BIPOC History Ride

San Diego BIPOC History Tour by Bike
Limited to 10 spots - Masks Required

Join us for a BikeSD hosted, San Diego BIPOC History Ride on September 12th at 9:00 a.m. You can ride with members of BikeSD through San Diego, visiting historic spaces and significant sites--some of which may be familiar, and some of which you may have passed a hundred times without knowing they were there. These guides will help you navigate the city, following the route established for the San Diego Design Week BIPOC History Ride.  They aren't tour guides, just local cyclists who have volunteered to guide this group ride.   Riders will still rely on the Design Week programming for information.

BikeSD Book Club

Bicycle / Race

We invite you to join us in reading and discussing Bicycle/Race - Transportation, Culture & Resistance by Adonia E. Lugo, Phd.

Summary: Bicycle / Race paints an unforgettable picture of Los Angeles―and the United States―from the perspective of two wheels. This is a book of borderlands and intersections, a cautionary tale about the dangers of putting infrastructure before culture, and 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 co-founding Los Angeles's hallmark open streets cycling event, CicLAvia, along the way. When she takes on racism in the world of national bicycle advocacy in Washington, DC, she finds her voice and heads back to LA to organize the movement for environmental justice in active transportation.

In the tradition of City of Quartz, this book will forever change the way you see Los Angeles, race and class in the United States, and the streets and people around you wherever you live.

The plan is to meet several Sunday evenings on Google Meet to discuss 30-page sections of the book. The discussion will be a safe place to explore thoughts and ideas as we reckon with the topics of race and environmental justice dealt with in the book. There is no pressure to speak up and you won't be called on, we're a friendly bunch. You can request to join the google calendar event below or request an invite via email. You may also contact one of our members for an invite if you prefer.

It is recommended that participants read the first two chapters of the book before the first meeting.

First meeting will take place Sunday September 13th at 4pm
