Work day cancelled - rain enemy #1 to co-op!

The rain makes it difficult for us to work both outside and inside because we have a bit of a flooding problem in the back room. Thus, we're postponing our manual labor fun - maybe for next weekend. We'll updated when we fix a date!

Here's hoping you find something nice & dry to occupy yourself today.

Critical mass this Friday!

Oops for got about critical mass!
But, this Friday, we'll be at the shop (1211 28th st s) hanging out. Be ready to ride out at 7. Slow pace, no set route, etc etc. Unfortunately, no circular bikes either.

Work Day this Sunday at 2:00!

This Sunday we're going to put down the wrenches and chain whips in favor of hammers and shovels, and work on beautifying Bici's shop! We have a garden mess happening outside that we hope to clear out, a bench that needs building, and a back room of doom. Come one come all and help us get this stuff done! We'll provide food stuffs and post work libations.

Sunday, August 30, 2:00 - 7:00 @ Bici HQ. Bring your tools!

Big Thanks and Big Love

Well the Flirty 30 was equal parts exciting, horrifying, unbelievable, fun, draining, and drunken. Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone who came out to race and/or party. I especially want to thank those few brave men who came out with their skirts and showed us ladies what it's all about. Also, thanks to all our fabulous sponsors: Green Guru, Recycled Accessories, Headset, Crestwood Coffee Company, Banjo Brothers, Some New Trend, Chrome, and Bikeskirt. And a big thanks to PBR for supporting the Sunday Night Skid, who then shared their beer-rific leftovers with us. Hooray!

For those of you who don't know, Rebecca Barton got in an accident while racing and ended up with a serious head injury. She is still in critical condition at the hospital, so please keep her in your thoughts. We all hope for a speedy and complete recovery. Unfortunately, she wasn't wearing a helmet. We've decided to make helmets mandatory for all future events; I just wish that it wasn't an accident that prompted us to make such a rule.

Please wear your helmet folks!

Volunteers needed for Flirty 30 Alleycat this Saturday!

We have the prizes, we have the stops, we have the racers, and we have tons of FREE PBR!
It's going to be a hell of a party, that's for sure.
But one thing we don't have is enough volunteers to run the stops! If you'd like to help out, then given Alan a shout:

Thanks and see you all on Saturday!

Oh! And...

A chance to help out

This is from Birmingham's infamous DirtDog and his cycling group email. If you can come out and help, please do. I can't imagine life without a bike, and don't think anyone else should.


We could really use some help from local cyclists next Friday, August 7th. At the Lakeshore Foundation, we'll be helping U.S. Veterans that lost their sight in the service enjoy riding a bike again. This is an event called Operation Night Vision, and Steve Fair helps out every year. He's really short on volunteers this time and if any of you are willing to take a day to help out, we'd be eternally grateful.

We're looking for both strong riders willing to captain tandem bikes and also for people willing to assist the veterans as needed with getting on and off the bikes. Its an all day event, but there are two shifts (9-12 and 1-4) if you can't stay all day. Any time you are willing to give is greatly appreciated.

If you're interested or know someone that would be, please let me know! Its an incredible experience and one neither you or the soldiers will soon forget.........
