Transcript

The intersection of bicycles and social justice will be the focus of San Diego’s inaugural bike summit.

Bike advocates, community members and elected officials will gather Thursday at the Museum of Photographic Arts for three days of workshops and panels on strategies to improve bicycling in every community in the San Diego region. Organized by the San Diego Bike Coalition, the summit begins with a discussion on women in the bicycling community.

Adonia Lugo, an urban anthropologist and author of the book, “Bicycle/Race: Transportation, Culture and Resistance," is the summit’s keynote speaker. Other topics of discussion include: placemaking and open streets, climate action and complete streets, along with cross-border collaboration for bicycling.

Lugo and Michelle Luellen, education program manager with the San Diego County Bike Coalition, discuss equity and inclusion in bicycling Tuesday on Midday Edition.
