REI provides outdoor enthusiasts with top-brand gear & clothing for camping, climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking and more. Since May is National Bike Month, Black Girls RUN! and REI encourage you to sign up for one of REI's bike shop services to help you bike the streets and trails. Visit REI, and select your local store. From there, you are able to select the schedule of classes being offered. Some of these classes are free! Anything from what to do if your bike has been sitting for a long time or how to check tire pressure? Check back to the schedule on a regular basis. You are also able to sign up for 'Gear Mail' with REI. This once a week email will keep you in the loop of community events, and how to be involved with REI.
If you ride a bicycle or interested in picking up the sport again, then you need these classes! Theses classes will teach you how to lube a chain, fix a flat tire in record time, and make other minor adjustments to your bicycle.
Black Girls not only run, but we bike too! REI has everything you need for paddling the James River, hiking the Appalachian Trail and more good times outdoors.
