Bike Train, rolling!
The Shelby County Schools liked our Bike Train so much, they made two videos. Check them out, here!
A Grant to Carry Bikes by Bike?!
What if we could pedal a fleet of kids bikes to a school across town? Or what if we could bring bikes with us, when we start a ride at the Overton Park Bike Arch? The Monogram Loves Kids Foundation has grant money for kids projects and we think carrying bikes to kids, by bike, is just the thing. The great thing about this grant is that the Monogram Foods employees in Memphis get to decide who gets the money. So our question to you is: Do you know anyone who works for Monogram Foods? And if so, could you tell them how great Revolutions is?!
Our dream is to have a set up that looks something like one of these:
Summer Camp: Last Call, for Real!!
We have a great group of Camp Counselors, and they are ready to ride.
Do you know a kid who wants to wrench and ride with us. You have one more week to sign up for our Wrench & Ride Bicycle Summer Camp. We’ll ride all over town and then get our hands greasy in our workshop. Read more and sign up, here!
Bike to Dinner: Summer Night Rides!
Our Wednesday Bike to Dinner rides are on the way back. Join us, Wednesday, June 7 as we enter our 3rd year! We’re headed Downtown to Central Barbecue for another delicious meal. We love summer Bike to Dinner rides because even if it’s hot and sweaty on the way out, the sun goes down and the ride home is pleasant and cool. This year’s schedule looks like this:
- June 7: Central Barbecue
- June 21: High Point Pizza
- July 5: Mama Gaia
- July 19: Sabor Caribe
- August 2: El Palmar and La Michoacana
- August 16: Mardi Gras Memphis

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.
