Bike justice

Fellow bike scholar, Adonia Lugo, just launched the “Seattle Bike Justice Project” website. Not only does it push an emerging critique of bicycle advocacy, she is also engaging in feminist research ethics by making her ethnographic research available to the public.

From the site: “Bike justice” means questioning the idea that bicycling is a luxury for a privileged group, or a burden for a marginalized group. It brings the equity struggle of other social justice movements to bike advocacy. It investigates the bicycle’s role in building sustainable communities and celebrates the diverse uses and users of bicycles! This website is a resource for people who want to find out how bicycling is perceived by community activists outside of bike culture.
