Volunteering, Classes and Zip Car!

Bicycle Ambassadors Volunteer Orientation — Tomorrow! Bike Rodeo Helpers

Still not sure exactly what we’re doing with the Revolutions Bicycle Ambassadors? We were featured, this week, on Make Memphis! Read more about our program, here!

In order to work with the children, volunteers MUST be approved by Shelby County Schools (SCS). This involves:

  1. An SCS Volunteer Orientation
  2. An SCS Application form, filled out by the volunteer and signed by Peabody’s principal
  3. Fingerprinting and background check, done at the School Board office

In order to make this as easy as possible, we scheduled the SCS Volunteer Orientation, to be held at Revolutions, on Monday, February 8 at 6:45 p.m. This should last no more than one hour.

During the Orientation, you will have the chance to fill out the SCS application form and sign up for an appointment to get fingerprinted.

If you are even thinking about helping with this program, it would be great for you to attend this orientation on February 8! Please email Sylvia at info@revolutionsmemphis.com, if you are able to join us!!

 

Basic Bike Assessment Class — Next Week!

On Monday, February 15 at 6:30, we will host our Basic Bike Assessment class. If you are new to Revolutions, this class is a great introduction to the Shop. And, if you bring your own bike, you will have a chance to make a list of all the work you could do on it during our Open Shop hours. This class is included free, with Revolutions Membership. If you’re not a member, yet, you can join when you sign up.

 

Flat Fix Class

IMG_0974

Thursday, February 25 at 6:30 brings the return of our Flat Fix Class. This month, we have a special guest teacher! Robert Taylor is the former owner and founder of Victory Bicycle Studio, with over 30-years experience in the bike industry.  Robert served on Trek’s advisory board, is a certified USCF race mechanic, a  Fit Kit and Michael Sylvester certified fit specialist, and generally a pretty nice guy.  He has spent over half his life working on bikes:  from a shop rat, to the manager and buyer for a multiple store chain. If flat tires keep you from riding, join us for this great class! This class is also for members, only. But you can join when you sign up!

 


ZipCars are Coming to First Congo!

Launch Date is Saturday, February 27th, at the Farmers Market.

Zip car is a great resource for bicyclists! We have learned that every time a zipcar goes ON the road, 10 to 15 cars go OFF the road because people use them for their occasional needs (doctor appointments, grocery shopping, airport runs) and otherwise they either walk, ride a bike, or own one family car rather than two. We will have two cars located on our south parking lot – easily visible on Cooper Street, right next to First Congo’s bike corral. One will be a compact car and one will be a larger SUV. If you’re interested in learning more about using zipcars here in Memphis, come to the Cooper Young Community Farmers Market on Feb 27th to ask questions, or go to http://www.zipcar.com/memphis

IMG_2480

On Monday, six volunteers climbed through our pile of bikes. We identified nine that are the same! I actually thought there would be more that were identical to each other. Turns out, we have a wide variety of old bikes! Anyway, we thought working on  just one model, at a time, would give us an easy way to build our skills and deal with any problems. So far, so good. After choosing nine bikes, we each took one to assess. They all need tires and tubes, and some need brake and shifter help. But a couple were in practically mint condition.

On Thursday, we moved on to overhauling the wheel hubs and replacing the tires and tubes. We will continue that work, this coming Thursday. Hope you’ll join us!

Basic Bike Assessment Class

Join us on Monday night at 6:30 to gain an understanding of the different systems on your bicycle.  Make sure your bike is in good working order and safe to ride.  And you’ll come away with an idea of what you might like to update or fix up on your bike. Read more and sign up, here.

How about a Bike to Dinner?!

We never made it to our 3 Angels Bike to Dinner, because of rain. Shall we try again, this Wednesday? The sun sets at 6:37, so you will definitely need lights! If you don’t have any, come early to buy some from us. And if you want to ride one of our city bikes, they’ll be available to rent for $5, plus tax. Please remember that helmets are required, on all Revolutions sponsored rides!

