Dinner and Bikes: Detroit!
The annual Dinner and Bikes Tour, a multimedia roadshow of food and bicycle activism, will be putting on events in 27 cities in eleven states in the midwestern and northeast U.S. during National Bike Month in May. The tour is a call to action for communities around the U.S. to take the lead in growing the national bicycle movement.

The tour is coming to Detroit on May 8, 2013 from 7pm to 10pm at the Jam Handy building, 2900 E. Grand Blvd., thanks to the generous support of Mode Shift: Move Together and Midtown Detroit, Inc. The Wheelhouse Detroit Bike Shop will provide free Bike Valet service to all attendees arriving by bike.

More information can be found at www.dinnerandbikes.com and the event's Facebook page, Dinner and Bikes: Detroit!

The tour features writer Elly Blue, filmmaker Joe Biel, and chef Joshua Ploeg.

Attendees will enjoy a gourmet vegan and gluten-free buffet by Ploeg while participating in an interactive presentation about transportation equity by Blue and watching a near-complete excerpt from Biel's forthcoming documentary Aftermass, a history of bicycle activism in Portland. The tour is traveling with a food- and bicycle-themed pop-up bookstore. Authors will be available to chat and sign books after the event.

Joshua Ploeg is the traveling vegan chef. When not touring the world, he is a personal chef and delighter of secret cafe goers in Los Angeles. His adventure cookbook In Search of the Lost Taste is a smash hit, as is his controversial raw food cookbook, So Raw It's Downright Filthy.

Joe Biel is the author of brand new book Beyond the Music. He founded Microcosm Publishing in his bedroom closet 17 years ago and now publishes nonfiction books, zines, and movies through Microcosm and Cantankerous Titles. In his "spare time" he makes documentaries on empowering topics from punk to bicycling. On this tour, he'll be showing selections from Aftermass, a feature documentary about bicycle activism in Portland.

Elly Blue is the author of the newly released Everyday Bicycling: How to Ride a Bicycle for Transportation (Whatever your Lifestyle). She is the founder of Taking the Lane, a publisher of empowering books about unique aspects of cycling. Her writing has appeared in Grist, Bitch, BikePortland, Momentum, and the Portland Mercury, and her own blog. Her second book, Bikenomics, will come out in early 2014.

Past Dinner and Bikes tours have covered the west coast, the mountain states, and the southeastern U.S.
