Biking to meals and TriCycles on the move

Bike to BrunchIMG_2548

Last week, we Biked to Dinner with 18 folks. Las Delicias was tasty and Spottswood was a nice ride from Cooper-Young. I was reminded that, during the summer, we talked about going to Bryant’s for brunch. This sunny cooler weather seems like the perfect time to make that trek. So, mark your calendars and plan to join us, this Saturday, Oct 17 to head to Summer Ave. We’ll meet at Revolutions’ Bike Gate at 8:30 a.m. (unless it’s raining). Check out the Facebook event for any updates or cancellations.

A Very Big Thank You for help with the Easy Rider TriCycles!!

A huge “thank you” goes out to Madeleine Edwards, Revolutions member and owner of Get Green Recycle Works. She hauled the City of Memphis Division of Parks and Neighborhoods’ TriCycles to Overton Park, this week. The City bought ten TriCycles and Revolutions will be hosting group rides for Senior Citizens from around the city. So far, I’ve talked to several Senior Community Centers and Residential Centers. They all expressed interest and three have scheduled rides.

Women’s Bike Chat — Next Sunday

This month, we will be joined by Karen Thornton of the Mississippi River Corridor. This organization works to identify, conserve and interpret the region’s natural, cultural and scenic resources to improve the quality of life and prosperity in West Tennessee along the six counties that front the River to include Shelby, Tipton, Lauderdale, Dyer, Lake and Obion counties.

Join us at 2:00 p.m. and bring your bike, for a short ride, afterwards!

Fellas, PLEASE NOTE:
