In partnership with Bike East Bay, we are co-hosting the Women Bike Book Club in 2017! Bike East Bay's Women Bike program enters its second year of bringing women and gender nonconforming folks together in social settings to share experiences and resources with each other.
All are invited to discuss biking, feminism, and the intersection of the two. Join us on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00pm. We'll focus on a different book or film each month, with a few guest speakers and activities along the way.
For August, we are reading Our Bodies, Our Bikes, edited by Elly Blue and April Streeter. Modeled after the classic women's health book "Our Bodies, Ourselves," the essays in this book are written by a diverse group of contributors and offer information and advice about the intersection of gender and biking. Topics range from "bike fit and clothing, to periods and childbirth, from media representation to gender presentation and reproductive rights," in a practical, friendly, down-to-earth manner. We'll discuss these subjects and anything you care to bring to the table!
Upcoming meetings of the Women Bike Book Club: August 10 and September 14 at the Golden Gate Branch (5606 San Pablo Ave).
Stay tuned for future titles and locations for the end of 2017!
