Bicycles for Social Change

Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

Prescott College - Chapel
220 Grove Ave.
Prescott, AZ 86301

Join author, Sue Knaup, for this interactive presentation on bicycles for social change. The event will center around Ms. Knaups recently published memoir, Bike Hunt, about her experience as the director of a national bicycle nonprofit. She will also tap elements of a course she taught for five years at Prescott College called The Bicycle: Vehicle for Social Change.

Attendees will learn about and discuss how bicycles have changed the course of history and how even a single bike can help someone escape poverty. Ms. Knaup will pose questions such as why bicycles have been left out of social movements such as Civil Rights and why most bicycle initiatives serve only privileged people.

A book signing will follow. For those who would like to purchase a copy of Bike Hunt prior to the event, it is available at Peregrine Books in Prescott or at online booksellers such as Amazon. Learn more about the book and One Street at All proceeds from Bike Hunt sales support One Street service to bicycle nonprofits around the world.
