Summer Overhaul Class — Coming Soon!
This Summer, Revolutions is offering the “Bicycle Overhaul” course, 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.
Class starts Thursday, July 9th. We’re asking that you bring in the bike you want to overhaul ahead of the class, so that we can give it a quick assessment. Or, buy a frame from us! Read more and sign up here!
Bike to Dinner?
So last month we hosted Dinner and Bikes, a great evening of films and discussion about groundswell movements from near and far. We watched shorts about folks organizing Sunday group rides, a Mexican superhero named Peatónito trying to make cities for people instead of for cars, and many more. We also had a yummy vegan meal.
So, this month, how about biking to dinner? I know it’s already getting hot. But surely if we gather at 6:30, and ride downtown, it will at least be cooler on our ride home, right? Who’s with me?! I’m thinking maybe we ride to Gus’s Fried Chicken, (I recognize that couldn’t be farther from last month’s vegan meal!).
Unless it is raining, let’s plan to meet at Revolutions’ Bike Gate, on Cooper, at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday June 17 and we’ll Bike to Dinner!
Oh, and remember, please wear a helmet for all Revolutions sponsored rides!!
Outdoor Repair Stand
Here’s someone using Operation Crosstown’s Outdoor Bicycle Repair Station.
Be sure to share pictures with us, if you see others using it!
Not sure how to use the repair stand? Here’s a video:
Bike Walk Memphis
Livable Memphis wants to invite everyone to this month’s Pizza with Planners, Thursday evening (6/18) at the Benjamin L Hooks Central Library from 5:30 to 7. They’ll be brainstorming and listening to what’s going on in your neighborhood for walking, bicycling, and transit, with the ultimate goal of building safer streets for everyone in Memphis!
