Our Busy Schedule

Monday Night — Two Choices

On Monday, you can either do Demolition Night or the Neighborhood SLOW Ride and Kidical Mass. Both are fun.

Demolition Night helps us work through our donated bikes to find parts worth saving, and scrap headed for the scrap heap. Work on this night will also help us keep our stock of used parts sorted and available. This is a great night for new members to participate in because we’re just breaking down bikes, so you don’t have to worry about breaking something!

Neighborhood SLOW Ride and Kidical Mass is a slow and easy ride through our neighborhood. Ramble around with us as the sun goes down for some fresh air at the end of a hot day. This is a great ride for families. If your kid is riding on two wheels, without training wheels, they are welcome to ride their own bikes! Or maybe you just haven’t been on a bike in awhile. Rent one of ours, and get back to bicycling!

We’ll meet in front of the Revolutions Bike Gate, on Monday at 6:45. And if you’d like to try one of our Easy Rider Tri-Cycles, we have 10 of them! City bikes and trikes will be available to rent, for $5, plus tax.

Overhaul Night is Back

Our second Overhaul class just ended and we want the students to get some more practice. So, Overhaul Night is back. This experienced night is for folks who have taken the Overhaul Class.

Under supervision, you will work on different types of brakes, bottom brackets, etc as you help us get bikes ready for folks to ride.

You didn’t take the Overhaul Class but you know what you’re doing around a bike? You are also invited!

Work on this night will help us overhaul some of our donations. We need more bike available for folks who want to ride!

Want to take the Overhaul Class?

The Fall class starts on Thursday, October 8. Read more and sign up here!

 

Bike Polo Tournament — Should you go?

Our friends from the Memphis Hardcourt Bike Polo are hosting a tournament on Aug 29 and 30. It will be a big gathering of bicycle people from all over the Southeast. They’re having a kick-off party, with a group ride, on Friday night (7:30 p.m. at the Cooper-Young Gazebo) and all are invited.

Their tournament will be held at the Glenview Park (1141 S. Barksdale). Does Glenview sound familiar? That’s because that is the same place we went last week, for the City of Memphis Bike and Walk Fest. It is a beautiful park, with paved paths for biking and walking, and lots of beautiful trees. It’s a great place to hang out. If you missed the Bike Rodeo, why not check out this neighborhood gem while also checking out some Bike Polo? I  made this map, for riding from Revolutions, if you’re not sure where Glenview is. I give two route choices, in case the train is blocking Cooper.

The Shop will be CLOSED during this tournament. But come out to Glenview Park and get your bike worked on there! And Hot Mess Burritos will arrive at 1:00, on Saturday, to serve lunch!

Tour De Coop, Register NOW!!!

Register this week, if you want to be sure to get this year’s awesome tee-shirt! $12 gets you the shirt and an super ride!

Rider leaders/chasers needed: I’m looking for folks to lead the long rides and the family short rides. If you’re interested, email me at infoATrevolutionsmemphisDOTcom. Volunteering comes with a free T-shirt!
