  • Mountain to Mountain: Book Launch & Fundraiser with Shannon Galpin

    Redbeard Bikes is excited to host an evening with Shannon Galpin, author of "Mountain to Mountain: A Journey of Adventure and Activism for the Women of Afghanistan." The book comes out from St. Martin's Press this Tuesday!

    When: Friday, 9/19, 6-9pm
    Where: Redbeard Bikes, 69 Jay Street


    In 2006, Shannon founded Mountain 2 Mountain, a nonprofit that works with women and girls in conflict zones. She is focused on supporting Afghan women who want to ride bikes.

    Shannon is also the producer of "Afghan Cycles," the Let Media documentary about the Afghan National Women’s Cycling Team (due to premier in 2015.

    Shannon will speak about her experiences in Afghanistan, show bits of "Afghan Cycles," and sign copies of her memoir, "Mountain to Mountain."

    We met Shannon this summer, when she spoke at the Liv/Giant 2015 product launch. We found her story incredibly compelling, so we were honored when she asked us to host a book launch party for her.

    The event is free and open to the public; this is your only chance to see Shannon in New York City (aside from the Harvard Club).

    Check out this video where she speaks about her work. Liv/Giant donated 50 bicycles to the Afghan Women's Cycling Team.

    Cycling giant Marianne Vos praised Shannon's memoir: "[Shannon Galpin] utilizes her unique position as a western woman to immerse herself in Afghan culture. She had the courage to leave everything behind and use the bike to as a tool to lead a physical and political movement - a way towards freedom for the women of Afghanistan."

  • Kissena Velodrome - Twilight Track Series & NYS Track Championships

    Track races are magical. They remind me of ballet - the cyclists appear graceful and poised - but you know they are working so hard.

    This Wednesday night (8/27) is the last race in the Twilight Series out at the Kissena Velodrome in Queens.

  • This week's rides

    We've been quite lucky with weather thus far -- Sundays have been by and large sunny!
    But after last Sunday's rain, we realized we should clarify: rain the morning of the ride cancels the ride. That said, if it's just drizzling/looks like it might clear up, come on out! In these cases we may revise the route (i.e. do laps in Prospect Park instead of going up to River Road), but we will ride!
    Upcoming rides:
    • One of our customers, Guy, has organized a ride to Nyack happening this Saturday. Departure at 7:15 AM from DUMBO or 8 AM from Fairway on the Upper West Side. If you'd like to join, please reply to this thread.
    • Our women's ride is this (and every) Thursday, meet at 8:30 PM at Grand Army Plaza.
    • Sunday morning shop ride to River Road, meet at 7:15 AM at the shop.
    • We're planning a special ride for Saturday, August 30th, to support the Afghan Women's National Cycling Team. Stay tuned for details.
    Got any fun rides planned? We encourage you to share them.
