Bikeside Speaks! May 22nd, Bikerowave, 5pm

By Alex Thompson

Save the date! Saturday, May 22nd, Bikerowave (12255 Venice Blvd) will host Bikeside for Bikeside’s new bike talk series: Bikeside Speaks! All comers are welcome, and we’ll have food and drink till I eat all the pizza. Afterward we’ll have a film screening, the second of it’s kind at Bikerowave.

Bikeside Speaks is a lightning round of talks on current projects in bike activism, each of them followed by Q&A. We’ll also have several heavy hitters giving talks on their interface with cycling, to be announced! Here’s part of the lineup:

I’ll emcee, and I may even give a short talk on the Bike Plan.

This is an easy way to see what Bikeside and our collaborators are up to, and to get involved.  Come out and get engaged!

If you’d like to help out, email me at and we’ll plug you in.

(please note, Bikerowave will be closing earlier than usual in order to accommodate Bikeside.  Stands will be available outside for emergency repairs only.)

  1. Is there the possibility of recording the event? I will not be in Los Angeles until a few days later… Sounds like it is going to really fun, informative, and inspiring! Thanks for your work and dedication.

  2. Ditto what Severin asked! I’ll also be out of town on the 22nd, but would love to hear what was said. Especially the parts about cyclist rights, the backbone network, and sustainable streets.

  3. A great gathering. Might want to correct “it’s” to “its” here, on FB and other materials.

  4. We’ll be filming it, and then chopping it up and making all the talks available on YouTube or Vimeo.

    JO – yeah, I screw those up all the time.
