The tour

The fourth annual Dinner & Bikes is a month-long tour of the U.S. East Coast in June, 2014. Our events 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 gourmet vegan and gluten-free buffet spread. While eating, Joe Biel plays a series of his short films about bicycle activism and culture—his newest shorts focus on the family bicycling movement. Then local advocates and sponsors have a chance to get up and talk about their work promoting cycling. Elly Blue takes the stage and gives a presentation about Bikenomics, showing the audience how to make a compelling economic case for bicycling, equity, and transportation activism. At the end there is a chance for questions, discussion, and browsing the Microcosm pop-up book and t-shirt store.
