Love to Jamie McDonald

on November 4, 2011   comments 0

Welcome Home Solidago Riders!

Remember Jamie's dramatic and sudden health scare from last year?  Well, he is doing a lot better these days.  On Wednesday, November 2nd, Jamie went into the hospital for his last surgery.  Everything went great and he will be back at home on Friday.  He won't be back in the shop until November 15th or so.

The photo above is Jamie, holding a framed piece of birch bark that has been screen-printed with an outline of the Great Lakes.  The framed bark was a lovely handmade gift from the lovely Solidago Riders.  The Solidago Riders rode around the Great Lakes to raise money and awareness for sustainability projects.  These women are awesome, I suggest that you keep an eye on them because they are going places!

Sunrise Cyclery: Jamie McDonald

Hear what our wonderful sponsor, Jamie McDonald, says about the bicycle.

Jamie supported the Solidago Riders by loaning them Surly Long Haul Truckers for their trip.  Yes, Sunrise gave these riders five brand new bikes to make their trip possible.  Pretty sweet, huh?  Check out this video of Jamie talking about his mission to spread bike passion and knowledge.

Get well soon, Jamie!  I'm sending positive healing vibes in your direction!

Sunrise Workday- Smashing success!!

by

on September 30, 2011   comments 0

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of the fine, fine people that came to our workday at Sunrise last night.

I am so touched by the fact that people are willing to get together and get dirty and work hard for little more than some chili and beer and tunes on the radio.  Is this what community feels like?  I think so.

[gigya src="http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=24831034" width="400" flashvars="offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=/photos/24831034%40N08/sets/72157627662880421/show/&page_show_back_url=/photos/24831034%40N08/sets/72157627662880421/&set_id= 72157627662880421&jump_to=" allowFullScreen="true"]

Kathy, Kat, Kim, Ari, Eleonore, Esther, Carson, Nate, Mark, Alex, Jamie, JR, Shayne, Jessica, Sarah, Heidi... I hope I gave out enough high fives and hugs so you know that I appreciate all that you do for Sunrise/ Grease Rag.

YOU ARE AWESOME.

I hope you were able to look around the shop and see what a difference you've made, and how many hands make light work. (Although there was nothing easy about the tasks we took on!!)

If you didn't have a chance to come by last night, please stop by the shop and check it out!  It *SPARKLES*!

Help! Workday at Sunrise

by

on September 25, 2011   comments 0

This is a call out to all WTFs, Grease Rag'rs, allies, customers, humans, animals, vegetables or minerals that have benefited from Sunrise Cyclery's space.

Everything Grease Rag does is supported through Sunrise's donations of time, space, and staff hours.  We are very grateful for this, and when the rare occasion arises and we are asked to give back, we enthusiastically don our coveralls and roll up our sleeves, Rosie style.

Please join us for a workday at Sunrise Cyclery, Thursday, September 29th, 6-10PM. Tasks include cleaning, moving bikes, inventory, mopping, and all sorts of other sexy tasks.  Come for the whole time, come for an hour, just come and help!

We will be having another work day on Sunday, October 9th, 9AM-12PM.

Email greaseragmpls@gmail.com to let me know if you're coming.

Sincerest gratitude,

Grease Rag & Sunrise Cyclery
