle ride, from Revolutions to Memphis Lake. Bring a snack; and blankets to share. We’ll ride over, let the kids have time to play and then ride back.

Bring your bike trailer, trail-a-bike or bike seats loaded with kids. Or, if your child is at school, just bring yourself! Have a small child, but no way to carry them on your bicycle? Let us show you our Family Cargo Bikes! Meet up at 9:30 a.m. If you are renting bicycles, please come at 9:15 a.m.

PLEASE NOTE for the Starry Nights Ride:
1. We are NOT meeting at Revolutions. We’ll meet at Cheffie’s at High Point Terrace. Either ride or drive there and meet us outside of the restaurant. Maybe grab something to eat BEFORE 6:30.

2. We are NOT renting bicycles for this ride. If you want to get a city or cargo bike from us, you’ll need to get by the Shop on Sunday afternoon. The day rates are $25 to $45.

For all of our rides:
All 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 15 minutes early. 
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, one where we can chat with each other! 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 for $5, and family cargo bikes for $10 plus tax, on the night of a group ride.

 

Congrats to our Winners!

Thanks to everyone who played our #IBIKEMPHS contest. The new Midtown Kroger’s parking lot is still very busy. Thanks, to everyone, for demonstrating how to ride bicycles there, instead. Our winners were:

The newsletter is late going on this week because I was out last night at Spillit. It was at the Clayborn Temple and absolutely amazing. And, a big congratulations to my husband, Teddy, because he is now the Grand Master Storyteller of 2016!

Engineering and Bicycles

Revolutions spent some time, this week, with the National Society of Black Engineers. We were asked to attend the November meeting of Memphis’ Junior Chapter. They meet every month to hear a variety of speakers and engage in activities to help students discover firsthand how engineering and technology relate to the world around them. A big thank you goes out to Ryan Carroll for putting together a great workshop looking at the bicycle’s history of engineering decisions. Why is the diamond frame the strongest? Why do we still use rubber tires and tubes? How do spokes keep the wheel round?

img_5894

Thanksgiving and Shopping

Revolutions will be closed for Thanksgiving Day. But we will be open on Saturday and Sunday. We’re a great place to start your Christmas shopping! We have lots refurbished bicycles available. Or you might like to give someone a spot in our upcoming Overhaul Class.

Fix a Flat class, TOMORROW!

Join us Monday, Nov 21 at 6:30 for our Fix a Flat class. We cover everything you need to know about tires and tubes.  Learn why you get flats and the best ways to prevent them, in the future.  Never get stranded again!

We’ll show you how to fix a flat. And then you’ll have time to practice. Bring your own bike, if you want to. Or use one of ours. This class is for Revolutions members, only. Not a member of Revolutions, yet? You can join when you sign up. Read more and sign up here!

Will you come chat about what your bicycle essentials are? Maybe you have a great pannier or pair of gloves. Maybe you love your reflective clothing or tips for helmet hair. Maybe you have a great set of bicycle lights or a lock that you think everyone should have. Come tell us about it. And then join us for the How to Ride class group ride. Check for updates, here.

IMG_5732.JPG

Have you been to the new Midtown Kroger?

They put in lots of bicycle parking and an outdoor repair stand. We did demonstrations, on Saturday, showing how to use the repair stand. Riding a bicycle to the new store is a MUCH better way to get there because the parking lot is crazy. And we can help you outfit your bike with baskets and bags to carry all your groceries home!

How to Ride in the Street class

After a long hiatus, we will be offering our Bicycle Overhaul for the Home Mechanic again, this January. This is a perfect opportunity to dive into working on bicycles. Maybe you’ve had your eye on a bike that needs overhauling, but you didn’t know where to start? Maybe you need an awesome Christmas gift for someone who wants to get their hands greasy! Read more and sign up now!

Upcoming Rides!

Bikes & Basketball

Are you biking with us to the Memphis Grizzlies vs. Washington Wizards, this afternoon? All our group tickets are spoken for. But you can still get your own ticket directly from the Grizzlies. We’re sitting in Section 206, Row P. It looks like there are still plenty of tickets near there, and they are only slightly more expensive than what we paid! To join our ride, meet us this afternoon at 4:45 p.m. in front of the Revolutions Bike Gate. You are welcome to join us, even if you have your own Grizz tickets.

Bike to Brunch: SATURDAY
