Yesterday’s Bike Rodeo was a sweaty success. We transported our course materials and booth, totally by bike:
And we had about 30 kids ride the course. Glenview is a beautiful park, and it has great trails to practice riding on. Here’s a map of two possible routes from Revolutions. We went south on Cooper to McLemore. But if the train had been sitting across Cooper, we would have taken Walker down to Payne’s BBQ. It is definitely worth checking out!
Women’s Bike Chat, TODAY, at 2:00
We’re celebrating our first anniversary with a clothing swap party. Plan to bring 3-5 items of clean and gently used clothing, jewelry, shoes or bags. We’ll also need some handheld snacks (so we can munch and shop at the same time). And, bring your own tasty beverages (you choose whether these are adult or not!). Read more here.
Fix a Flat class, Monday!
There is still room, in this Monday’s Fix a Flat class. Read the details and sign up here.
Bike to Dinner, Wednesday
Plan to join us this Wednesday, at 6:30 to Bike to Dinner. It will be our 2nd attempt to go to 3 Angels on Broad. The weather was too crazy, last time. Check out more details here. And if we cancel, we’ll post it on the Facebook event.
