Grease Rag is able to provide free open shop events where you can bring in your bike and fix it yourself because of close relationships with our community partners. Our "community partners" are the bike spaces that host our 7 events a month. Working with these partners keeps the amount of overhead, like rent and wages, that Grease Rag has to pay down to a nice tidy sum of $0. THANK YOU, community partners! We would not be here without you.
Round-Up Your Spare Change for Grease Rag 6/26- 7/31
Once a year, we ask you, kind and wonderful people, to pick up that lost penny, empty your pocket change, and round up to the nearest dollar when you visit any of these five community partners, and make a donation to help replenish our operation budget.
We will have collection containers at our four locations, starting Saturday, June 29.

Grease Rag is Turning Five!
Save the Date: Saturday, July 12, at 5pm.
Grease Rag is turning 5 years old July 7, 2014. We have been doing what we do, providing fun events and inclusive bike spaces for WTF (women/ transgender/ femme) cyclists in the Twin Cities, for four years. To celebrate our community, we are going to have a birthday party at our genesis location, Sunrise Cyclery! Expect food, libations, and probably a go-around. EVERYONE is welcome, so please bring friends.
