Dinner and Bikes, a traveling road show of bicycle inspiration, is coming to Revolutions Bicycle CoOp, at First Congregational Church on May 20, 2015 from 7-10p.m. 

This will be a great event to talk about equity in transportation in Memphis and around the country.

We’ll have complimentary, indoor bike valet. And we’ll raffle a cool overhauled bike.

Tickets are $30.

 

 

 

Revolutions on Choose 901

Choose 901 did an awesome video on Revolutions. Check it out here. And then come into the shop for classes, rides, bikes and more!!

 

Did you get a bike this weekend?

Hopefully you already heard that the Memphis Bicycle Co. on Summer is having a liquidation sale, this weekend. Many of those bikes are new and never ridden. But all of those bikes have been sitting in that shop for years and years. It won’t come as a surprise to you, dear reader, that vintage bikes need new rubber and grease to run smoothly. If you need a tune-up to your new treasure, bring it in! You can do it yourself or pay us to do it for you!!

 

Flowers for Bikes on Broad

The next Bikes on Broad is Thursday, May 28. Meet up at 5:15 p.m. at our Revolutions’ Bike Gate, on Cooper. 11210468_686125428179807_3286447046321238945_n

This month, the City wants to count people on bikes with baskets or racks. And there are extra points for flowers! Revolutions has 7 bikes with baskets, if you need to rent one. And the farmers from Roots Memphis said they could make us some bouquets. They’re checking on a price, but they assured me they could do bouquets for $8 or less. We’ll need to put in an order by Tuesday, May 26. So email me if you want in!

For the ride, we’ll meet at Revolutions at 5:15 and then ride over to the Overton Park Bike Gate, to meet up with more folks. Then we’ll roll down the Hampline to join in the fun at the Rec Room. A food truck will be available. Or bring a snack supper, to eat. The Rec Room serves beer. And you can read more details here.
