Join us on July 5 for a discussion of Bicycle/Race, by Adonia Lugo, PhD. This new book explores issues of equity in biking, painting an unforgettable picture of Los Angeles - and the US - from the perspective of two wheels.
Bicycle/Race is a book of borderlands and intersections, a cautionary tale about the dangers of putting infrastructure before culture, 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 cofounding LA's hallmark open streets cycling event, CicLAvia, along the way. When she takes on racism in the world of national bicycle advocacy in DC, she finds her voice and heads back to LA to organize the movement for environmental justice in active transportation.
