    Pastry Ride

    Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition and Perennial Cycle are partnering to throw one heck of a pastry ride in honor of Women and Gender Non-Conforming (WGNC) Day for Bike Month! The Coalition is rolling out a heap of events for WGNC's that day, and this is the kick-off.

    We will meet up at Perennial Cycle and roll out for a nice, easy, muppet-paced ride. We'll head to a surprise location, a pastry shop that is Women-Trans-Femme owned and end the ride with a fix a flat tutorial!

    This ride is focused on WGNC's, but is family friendly so partners and children are welcome.

    Bike Camping 101 Skill Share

    Beginner-friendly! This event is for WTF & GNC* folks ONLY!

    Hosted and organized by Grease Rag volunteer Julia Winkles. Julia uses she/her/hers pronouns, and has oodles of bike camping and touring experience! Julia will focus on budget-friendly tips and gear, and how to just get out there and DO it!

    This skill share is meant to pump you up and provide some space to swap tips about what works and doesn't work for YOU. Maybe you have a lot of camping experience, but no biking experience? You've ridden a bike a bunch, but have never camped? You want to get into both this summer? This should get you rolling!

    We will be providing some fun giveaways, light snacks and refreshments, and we welcome you to bring whatever you need to take care of yourself. (A sandwich? Knitting? Notebook?)

    This event is taking place at the Uptown Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Community space at 514 Lowry Ave NE, Minneapolis, 55418.

    Like all Grease Rag events, this event is FREE, ENCOURAGING, and a SAFER SPACE**

    *Thank you for respecting the space. Women, Transgender, Femme, and Gender Non-Conforming folks are welcome!
