Grease Rag event at Sunrise Cyclery. If you are not familiar with Grease Rag, their 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 space.
My take on Grease Rag is that it is a good place for women to learn bike repair skills and make contacts in the bike community without the testosterone that sometimes comes with the cycling scene. Being a self-sufficient rider makes one a lot more confident and willing to venture further afield, and prevents problems as well. So what's not to like about that?
Grease Rag has a blog that can be found here and they also listed on my site in the "Friends" feed at the right of my page as well. If you are a WTF and need to get some new tires mounted, want to learn to change a flat or have more ambitious maintenance plans, this would be a great place to start!
