Curious about starting a cooperative business? Interested in finding out what kind of resources and support for co-ops is being built in Baltimore City? Just want to hang out and geek out about building democratic workplaces? Then swing by this cooperative info night & happy hour, organized by BRED, and hosted by Red Emma’s at 30 W. North Ave.
BRED will have cooperative experts on hand from 6-9pm to answer your questions, or to just chat about cooperatives—and this will be happening on a monthly basis, with special theme nights focusing on different aspects of cooperative business development.
As some of you may, or may not, know, here at BBW we are a dealer of Brompton Bicycles.
Brompton engineers folding bikes of the most superb quality, with a multitude of potential uses and applications. They are a wonderfully reliable option for commuting, traveling (airplane, train, bus, etc), and can even be customized for touring, or chic aesthetic play.
Brompton has already embarked on their newest adventure, the #OnTheRoad tour, from June 12th - July 8th. They will be venturing through the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and down the East Coast posting up at bike shops and offering their bicycles up for 1-day rentals. This is a great opportunity for curious kittens (read: cyclists) to get their paws on a Brompton bike for a whole day, for free, to see if they like the bikes. Or they can investigate and satiate their questions via the Brompton staff that will be available at the event!
General information about Brompton’s #OnTheRoad tour can be found here.
They will have a table/tent setup at BBW this week on Tuesday June 21st and Wednesday June 22nd. They will have 12 bikes available to rent FOR FREE for one whole day. Unfortunately all 12 bikes have already been reserved as of this morning. HOWEVER, we house a wide variety of Brompton bikes, components, and accessories in the shop that folks can investigate and test-ride.
In addition to hosting Brompton at the BBW shop for two days, we have organized an easy-paced, no drop, group ride for Brompton renters, and any other interested cyclists. This ride will be on Tuesday June 21st and will promptly leave from the shop (1813 Falls Road) at 5:30pm.
Drop on by and see what all the buzz is about!
In honor of Memorial Day, the shop will be closed Monday, May 30th. So get your bike shopping in on Sunday and have a great long weekend.
The Tuesday Night Time Trial is a FREE time trial event held Tuesday nights through the Spring and Summer. The TNTT is the perfect opportunity to track your progress through the season. The Time Trial meets Tuesday nights at the Butler Fire Department at 6pm. The 14 mile loop is marked but takes place on an open road, so please follow all rules of the road.
