Bicycle Ambassadors are Coming!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…99, 100!

We took inventory, for the first time ever, last Sunday. A big thank you goes out to volunteers Kendra Hotz, Jay Fite, Anne Dugan and Dave Lindstrom. Surely it will be easier, next time! As we were going through our things, we found stuff we don’t need.

So, we’re having a New Year’s Sale!

Are you in need of some tire sealant for your tubeless tires, or hydraulic oil for your brakes? How about a fancy 11-speed chain? We’ve got a deal for you!! New Year’s Sale, 20% off!

Check us out Sundays 2:00-6:00 and Mondays/Thursdays 6:30-9:00.

Bicycle Ambassadors Overhaul Night

Revolutions spent the fall fixing up bicycle for our new Training Fleet. We completed 17 of 40! But we are temporarily setting those bicycles aside while we fix up bicycles for the kids at Peabody Elementary School. In February, we plan to launch the first ever Bicycle Ambassadors program. The Bicycle Ambassadors Program will recognize 16 student leaders from Peabody School who will receive refurbished bicycles, and safety and leadership training to promote bicycle riding among their peers. They will lead “bike trains” and help guide other students to school safely. And they will host a community-wide Bike Rodeo. But first, they need bicycles to ride.

Last Monday, we pulled out lots of 20″ bikes and a couple of 24″. One volunteer was an 11-year-old member of the Midtown Bike Girls. She was pleased to help fix up bicycles that will get other kids riding.We made great progress this week. Won’t you join us to do some more?
