Bicycle Story Time!

We taught 3 children to ride, last Saturday at the Cossitt Library. Won’t you help spread the word about our next two events? They are on Saturday, April 22 and Saturday, May 13.



Coming UP: Bike to Lunch

On Saturday, April 15, we’re headed to Deja Vu.

This ride will be a about 5.5 miles each way! You should be about to ride for about 65 minutes, without a break. We have bikes to rent, if you need one: City Bikes, Family Cargo Bikes and trail-a-bikes that we can help you attach to your bicycle, so a kid can help you pedal.

Rides meet at Revolutions, on the Cooper-side of First Congo, in front of our gate with bike art above it. We’ll meet at 10:30 and roll out by 10:45, at the latest. If you are renting bicycles, please come at 10:15. Find weather updates and more information, here.

Next Week’s Basic Bike Assessment

Join, Monday, April 17 at 6:30, us for a class to learn about your bicycle! We’ll talk about how to check that it’s in good working order and safe to ride. We’ll also include some good cycling tricks-of-the-trade for making it easier to stay on your saddle. And you’ll come away with an idea of what you might like to update or fix up on your bike during our Members’ Open Shop sessions.

This class is free for Revolutions members. Not a member of Revolutions, yet? You can join below. Or, you can pay for a single class, without membership, for just $10. Read more here.

We Rode the Bikes and Drank the Beer!

Yesterday’s Tour De Brewer #1 was a resounding success! 60 people joined us for this tour of Memphis’ local beers. We headed to GhostRiver, first, after everyone earned their beer by riding the hills on Crump. Then it was a quick jaunt over to High Cotton. Wiseacre was third. And for those who made it to the very end, we got a group picture and an excellent tour and tasting of Memphis Made’s brewing process.

Thanks, so much, to our friend Andy Ashby of Memphis Made. He shared insider tips and a general love of beer and bicycles!

And a huge thanks to all of our volunteers who made this ride so much fun. I’m so grateful to: Jay Fite for planning an excellent route and confidently leading us through it! And our other ride leaders: Don Gaines, Rica Davis, Abbey Judd, Tony Brooks, Teddy Crum, Charles Ferryman, Johnny Garner, Reggie McGregor for encouraging all our riders!

You can see all the fun on our Instagram and with the hashtag #tourdebrewmem and on Facebook here!
