Baker Donelson Biked to Work!

Have you Biked to Work, this month? These five from the Baker Donelson Law Firm tried it and had a great time! Feeling a bit nervous about riding in to work alone, Baker Donelson contacted Revolutions and asked if we could lead a Bike to Work. We were happy to help! Everyone drove in to Revolutions. Two rented our bicycles. And we all rode Downtown together. One who rides occasionally to the office, commented on our use of neighborhood streets in our route. And we we arrived, several noted how quick and easy it was to ride in. Some of the group rewarded themselves with a beer at the Young Ave. Deli, at the end of the day. If your office would like to Bike to Work, and would like some help, just let us know!

 

School’s Out For Summer (almost)!

It’s here! The last week of the school year. Join us Friday to celebrate our teachers and all their exhausting work!! We’re headed out for what we’re calling  V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N: Teachers and Friends Tap Room RideSo, if you are a teacher, or you’ve ever been taught by one, come ride with us!

Some of these people are teachers, and many were taught by teachers!

We’ll gather in front of Revolutions at 6:30, on Friday, May 26 and then ride to High Cotton. We’ll stop at a bar along the way and then end up at Memphis Made.

Please NOTE: We are not renting bikes for this ride. Also, you might want to bring snacks along. All the breweries usually have food trucks, but sometimes they run out of food! All rides are weather dependent (we will cancel, 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! We take a pretty easy pace. 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. Read more and get weather updates, here. 

Summer Camp: Last Call!!

You still have time. Sign up that kid you know for our Wrench & Ride Bicycle Summer Camp. We’ll ride them all over town and then let them get their hands greasy in our workshop. Read more and sign up, 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.
