Dinner & Bikes

dinnerandbikes2Join us at Sundance Books & Music on June 8 for an evening of inspirational storytelling about bicycle culture and delicious food, presented by Elly Blue, Joe Biel, and Joshua Ploeg. This is their sixth annual U.S. tour bringing people together to eat delicious food and get inspired about bicycle transportation.

As the audience arrives, they serve themselves from chef Joshua Ploeg’s seven-course gourmet vegan and gluten-free buffet spread. While the audience is eating, local advocates discuss their work and local issues and initiatives.

Then, Elly Blue and Joe Biel co-present a new interactive discussion and presentation including eight short films about Groundswell movements—incidences where people demand better neighborhood conditions and successfully implement them. Stories include how Reading, PA came to be 13th on the East Coast for bike commuting without any advocacy or government spending; former gang members riding bikes to raise awareness about gang violence; Mexico City’s superhero of the streets, Peatonito; the story of the League of American Bicyclists’ equity council; how the City of Portland’s Sunday Parkways worked as a response to gentrification; and how cyclists are representing themselves and creating their own voices all over the world.

Throughout the evening there are plenty of opportunities for discussion, questions, and browsing the Microcosm pop-up book and t-shirt store.

Pre-sale tickets are $20 through Paypal or $25 at the door the day of the event.

Bike Swap Coming in May!

This year’s Bike Swap—one of our most-anticipated events—will accompany Reno Riverfest on Saturday, May 7!

bikeswap

We’ll have great deals on good-as-new, used, and vintage bikes. Guest vendors will be selling more bikes, parts, and cycling accoutrements. Even if you aren’t interested in buying a bike, browsing the Bike Swap can be lots of fun for the family or pack of pals.

Got a bike or three you’d like to sell? We’ll do it for you while you spend the day at the festival or relax at home. Drop off your bike at our shop on 4th St starting April 20, or at the Bike Swap between 8am and 10am on May 7. The 20% consignment fee will benefit Reno Bike Project’s education, advocacy, and outreach programs.

Interested in being a vendor at the event? If you’re a shop, cycling club, or just have too much bike stuff in the garage, we’d love to have you there. Participation is free for vendors who already have a City of Reno business license! Get in touch and we’ll put you on the list.

Please contact Genevieve Parker with any questions.
