Grease Rag Presents: 13th Annual Winter Skill Share & Gear Swap
Grease Rag Ride & Wrench is a community that encourages and empowers FTW (Femme/Trans/Women, Non-binary, Two-spirit) cyclists in a collaborative and fun learning environment through rides, discussions, shop nights and educational seminars in a safer space. Check out our calendar of events and blog posts here: https://greaserag.org/
If you identify as FTW, join our FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/greaserag/ *please answer the questions. For 13 years now, Grease Rag has been hosting a Winter Skill Share & Gear Swap to share our collective knowledge on how to commute safely during the coldest, more challenging road conditions time of year. We offer a free gear swap at the event to allow people to have access to cycling gear that tend to not be financially accessible to everyone. Grease Rag’s WSS 2021 will be hosted at the wonderful Solcana Fitness in South Minneapolis. We will be requiring everyone to wear masks during the event. There will be sessions on route handling, and bike maintenance outside the gym; and then a session on what to wear, self care, and route planning inside the gym with the gym’s garage door open to allow max air ventilation. We will have warm food and drinks available, and will provide a sneak peek of “what to wear” before the event so people can layer properly. The event itself will be on Sunday November 7th from 2:30pm to 6:30pm. Our breakout sessions will be as follows:
3:00pm-3:45pm Handling and maintenance outside workshops; Indoor session (Route Planning, Safety, What to wear)
4:15pm – 5:00pm Handling and maintenance outside workshops; Indoor session (Route Planning, Safety, What to wear)
Gear Swap will follow/end the event. A raffle will be held during lunch between sessions. Email email@example.com…
