Bikeside Speaks! Saturday, May 22 @ 5pm

Save the date! Saturday, May 22nd, 5pm Bikerowave (12255 Venice Blvd) will host Bikeside for Bikeside’s new bike talk series: Bikeside Speaks!

Cyclists, motorists, and everybody that rolls, hops, walks, slides, etc. is welcome, and we’ll have food and drink. 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:

* Mihai Peteu: Winning with Data – Crowdsourcing & LA Bike Map
* Sara Bond: Personalizing Hit & Run
* Jeremy Grant: Connecting LA with the Backbone Bikeway Network
* Enci: 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.

Alex Thompson will emcee, and 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!
