New Rider Profiles


on May 26, 2010   comments 0

Meet the women/ trans/ femme (WTF) cyclists that make Grease Rag, and the Twin Cities, a better place to ride.  We have three new rider profiles, with several others in the works.

Meet Nickel

Certified LCI and skill-share facilitator, her "Best biking story" is really worth the read!

Meet Susan


Leader of the WOW ride, I hope people ask about her "training plan" because I am really curious

Meet Lucille

She really does have the most bad ass stories, including the time when she chased some roadies down with a huge sheet cake in a trailer she was towing

Thank you, beautiful WTFs of Grease Rag for sharing your stories with us!

Reflection on Our 5/4 Group Ride to Sibley's Women and Transgender Night


on May 19, 2010   comments 15

The first ride to Sibley's Women and Transgender Night was so much fun, we decided we are going to do it every month!  It was an adventure not without incident though.  =]

Sibley Bike Depot

Jamie and I left Sunrise Cyclery at 6:10, to meet up with Susan at the Midtown Greenway Freewheel.  Jamie peeled off to go home, and Susan and I rolled out to the Sabo Bridge to pick up Kat.  Our group of three rode east on the Greenway, south on West River Road, and across the Lake Marshall Bridge.

Nail in the tire.

Well, Kat and I made it across- Susan's front tire picked up a nail and she flat-ed out.  I was almost happy that this happened so we could practice our skills!  (I am a weirdo like that.)  After Susan removed her tire and tube I started to patch the two (entrance and exit) punctures. While I was sanding away, a huge dark cloud moved in, along with gusts of wind that were threatening to blow away my wrenches!  The sky was looking wicked and we were in a hurry to get to Sibley before we got caught in a downpour... but we had to wait for the glue to vulcanize.
