Bike advocates are always emphasizing bicycle safety and usage throughout the Valley, especially in downtown Phoenix, and an event this weekend aims to increase awareness of bicycling and promote conversation and discussion about the environmentally-friendly form of transportation.
On Friday, December 2, the sixth annual Dinner & Bikes Tour will take over downtown Phoenix, offering bike enthusiasts and locals with the chance to participate in a traveling road show of bicycle inspiration and vegan food.
This event is a celebration of bicycling and it’s many health, mental and physical benefits.
From 7 pm to 10 pm, guests will be treated to a delicious vegan and gluten free buffet dinner provided by Joshua Ploeg, as well as films, discussions and presentations about numerous Groundswell movements. Elly Blue and Joe Biel will lead the conversation on this important topic.
Groundswell movements are incidences where community members demanded better bicycling conditions in their neighborhoods and made positive changes to their cities to better accommodate for bikers.
Later on in the evening, there will be a book signing and further opportunity to ask questions and discuss local issues pertaining to biking in Phoenix.
Seating is limited for this popular event, and admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door, including dinner. Proceeds from Dinner and Bikes go toward the advocacy of Phoenix Spokes People, a neighborhood group dedicated to making Phoenix a safer and friendly city for bicyclists.
