Training Fleet Overhaul Nights
We haven’t quite made our goal of 40 bicycles refurbished and overhauled. But we’re getting lots of requests for ride training with our Training Fleet. So, won’t you plan to join us to fix up these bikes? Anytime the calendar says “Training Fleet Overhaul Nights” we have tasks for everyone from beginners to experienced mechanics. Help us complete these bikes so we can use them around the community, this Spring!! Your next chance to help is Thursday, March 31 from 6:30 to 9:00. And don’t forget, we reward you for working on Revolutions bikes with Revolutions Bucks. These can be used on a purchase of a to-be-overhauled bike for you or a friend!
Last Sunday, Women’s Bike Chat tried our hand at making art out of used bike parts. Check out all the creativity!
Easy Rider TriCycles — to ride, again.
The Easy Rider TriCycles program is intended for Senior Citizens, but we’ll take anyone who is available on Friday mornings! Our ride offers a way to get outside, visit with friends and get a little exercise. We have ten TriCycles available, so we take turns if more than ten showed up. We were excited to have fifteen riders join us for our first Spring ride.
We are offering a 10:00 a.m. drop in ride, and a second ride at 11:00 for scheduled groups from around the City. Our next ride is Friday, April 1st (no fooling!). If you know of groups who would like to participate, please email Sylvia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- This ride is free and provide by the City of Memphis Division of Parks and

- Drop-in ride at 10:00 a.m.
