Dinner+Bikes with Elly Blue Rolls Through Texas for Bike Month

dinnerandbikes2BikeTexas is delighted to announce that we and other groups around Texas will be hosting Elly Blue, Joshua Ploeg, and Joe Biel on their Dinner+Bikes tour in May!

Elly Blue is the author of Everyday Bicycling and Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy, both excellent resources and fun reads. She's also written for many blogs and magazines, and is very engaging and open on social media. We've heard from her at the National Bike Summit and are looking forward to meeting her in person!

Update from the Dinner and Bikes blog:

For 2015, Elly Blue and Joe Biel co-present a new slide, lecture, and short film presentation about Groundswell movements, incidences where people demand better neighborhood conditions and successfully implemented them. Some of the brand new short films include the story of former gang members in Portland’s historic Black neighborhoods who organized Take Back The Streets bike rides to raise awareness around gang violence and are now organizing a refuge house, James Rohas’ workshops of new views on city planning models, a look at the formation of the equity council of the League of American Bicyclists, how the City of Portland’s Sunday Parkways program was created as a way to engage and discuss gentrification and racism for neighbors in the streets, and the city of Reading, PA’s application of Bikenomics principles for city development after having the 10th highest bicycle mode split in the Northeast despite a lack of infrastructure or even a bike shop in the city proper.
