Tuesday Video: Bikestravaganza

How fortunate are we that Bikestravaganza: Off The Chainring Tour is coming to town? Spokane is positioning itself well for improving bike infrastructure and there are so many bike events this month, the momentum is evident. But you can’t miss this next fun event.

On Monday, August 16th, 7:00-9:00pm at the Community Building, 35 W. Main, Joe Biel and Elly Blue are bringing their energetic traveling road show of bicycle talk, movies, zines, and transportation activism and advocacy. They will present short videos and a slideshow about Portland’s bike culture and infrastructure, followed by an interactive discussion of the future of transportation infrastructure and advocacy.

A panel of local Spokane movers and shakers with participants like Kitty Klitzke and Barb Chamberlain will talk about the amazing things happening locally for bicycling, and everyone is invited to join us in a discussion of the big bicycle issues of the day.

The event is open - everyone is welcome to attend and participate in the conversation. Microcosm Publishing will have a table of books, zines, and movies. Suggested donation is $3 to $10 sliding scale and the event is sponsored by the SpokeFest.

I hope to see you there as we need as many Spokane riders in attendance to speak up and talk about what we want to see in our city for cyclists.
