Why Bikes? – Feminism, you, and the mighty bicycle machine

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

University of Minnesota Duluth Campus, Kirby Student Center 268,    Noon-1:00

Sadie Sigford of the Bike Cave Collective will be talking about bike culture, how it has traditionally excluded women but how women are now defining their space within it, why bikes are important and why they are just awesome!

Following this Sadie will go over common bike problems and demonstrate how to do maintenance on your own two-wheeled bicycle machine.

Hosted by the Women’s Resource and Action Center and the University of Minnesota Duluth Women’s Studies Department.

BTW, last night, the city council voted UNANIMOUSLY to reconstruct and repair streets in the future in a more bicyclist-friendly manner. Bikes lanes on Duluth's streets, YEAH.

Bike culture has traditionally excluded women?  Where do people come up with this shit?

From women working to create their space in the world of bicycle culture of course!

This isn't feminist in the least, but there's nothing sexier than a chick on an old steel frame ten speed.

You can help decide which roads should include bike lanes at one of six public meetings that will be held April-May. Go to www.fitcityduluth.com/bike to learn more!
