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.
