Bicycle/ Race with Dr. Adonia Lugo:

  • Sam Bonds Brewing 540 East 8th Avenue Eugene, OR, 97401 United States (map)

Join LiveMove and Dr. Adonia Lugo to discuss her upcoming book:
“Bicycle/Race: Transportation, Culture, and Resistance”. 

"Bicycle / Race paints an unforgettable picture of Los Angeles—and the United States—from the perspective of two wheels. This is a book of borderlands and intersections, a cautionary tale about the dangers of putting infrastructure before culture, and a coming-of-age story about power and identity. The colonial history of southern California is interwoven through Adonia Lugo's story of growing up Chicana in Orange County, becoming a bicycle anthropologist, and co-founding Los Angeles's hallmark open streets cycling event, CicLAvia, along the way. When she takes on racism in the world of national bicycle advocacy in Washington, DC, she finds her voice and heads back to LA to organize the movement for environmental justice in active transportation."

There will be a presentation Wednesday May 9th from 6-8pm at Sam Bond’s Foundry.

Additionally, there will be a community ride Thursday May 10th.
