Dinner and Bikes Monday: Advice and Inspiration for Transforming Richmond

13 Jun


Elly Blue, a former writer for Grist, author of Bikenomics, and Portland-based bicycle advocate, will be visiting Richmond on Monday.  Here’s an RVA News piece about Blue and the event, which she describes as follows: “I’m going to talk about the power of people doing activism in the streets with bicycles. I’m going to talk about the different political strategies for making changes happen for bicycling, with bicycling.”

She’ll be at the Robinson Theater (2903 Q Street) on Monday, June 16th at 7:00 PM.  The event is officially promoted as “Dinner and Bikes,” but my understanding is that tickets for the dinner part are sold out.  Tickets for the presentation ($5) are still available here.

To get warmed up you can also go to filmmaker Joe Biel’s documentary Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland on Sunday 6/15, 8 pm, at the Scott’s Addition (Summit Avenue) Lamplighter.  Check out the trailer here.
