Elly Blue of Taking the Lane has been traveling across the midwest recently, on a tour for her new project, Dinner and Bikes, with Joshua Ploeg, Joe Biel and Aaron Cynic.
Dinner & Bikes is a month-long tour of the central and northeastern U.S. in May, 2013. Our events bring people together to eat delicious food and get inspired about bicycle transportation.
A Dinner and Bikes evening includes a gourmet, vegan and gluten-free buffet dinner prepared by Joshua Ploeg, a presentation about transportation equity and the everyday bicycling movement by Elly Blue, and a near-complete excerpt from Aftermass, Joe Biel’s forthcoming documentary about the history of bicycling in Portland. The event is followed by a book signing with all three presenters, and some time to peruse our traveling bicycle and cooking themed bookshop.
The tour’s final stop will be in Chicago on Tuesday, June 4, at Heritage Bikes (they’re in Milwaukee tonight).
If you missed the tour, you can still get in on the bikes and food action with the Culinary Cyclist cookbook project on Kickstarter that Elly put together with Anna Brones.
