I want to say THANK YOU to all of you who showed up and kicked ass at Babes in Bikeland. I think everyone who routinely comes to Grease Rag was there and did really well in the race. It was way more fun than my trepidation had let me expect and I will definitely be doing more Alley Cats (Mario is holding the NO NAME on Sunday, Oct. 4th, which is also the night before we leave for Mexico. I will be riding it if anyone else is interested. NO NAMES are free for women!) Babes was so awesome because it brought out a lot of new riders. The atmosphere was for the most part so supportive and not as "at your throat" competitive as I was expecting, which was a relief. The results have not been posted on the babesinbikeland.com site yet, but they will be soon. Kayla also said she's going to post Grease Rag info. for us on the site (will someone please twist her arm to come out for the 1st and hang out with us? Chelsea, too!) We handed out about 175 fliers and a few poster for Grease Rag at the Babes event, and hopefully our Oct. 1st event will be huge! I will be there for the last time and would love to see all of you that night- Be there or be square. If you have any comments or maybe some things you really like or had trouble with during Babes in Bikeland, write a comment here and we'll share them with the Babes administrators!
We officially have a schedule of events for the rest of 2009- check out our fliers around town (if you would like to take some and hand them out or put them up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org)
11/19- Winter Maintenance Class
Depending on class attendance,
these events may be postponed until Spring '10.
Grease Rag is this Thursday, August 20th at 7pm.
Movie has not worked out so well, so it seems like a no-go. If we want, though, we can always hit the bars or someone's back yard!
The Square Lake Film Festival is coming up on Saturday the 15th! Not only is this exciting because it's a really big biking event, the group ride out on Saturday morning is probably the first long ride for many people. Before you leave your house on Saturday morning, or any morning for that matter, and ride off into the sunrise or sunset, here are some things that you should probably always have on you whether you're riding 2 miles or 200 miles.
This list is based on what I personally carry in my bag or have in the past wished I had when the time came to fix a flat on the side of the road.
Here we go again! I have the movie '2 Seconds' and we're ready to go!
Meet for ride at Sunrise Cyclery @7pm
7:45pm Get out your wrenches!
9pm or after dark- "2 Seconds" in either the parking lot on the projector OR inside on the big screen TV.
See you there!