Community Ride to VisionWalk

Foundation Fighting Blindness makes millions of dollars available each year to support research seeking a cure for retinal degenerative diseases such as macular degeneration. Revolutions member Marsha Walton is organizing a team to participate in FFB’s annual VisionWalk.  You can find more information here.

Join Marsha and other Team Members on 
Saturday, October 10, VisionWalk Day, for a
Morning Bike Ride on the Greenline to Shelby Farms Park

Gather around 8:45, and we’ll take off at 9:00 sharp
from 
the bicycle arch in Overton Park. 

(The archway is at the East Parkway- Broad Avenue entrance to the Park)

Once you get to the park, there will be food, music, and activities for the children.  The walk begins at 10:30.  There is no cost to join the walkers, although donations are happily accepted.

The 3rd Annual Tour De Coop — Register Now!
September 26, 2015

Tour de Coop-2013Do you know about the Tour De Coop? It is a guided and self-guided bicycle tour of urban chicken coops, gardens, and beehives benefiting GrowMemphis: The Food Advisory Council and Revolutions Bicycle Cooperative.

Inspired by our city’s vibrant local food movement and the rise of urban chicken keeping in Memphis, the Tour de Coop will lead cyclists on a guided tour of gardens, chicken coops and bee hives. This year we depart from Overton Square, and view the neighborhoods of Midtown, Evergreen, Overton Park, Annesdale, and Cooper-Young.

This isn’t officially a Kidical Mass ride. But if your child is riding a pedal bike without training wheels, and can go for several blocks, it might be a fun ride to join in, on. We ride very slowly for about 50 minutes!

And remember, you MUST wear a helmet, for all Revolutions sponsored rides. Bring lights, because it might be dark by the time we finish!

Michael and Giovanna rode their new tandem!

Regions Bank, Now Nice to Bicycles!

The Regions bank branch at 2053 Union Ave previously had a policy that reserved the drive-through window for cars and trucks, only. However, after riding up to the window, twice, and speaking to the managers, Regions changed their policy! The branch at Union and Cooper is now ready to receive business on bicycles. We are still working on encouraging them to install a sturdy bike rack. But way to go Regions for changing your policy to become Nice to Bicycles!! Be sure to ride up and say thanks!

A Neighborhood SLOW Ride

Last Monday night, twenty folks gathered to ride slowly through the neighborhood. The day was startingIMG_1168g to cool off. But the sun was still shining. Several folks borrowed our Revolutions City Bikes and the Easy Rider Tri-Cycles. Dave Lindstrom and Teddy Crum led the group through a zig-zagging trip through Cooper-Young. They were gone about an hour and that was just right because the sun was sinking by the time they returned.

One rider, 1st Congo member Rosa Mena, told me that since she is just learning to ride, she wasn’t comfortable taking a bike out on the streets. We spent the time circling the labyrinth parking lot. And by the time the group returned, Rosa was pedaling like a pro!

IMG_1174

This ride was so popular we’re going to make it regular for the rest of the summer. Join us every two weeks at 6:45.
And if you’d like to use one of our
bikes or Tri-Cycles, you can rent one for $5.

PLEASE NOTE that all Revolutions sponsored
rides require a helmet.

Will you ride with us on Monday, July 13, at 6:45 p.m.?

 

 

 

A Bike Partnership with First Baptist Church – Broad!

Mark your calendars and plan to join us on Sunday, July 19 when we ride over to First Baptist Church – Broad! Our two churches are starting a partnership around bicycles! We will ride over to their worship service, and then join them on a group ride. Like First Congo, First Baptist Broad is along a great bike lane. We want to take advantage of that location to have an easy ride down to the Overton Park Bike Gate and back. Yes, it will be hot! But riding a bicycle provides a breeze! So, won’t you plan to join us?! More details, in the coming weeks. But email Sylvia, now, if you know you’d like to participate!

Demolitions, Overhauls and More Rides!

