Event

Dinner + Bikes + Amarillo
The fifth annual Dinner & Bikes is a month-long tour of the U.S. to bring people together to eat delicious food and get inspired about bicycle transportation.

Here's what happens at a Dinner and Bikes event:

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 over the first fifteen minutes.

Then, for 2015, Elly Blue and Joe Biel co-present a new slide, lecture, and short film presentation about Groundswell movements, incidences where people demand better neighborhood conditions and successfully implemented them. Some of the brand new short films include the story of former gang members in Portland's historic Black neighborhoods who organized Take Back The Streets bike rides to raise awareness around gang violence and are now organizing a refuge house, James Rohas' workshops of new views on city planning models, a look at the formation of the equity council of the League of American Bicyclists, how the City of Portland's Sunday Parkways program was created as a way to engage and discuss gentrification and racism for neighbors in the streets, and the city of Reading, PA's application of Bikenomics principles for city development after having the 10th highest bicycle mode split in the Northeast despite a lack of infrastructure or even a bike shop in the city proper.

At the end there is a chance for twenty minutes of questions, discussion, and browsing the Microcosm pop-up book and t-shirt store. We wind down and pack up around 9 PM and everyone is tucked away in bed by 10 or creating an off-site after party!
