Have you heard about the Taste of Cooper-Young? It is an annual event that offers food samples from a wide variety of local restaurants. There will be a silent auction featuring items from the Cooper-Young community and all around the city, as well as live music!
This will be a great event to ride your bike to, and you can park at the new Bike Corral in front of 1st Congo! Or, you could ride your bike up and down to the tastings, so that you could quickly head back to the Silent Auction tent, if you wanted to check on your bids! Tickets are going fast, and there is only a limited number. So, read more information here and get your tickets, today!
Women’s Bicycle Chat — Update!
Last Sunday, Revolutions hosted our first Women’s Bicycle Chat. We had almost thirty women attend! We were all different ages and abilities. And we plan to make this a regular offering, maybe with a ride, afterwards!
Some ideas that came out of our chat include: a women’s only bicycle maintenance class, more specific rides (for seniors, women, etc), and a Bike Rodeo. For the Bike Rodeo, one suggestion was to ask MATA to bring a bicycle rack equipped bus, so that we could practice placing bikes on the rack. We thought it would feel like less pressure to try it this way, first, instead of while holding up a bus full of riders!
Thanks, to everyone who joined us. If you’d like to receive updates on this group, please join our mailing list.
Bicycle Shop Refurbishment and Temporary Shop Closing
We had some helpers, this week, in what I am calling The Great Clean-Up:
Most of you will recognize Revolutions’ Founding Director, Anthony Siracusa. Then there is me in the middle, and Revolutions’ second Director, Kyle Wagenschutz. Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future? Thanks, guys, for all the help!
