Bikey Book Club

July 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

The Bikey Book Club met this week to begin discussion of Bicycle/Race: Transportation, Culture, & Resistance by Adonia E. Lugo, PhD. We watched a video interview of the author to better understand why she wrote the book and what she is hoping to accomplish. She expands on what traditional, predominantly White, middle class, bicycle advocates normally consider street safety from just safety from cars to safety from police, harassment, gentrification and other issues surrounding transportation issues. She distinguishes between the needs of people, mostly poor and predominantly Black and Brown who must ride bikes or walk and others who want the choice of riding a bike or living in a walkable community. And she explains why so many people quit riding bikes in favor of driving as soon as they can afford to. The book opened my eyes to some painful truths about our transportation system

At our July 22nd session, we’ll continue discussing this book.
