Women’s Bike Chat: Show ‘n Tell ‘n Ride
Join us next Sunday, Nov 20 at 2:00 p.m. Our 3rd How to Ride in the Street class is coming to an end. Since our last class is on a Women’s Bike Chat day, we’d like to have a group discussion. Will you come chat about what your bicycle essentials are? Maybe you have a great pannier or pair of gloves. Maybe you love your reflective clothing or tips for helmet hair. Maybe you have a great set of bicycle lights or a lock that you think everyone should have. Come tell us about it. And then join us for the How to Ride class group ride. Check for updates, here.
Fix a Flat class, NEXT Week!
Join us Monday, Nov 21 at 6:30 for our Fix a Flat class. We cover everything you need to know about tires and tubes. Learn why you get flats and the best ways to prevent them, in the future. Never get stranded again!
We’ll show you how to fix a flat. And then you’ll have time to practice. Bring your own bike, if you want to. Or use one of ours. This class is for Revolutions members, only. Not a member of Revolutions, yet? You can join when you sign up. Read more and sign up here!
Beers and Gears: Wiseacre Taproom, Thurs. Nov 17, 7:00 p.m.
It’s time for another Beers and Gears ride. Like to ride your bike? Like to drink beer? We do, too! Join us for an evening ride, to drink some beer. This month we’re headed to Wiseacre Brewing Co.
Plan to ride about 35 minutes each way, at a pace slow enough to chat. We hope you’ll join us for this fun and tasty ride!
Rides meet at Revolutions, on the Cooper-side of First Congo, in front of our gate with bike art above it. If you are renting bicycles, please come at 6:45.
Ride to Starry Nights at Shelby Farms, Mon. Nov 28, 6:30 p.m.!
On Monday, Nov. 28, we’re riding to Shelby Farms’ Starry Nights. We will meet outside of Cheffie’s at High Point Terrace at 6:30 p.m. Tickets, which can be purchased when we arrive at Shelby Farms, are $5/person.
This ride is about a 15 mile loop from High Point Terrace. We think we’ll be actively riding for about 2 1/2 hours. We take a slow pace where we can chat with each other and take in the lights.
1. We are NOT meeting at Revolutions. We’ll meet at Cheffie’s at High Point Terrace. Either ride or drive there and meet us outside of the restaurant. Maybe grab something to eat BEFORE 6:30.
2. We are NOT renting bicycles for this ride. If you want to get a city or cargo bike from us, you’ll need to get by the Shop on Sunday afternoon. The day rates are $25 to $45.
3. You WILL need lights. The Shelby Farms Greenline is VERY dark, at night. You must bring bicycle lights!
For all of our rides:
All rides meet at Revolutions, on the Cooper-side of First Congo, in front of our gate with bike art above it. If you are renting bicycles, please come 15 minutes early.
All rides are weather dependent (we will postpone, if it looks like rain). And we require helmets on all Revolutions sponsored rides. Bring your bike in to Revolutions ahead of time for a tune-up, to make sure it’s ready to ride! Please bring a locks, if you can. We take a pretty easy pace, one where we can chat with each other! Please remember that you ride at your own risk.
Don’t let not having a bike keep you from riding with us. We have bikes for sale, in our Shop. And we also rent adult bikes for $5, and family cargo bikes for $10 plus tax, on the night of a group ride.
