Dearest Grease Rag Ladies and Grease Rag Supporters,
Grease Rag started out as a fun, twice-a-month event for a few of us ladies to get together and familiarize ourselves with our bicycles. Over the past few months we have done everything from an instructional session, to intense wrenching sessions, to laid-back chats in the shop. We have built bikes, trued wheels, changed flat tires and overhauled headsets together.
Quite a few ladies have expressed how Grease Rag has given them confidence and even taught them a thing or two.. not to mention the added bonus of connecting with other awesome ladies that ride!
If we are able to positively influence our small group, don't we owe it to our sisters to expand our little event into something that has the potential to create a safe space for a larger community? We think so! Grease Rag is ready to evolve, and we need you.

Are you ready to STUPOR BOWL??!
A group of us are meeting up with the Grease Pit crowd at the Grease Pit at 11am on Saturday, February 6th. We will ride over to the race start from there.
I would love it if some Grease Rag ladies came out and we rode up to the race start in a mass of rowdy grrls!! We'll be wearing our red bandannas/ grease rags, and it would be cool if you would too! If you are meeting other people or racing with others, don't worry about sticking to our group. Just be sure to give a holla if you see us!
Can't wait to see you all there! I'll be the one with the red bandanna and Grease Rag flyers. =]
