Dinner & Bikes: bikenomics, vegan food and movies

Join Bike Walk Town for a great evening of Dinner and Bikes! Advanced tickets are for sale at Eventbrite, $25. Limited to 30.

The fourth annual Dinner & Bikes is a month-long tour of the U.S. East Coast in June, 2014, and we are pretty excited that the tour is swinging by Morristown! The evening starts off with 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. Bike Walk Town will talk about their work promoting cycling in Morristown and then 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. Joshua Ploeg is the the traveling vegan chef. When not touring the world, he is a personal chef and delighter of secret cafe goers in Los Angeles. This tour celebrates the release of his newest title, This Ain't No Picnic: Your Punk Rock Vegan Cookbook. He lives in California.

Joe Biel is the maker of the documentary feature Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland. He is also the author of several books, including Beyond the Music. He founded Microcosm Publishing in his bedroom closet 17 years ago and now publishes nonfiction books, zines, and movies. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

Elly Blue will be talking on tour about her new book, Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy. She is also the author of Everyday Bicycling: How to Ride a Bicycle for Transportation (Whatever your Lifestyle). When she isn't writing, she publishes books and zines about all aspects of bicycle transportation. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

Aaron Cynic is an independent journalist and activist from Chicago. He writes regularly for Chicagoist and the Diatribe Media collective. His work has also appeared on Shareable, Truthout, Z Magazine and in numerous other publications and zines. When he isn't documenting Dinner and Bikes through blogging, audio, video, and photos, he'll be driving the van, managing our traveling bookstore, and smiling a lot.

Many thanks to Marty's Reliable Cycle, world's best bike shop, for hosting!
