The weather…

Bicycle Ambassadors off to a great start!

Helmets: Do you know how to properly wear one? Our new Bicycle Ambassadors at Peabody Elementary do! After a quick snack and The Name Game, we talked about the importance of our brains and the fact that kids under 16 are required, by law, to wear a helmet. Then we tried some out.

A big, huge thanks to this week’s volunteers:

  • Jenni Pappas
  • Johnny Garner
  • Bill Gallops
  • Susan McKnight
  • Jaime Doss
  • Jon Pegg

If you signed up to help at future Bicycle Ambassador meetings, you’re in for a treat. We met sweet kids who are excited to get outside riding. Now we just hope that the weather will cooperate.

And speaking of weather…

Picture from our November Easy Rider TriCycle ride

Our first Easy Rider TriCycle ride, of the Spring, got cancelled. But we will try again, on Friday. Meet us at the Overton Park Golf Clubhouse at 10:00 a.m. for the First Congo ride. And if you know of groups of seniors who would like to ride with us, send them my way (info@revolutionsmemphis.com). We’re hosting group rides for other community groups on Fridays at 11:00 a.m.

Women’s Bike Chat — Next Sunday

IMG_3269.jpgLast month, we were joined by artist Kenny Hayes. He gave us some great inspiration for using bicycle parts to make art. This month, we’re going to try our hand at it. Join us for the fun! Sunday, March 20 at 2:00 p.m., with a bike ride after, if the weather is nice.
