Bike Train to School: Whoo Whoo!

We had almost 60 people join us for Wednesday’s Bike Train to Peabody Elementary! After 2 years of working with this school, Revolutions was pleased to have families join us who have never even ridden with us, before! We set a schedule of six “stations” where families could join the “train.” And we had people at every stop! Thanks to Gino and Diana Barzizza for helping set up a sound system so we could listen to our playlist of Train Songs. And thanks to all the kids, families and community members who joined us for this super fun Bike Train!

Survey Says…

Remember that survey we hounded you to take about 10 road projects, including bike lanes for Riverside Drive? Well, the results are in and they are SUPER POSITIVE! Check out the results, here.

Bike to Lunch: Mama Gaia’s

To finish out Bike to Work week, why not join us for lunch?! We’re headed to Mama Gaia’s, in the Crosstown building, on Saturday, May 20. It is a fast-casual dining experience offering only organic, vegetarian menu options at affordable prices.

This ride will be a about 4.5 miles each way. You should be about to ride for about 45 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. Weather updates and more details, here.

And we’ve got Camps!

Wrench & Ride Bicycle Summer Camps

  • June 5-9: Rising 5th – 7th graders
  • June 12-16: Rising 8th – 10th graders

Wrench: In this weeklong camp, we will spend time in the Shop learning the basics of bicycle maintenance. Change a flat, clean your chain and get comfortable with keeping your bicycle in good working order. All campers will work on their own bicycles.

Ride: We will also spend part of the morning riding in the neighborhood. Later in the week, we’ll venture farther afield. We will work on how to plan a good riding route and the basics of road riding rules and skills.
