A Phew Philly Reminders

This Wednesday is dinner at FriSatSun that will raise funds for GearingUp! They are going to donate 30% of the proceeds of the April 21st to the ladies of this great program. Make your reservation now. I hear the cool people are going between 6:30 and 8:30.

If you can not make it out to the nights mentioned above, you could always donate to Gearing Up and keep this program going strong.

If you not familiar with what is going on with the ladies of Gearing Up!, check it out below and see what you can do to help.

Gearing Up is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide women in transition from drug and alcohol addiction, domestic violence, and/or homelessness with the skills, equipment, and guidance needed to safely ride a bicycle for exercise, transportation, and personal growth.
Many women in transition are formerly homeless, have histories of abuse and trauma as kids and/or as adults, have used drugs and/or alcohol as a way to cope with painful experiences, have limited education levels, some have psychiatric and medical problems, and all are attempting to learn how to live sober life with purpose and meaning.
While in transition, bicycling offers a mode of transportation, opportunities for social connectedness and employment, as well as countless psychological and physical health benefits. A primary goal of Gearing Up is to provide women with regular coaching, mentoring, and support to adapt healthy lifestyle changes, promote personal growth, and use biking for transportation.

This Friday is the last day that you can drop your $10 on your pre-reg for the “Maypril” Fools race thrown by the good folks at RELoad bags. If you get your cash in by this Friday, you will be guaranteed a shirt and poster on the day of the event. If not…you are SOL. This is going to be a great ride this year, and is not to be missed at all. I maybe late, but I will be there and you should be as well.

On the night after you submit your pre-reg for RELoad, you can join Bryan and the crew at the Bicycle Revolutions 4th anniversary party. Who would have thunk they would have made it that long? Knowing Bryan’s drive, I knew it and I am so happy for He and Heather.

Bryan says…Please join us on Saturday, April 24 at 7:00 for a shindig of epic proportions. There will be drinks of a wide variety – beer, booze type concoctions, and of course non-alcoholic options. We will have snacky food for you to munch on as well. You didn’t hear it from me but there might be cake too, like extra special, fancy cake. Just saying . . . There will also be art from the always fabulous Abi Galooza. I have no idea what he is planning, but he is rad so I am sure it will rock.

We will be partying until midnight or when the alcohol runs out. You can find us at 712 South 4th Street, between Bainbridge and Monroe. Please, remember to drink responsibly, no drinking and riding, and no complaining about hangovers. See you there!

That is a bunch of stuff that you have to do this week, but you are big boys and girls, you can get it done!
