What? Who? Why? Where/ When?!
ALLLL the juicy details are on the Grease Rag blog

This is a party to celebrate the release of the Minneapolis Presents
calendar. The calendar features local women involved in the cycling
community here in Minneapolis. All of the proceeds will benefit the
Grease Rag Ride & Wrench, a local group offering free shop time and
events for women/ trans/ femme (WTF) cyclists.
Calendars will be available at the part for $15, cash or check. There
will be FREE BEER, music by a local WTF DJ Loveless Aphrodite, and other
We are a group of four local female cyclists, and we are excited to
announce a project we developed to support programs that encourage and
facilitate women’s cycling. Our project, Minneapolis Presents, is a
14-month calendar featuring local women who are active in various
cycling-themed events and projects in the Twin Cities, with proceeds to
benefit Grease Rag, a bi-weekly group ride and open workshop targeting
female cyclists. Grease Rag Ride & Wrench
Grease Rag’s mission is to encourage and empower women/ trans/ femme
(WTF) cyclists in a collaborative and fun learning environment through
rides, discussions, shop nights and educational seminars in a safer
Rag is a group of passionate volunteers that would like to get more
people riding their bikes, especially WTF cyclists. Sunrise Cyclery
currently donates everything that Grease Rag uses. It would be nice to
be able to pay for our own photocopies and to have some money to fund
more events and programs- you can support us by buying a calendar! It's
a win-win. You get a calendar full of proud, local, beautiful WTFs, we
get some cash to help spread the word about what we are doing.
Buy a calendar!!
In addition to being available at the party this Friday, calendars are available online
. If you buy online you have to pay shipping, so if you live in town why wouldn't
you support a local bike shop? As you know- Sunrise Cyclery
is our sponsor and Grease Rag would not exist without their generous
donations of space, time, expertise, and friendship. Please consider
buying a calendar from Sunrise Cyclery, located at Bryant Ave. and Lake
St. in Uptown.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me, or ask me in person at the party!
Keep the rubber side down!
