Last Bike to Dinner, of the Summer!

Join us for our last weeknight Bike to Dinner of the Summer. We’ll end the season with a ride to Mardi Gras Memphis.IMG_4379
This ride will be just over 3.5 miles each way. You should be about to ride for about 40 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 6:30 p.m. and roll out by 6:45, at the latest. If you are renting bikes, please arrive by 6:15 p.m.

More info and weather updates, here.


Bikes and Baseball!

Next Sunday, Aug 20, we’re headed to a Redbirds game! The first pitch is at 2:05, so we’re meeting early. Join us at noon, in front of Revolutions, and we’ll ride down together. We plan to sit on the Bluff, so we’ll just buy our tickets when we get there.

Have a small child, who likes to ride? Bring them in a bike trailer or let us show you our Family Cargo Bikes! Big kids are welcome to ride their own bikes, if they can ride all the way downtown and back!

We take a pretty easy pace, where folks can talk to each other while we ride. This ride will be about 6 miles, or about 65 minutes of riding, EACH WAY. Please remember that you ride at your own risk.

For more information, go here.


Take a class with us!


All of these classes are great for folks who are new to Revolutions! We’ll demystify the parts of your bicycle and the tools used to fix it up. And on the street, we’ll help you figure out what to do when the bike lane ends! Basic Bike Assessment is free with your membership. And our brand new Tune up class is just $40, for members! We also have How to Ride in the Street, to get you out riding safely and confidently. We would love for you to join us for any, or all!, of these!
