We have been busy cleaning, sorting and resetting the space at Revolutions. And now, it is time to re-open. Please join us at the Cooper-Young Festival, on Saturday, September 13 for our Grand Re-Opening celebration. We’ll have a booth right out front of the Shop with information about the Fall, including upcoming classes, Open Shop time and our Christmas Bike Build for YMCA kids. The Shop will also be open for an Open House. Also on the day of the Cooper-Young Fest, join us at 10 a.m.for a Ribbon Cutting to officially re-open the Shop.
And then start thinking about how you want to connect, or re-connect with Revolutions. Did you know that we now have a Women’s Bike Chat? We’re meeting on the 3rd Sunday of the month to talk about all sorts of bicycling issues and interests. This Fall there will be a few classes, on Monday evenings. And on Thursdays we will be building bikes for kids participating in our YMCA/Shelby Farms bike donation program. Sundays will now be used for Open Shop time where members can work on their own bikes. You’ll be able to bring your bike in and do minor repairs, using Revolutions’ tools and expertise. Not sure what that squeak is on your bike? Bring it in on a Sunday afternoon and we’ll see if we can figure it out, together!
For the full Fall calendar, go here. More details will be added in the coming weeks. But we look forward to getting back to the work of fixing up bicycles so we can get more folks riding the streets of Memphis.
More Upcoming Dates
Sunday, Sept 14 will be our first Open Shop time. Bicycle stands will be available on a first come, first served basis. Open Shop is a time for you to bring your bike in and accomplish small repairs.
Then on Thursday, Sept 18, it’s the Taste of Cooper-Young. This great tasting of the restaurants of Cooper-Young is a fundraiser benefiting all of First Congregational Church. We want you to come out, eat a lot of great food, participate in the silent auction and maybe even use the new bike racks right in front of 1st Congo! You can read more information here and get your tickets, today.
Then, to round out a very full week, plan to ride in the 2014 Tour de Coop on Saturday, Sept 20. There are three ride choices, a Mini Tour that will be just 2 miles (great for families and small kids on balance bikes and small pedal bikes) all the way up to a 15 mile ride. More info here.
