Bikeside Speaks! May 22nd, Bikerowave, 5pm
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:
- Winning with Data – Crowdsourcing & LA Bike Map: Mihai Peteu
- Sara Bond: Personalizing Hit & Run
- Jeremy Grant: Connecting LA with the Backbone Bikeway Network
- Enci Box: Moving LA with The Greensters
- Stephen Box: Changing the world with Cyclists’ Rights
- Ron Durgin: Every street is a People Street – Sustainable Streets
- and a special presentation on Bikerowave, and it’s incredible progress as a bike co-op.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.)
