Women & Bikes & Books

Join Us Every 1st Thursday for the Women Bike Book Club

In partnership with Bike East Bay, we are co-hosting the Women Bike Book Club! Bike East Bay's Women Bike program enters its third year of bringing women, femme, trans, and gender nonconforming folks together in social settings to share experiences and resources with each other.

All are invited to discuss biking, books, and feminism at the Women Bike Book Club. Join us on the first Thursday of each month at 6:00pm at the Golden Gate Branch (5606 San Pablo Ave). We'll focus on a different book, film, or topic each month, with a few guest speakers and activities along the way. Here is a line-up for the next few months:

MARCH 1: Women's History Month selection: "Around the World on Two Wheels: Annie Londonderry's Extraordinary Ride," by Peter Zheutlin

APRIL 5: It's National Poetry Month! Write bike-hu with us (haiku about bikes, of course) and share a poem you like about bikes

MAY 3: Podcasts, blogs & social media mavens: Share your favorite bike-centric podcasts, articles, comics, Instagram accounts, and whatever else has caught your eye or tickled your fancy lately.

JUNE 7: Get inspired reading "Rad American Women A-Z," by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl

JULY 5: Examine bike issues from the perspective of bicycle anthropologist & co-founder of LA's CicLAvia, Dr. Adonia Lugo, in her new book, "Bicycle/Race: Transportation, Culture, and Resistance"
