    Ongoing Events

    First and Third Sundays @ 5:00 - 7:00 pm
    Cville Community Bikes, 405 Avon St
    Women/Trans/Femme Bike Night
    Whether your ride needs help or you just want to learn some bike mechanics, if your gender doesn't align with normal masculinity: welcome to w/t/f night! This is for you! No one of masculine persuasion is excluded from this event, but we're committed to having some good queer fun, so disrespect will not fly. That means: no slurs, no intentional misgendering, no inappropriate questions, no transphobic (or homophobic or sexist, etc.) jokes... The usual masculinity is not the guest of honor here. It is not barred from entry, but it will be playing by our rules. 

    Wednesdays @ 7:00 pm
    AMF Keglers Lane - 335 Rivanna Plaza Dr., Charlottesville
    Rainbow Bowling
    All ages and skill levels welcome.  Just ask for the "Rainbow League" at the front desk, and they will tell you what lanes we are using.  $10 for three games.
