Rides, Rentals and Demolition!

Demolition Night, Monday at 6:30

Have you been to a Demolition Night, yet? We have several regulars who enjoy working through our donated bikes looking for parts worth saving. You don’t have to know if a part is worth saving or is headed to the scrap. Our Repair Shop Manager helps evaluate that. But work on this night helps us keep our stock of used parts sorted and available.

New members often enjoy participating in Demolition Night because we’re just breaking down bikes, so you don’t have to worry about breaking something! And, work on this night is worth $10 in Revolutions Bucks. Do you know about Revolutions Bucks? If you are thinking of getting a bike from us to overhaul yourself, you can use Revolutions Bucks towards that purchase! You can also use this coin to bring a friend to Open Shop. Maybe you know someone who wants to try out Revolutions but hasn’t joined, yet. Earn some Revolutions Bucks and then bring your friend as a guest to Open Shop, and show off how much fun you have with us!

We’re rolling around Cooper-Young, again, tomorrow night. We’ll meet at 6:45, but if you want to rent one of our bikes (for just $5), come a few minutes early. Wear a helmet and bring bike lights. And we’ll enjoy a bit of the evening, together.



Did you miss Bike to Dinner?

We had 32 folks, and it looked like this:

Thanks, again, to Blue Nile Ethiopian Kitchen, for hosting us!!


Did you know that…

Revolutions has a Rental Fleet of bikes?!

One of these three ladies was hosting her out-of-town sisters. So she rented some bikes and they enjoyed a ride down the Shelby Farms Greenline. Do you have family or friends visiting soon? Rent them a bike!

And remember, you MUST wear a helmet, for all Revolutions sponsored rides. Bring lights, because it might be dark by the time we finish!

Thursday, July 30: Community Group Ride in Orange Mound??

Oh dear! We don’t have details to share with you, yet, on this new partnership. But we’d love for you to ride with us, if we get it worked out. So, just as soon as we know the plan, we’ll send out an email and post on our Facebook page.

Also on Thursday, July 30, Bikes on Broad ride.

This is a monthly ride that is a lot of fun. This month, because we are hoping to also ride in Orange Mound, if you are attending Bikes on Broad plan to meet the group at the Overton Park Bike Arch at 6:00. The theme for July is: Bicycling in Lycra or Spandex.


Upcoming Events:

Saturday, August 15 from 1-3: Bike Rodeo!

We’ve been asked to participate in a Back To School – Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Event. And we are  providing the Bike Rodeo! This is a really fun event and we will need lots of volunteers. So, email me now, if you are interested. And don’t be surprised if you get an email from me soon, begging you to help!!
