Vehicular Cycling Recap
Weather and a birthday celebration made for a perfect night as we looked over some lane position diagrams and rode as a group throughout the neighborhood. The best part of the evening was asserting our presence on Lake Street as we cruised back to Sunrise. Read on for a recap of this event!
Facilitated by Nickel
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.
Certified LCI and skill-share facilitator, her "Best biking story" is really worth the read!
Leader of the WOW ride, I hope people ask about her "training plan" because I am really curious
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!
One of the blogs I follow is Let's Go Ride a Bike. They have a cool contest running from May 17th through July 18th. You complete a series of challenges that are very doable and promote cycling, and you are entered into a drawing for a Batavus BuB! Get on it, WTFs!
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. =]
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.
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.
