We’re heading out on tour next week. For the entire month of September, we’ll be driving around the western United States. Joe will show his inspiring short bike films, Joshua will serve up equally inspiring vegan food, and I’ll be talking about the bicycle economy. We’ll have books, zines, and movies for sale, a sort of traveling indie bookstore with a very niche market.
Joe and I did something like this last year, without the food. The best part was meeting people all over the country and seeing the different ways that bicycle scenes are thriving and struggling in different places. It did make me feel less cynical.
I’ll be blogging for Grist the whole way, tweeting, taking as many photos as I can, and hoping to meet a lot of you in person.
