Thank you for being patient with all of the emails and posts as we attempt to get organized. We've done heaps since our first organizing meeting, and we'd like to share some updates with you!

This is still the Grease Rag RIDE and Wrench, right?!
We have put a page on the right-hand side of the blog for the Group Ride portion of Grease Rag. Check out the routes and start time, and join us for a relaxed, social ride.
Skill-Shares and Open Shop
Our Winter Bike Maintenance session was such a success, that we wanted to continue sharing skills with each other in a slightly different format. We have put a page on the right-hand side of the blog for the skill-shares: please check it out for information about upcoming topics and dates. These are a great opportunity for free knowledge!
The skill-share will be concurrent with the open shop, so if you'd like to come in and use Grease Rag time for wrenching instead of participating in the skill-share, we encourage you to take advantage of the space!
Regular Organizing Meetings
Although we do a majority of our collaborating and planning online using the blog and the Google Group, it is also important for us to meet face-to-face once in awhile! We have put a page on the right-hand side of the blog for the Regular (monthly) Organizing Meetings. Send us your concerns, find out when and where we are meeting next, or come to a meeting! All WTFs are welcome.
Thank you to everyone that filled out our poll on how to address the Grease Rag audience. We decided on "WTF" for our mission statement:
Grease Rag’s mission is to encourage and empower WTF (Women Trans Femme) cyclists in a collaborative and fun learning environment through rides, discussions, shop nights and educational seminars in a safer space.
Thank you for your continued support,
