California, the Dreaming and the Dead
One Saturday last April, my family made a pilgrimage to two places from our past. The first site lay in the San Bernardino foothills, near the old settlement of Verdemont. Here we met some local history buffs at the foundations of what was once the family h...

There's a need for a wider range of voices in the bike movement, and I know that at least some key people are working to create a social justice space. However, I think the struggle for social justice is being impeded by poli...

Hi Richard,
Sounds like it'll be an interesting presentation! I like your donut chart.
San Jose's been on my mind recently because I'm going to apply for a
teaching job at San Jose State, and it seems like a city with the potential
to lead in areas like active transportation because of the diverse
population.
I am planning on attending the CalBike Summit, though I'm a little confused
about whether I'm on a panel or not.

Take care,
Adonia

Dear bikey friends, Keep in mind that you are going to be mined for data as a valuable source of knowledge as more of the global corporate structure decides that biking for transportation is marketable. My friend Davey Oil, w...

Adonia E. Lugo, Ph.D.
Introduction
I am a cultural anthropologist and an activist. Since June 2008, I've been blogging about my carfree adventures as a Chicana woman because I believe our cities can be socially equitable and sustainable. In Los Angeles, I co-founded CicLAvia and City of Lights/ Ciudad de Luces (now Multicultural Communities for Mobility). I also created labikemvmt.org, a collaborative history of the LA bike movement. In 2012, as the Seattle Bike Justice Project, I conducted interviews about bicycling with leaders in Seattle's communities of color. I currently live in Washington, D.C., where I am the Equity Initiative Manager at the League of American Bicyclists.
