To Market to Market SLOW Ride led by Women’s Bike Chat
Yesterday’s SLOW Ride to the Downtown Farmers’ Market was a lot of fun. We had 26 people on bikes! And we only had one flat tire…mine (thanks MeganMarie, for bringing that extra tube!).
I want to extend a warm welcome to MeganMarie Miller. She is participating in 1st Congo’s SOAR program (a Season of Action and Reflection). She will be spending half of her hours in the Shop and in her first week, she’s already been a great help organizing, planning and working on bikes!
Thursday began our annual Christmas Bike Build. This year we’re building/overhauling bikes for 28 kids from the YMCA. Last Thursday, we worked on truing wheels and adjusting their hubs. Don’t know how to do that? Join us this Thursday, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. and get a lot of hands on learning!!
Tomorrow, Monday Oct. 6, begins our October classes. This month’s topic is Bike Assessment: What is that squeak? Where should I begin, on fixes to my bike? Join us for this basic assessment class to find out. We’ll practice on Revolutions bikes. And we’ll have time to take a look at yours. So bring your own bike along, too. Class begins at 6:30 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: This Monday will be a Women’s Only class. But we’ll run this same topic on Oct 20, open to everyone. You must be a Revolutions member to attend classes. And you can join when you arrive for class.