We’re staying busy, around Revolutions. And we want you to be involved! So here’s what’s happening this week, plus a little about what we did last week and what’s coming up later in the Summer!

What is Overhaul Night? 

Overhaul Night is for folks who have taken the Overhaul Class to practice their skills. Get your hands on some more bikes by helping to overhaul some of our donations.

We also welcome folks with previous bike wrenching skills. This is definitely an experienced night (not for beginners).

Under supervision, you will work on different types of brakes, bottom brackets, etc as you help us get bikes ready for folks to ride.

What is Demolition Night?

Join us for Demolition Night! This is a night to work through our donated bikes to find parts worth saving, and scrap headed for the scrap heap. Work on this night will also help us keep our stock of used parts sorted and available.

This is a great night for new members to participate in because we’re just breaking down bikes, so you don’t have to worry about breaking something!

What We Did Last Week

IMG_1077We had a great Bike to Dinner, on Wednesday. Eighteen folks joined us for a ride to Gus’s Downtown. We are awarding them a  Nice to Bicycles designation. And, though we were able to lock up to their fence, we are encouraging them to get a sturdy bike rack.

IMG_1085On Saturday, Livable Memphis rented our entire Rental Fleet, plus some. They were hosting the Board of IOBY, who were in town for a retreat. Most of the IOBY Board live in Brooklyn, with some in San Francisco, Cleveland, Washington DC and New Orleans. Even visiting from such exciting places, they were extremely impressed with Memphis. They rode a 9-mile loop from Revolutions, to visit several Livable Memphis projects, like the new mural under the Central Ave bridge just West of Cooper, and the pocket garden at Madison and Belvedere. When we arrived at the Overton Park Bike Gate, their were audible “oohs” and “ahs”!

Our new signs arrived! It’s now easier than ever to find us!!

Recognition, Classes and Hot Summer Rides

Did you hear? Memphis is now a Bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community. And we are receiving some nice extra recognition of our efforts in an article by the League of American Bicyclists.

Summer Overhaul Class — Coming Soon!

This Summer, Revolutions is offering the “Bicycle Overhaul” cRevolutionsRecRoom51ourse, an extensive and fun seven-week bicycle repair and maintenance class designed for the home mechanic. Learn about your bicycle, system by system, as well as adjust, overhaul and replace worn parts. After completing this course, you will have fully overhauled your own bicycle.

 

Class starts Thursday, July 9th. We’re asking that you bring in the bike you want to overhaul ahead of the class, so that we can give it a quick assessment. Or, buy a frame from us! Read more and sign up here!

Bike to Dinner?

So last month we hosted Dinner and Bikes, a great evening of films and discussion about groundswell movements from near and far. We watched shorts about folks organizing Sunday group rides, a Mexican superhero named Peatónito trying to make cities for people instead of for cars, and many more. We also had a yummy vegan meal.

Gus-Fried-Chicken-Memphis

So, this month, how about biking to dinner? I know it’s already getting hot. But surely if we gather at 6:30, and ride downtown, it will at least be cooler on our ride home, right? Who’s with me?! I’m thinking maybe we ride to Gus’s Fried Chicken, (I recognize that couldn’t be farther from last month’s vegan meal!).

Unless it is raining, let’s plan to meet at Revolutions’ Bike Gate, on Cooper, at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday June 17 and we’ll Bike to Dinner!

Oh, and remember, please wear a helmet for all Revolutions sponsored rides!!

Outdoor Repair Stand

Here’s someone using Operation Crosstown’s Outdoor Bicycle Repair Station.

Be sure to share pictures with us, if you see others using it!

Bike Walk Memphis

Livable Memphis wants to invite everyone to this month’s Pizza with Planners, Thursday evening (6/18) at the Benjamin L Hooks Central Library from 5:30 to 7. They’ll be brainstorming and listening to what’s going on in your neighborhood for walking, bicycling, and transit, with the ultimate goal of building safer streets for everyone in Memphis! Please register at the link above so they’ll know how much pizza to order. The event is free and open to the public.
