Traveling Road Symposium and Vegan Eats

Comment Off


On Thursday, June 3, Elly Blue and Joe Biel will host Dinner and Bikes, a traveling road show promoting bicycling, from 7 to 10 p.m. in Odd Fellows’ North Hall. Beil and Blue will co-present films, a slide show, and a lecture highlighting movements where people demanded better local bicycling conditions—all in service of increased use of bicycles.

At the start of the event, author and chef Joshua Ploeg will provide a gluten-free, vegan buffet dinner. Ploeg’s works include eight cookbooks, his newest of which is called This Ain’t No Picnic: Your Punk Rock Vegan Cookbook. After the dinner and presentation, there will be time for questions and a discussion of local issues, a book signing, and an opportunity to browse the Dinner and Bikes traveling pop-up bookstore.

Biel is the founder of Microcosm Publishing, the author of several books and zines, and director of Aftermass: Bicycling in a Post-Critical Mass Portland. Blue is an author whose works include Bikenomics: How Bicycling Can Save the Economy. Beil and Blue are co-producers of Groundswell, a collection of short films showing how people use bicycling to improve their communities.

The Corvallis edition of Dinner and Bikes is co-sponsored by Corvallis Bicycle Collective, Team Dirt, Mid-Valley Bicycle Club, Corvallis Spring Roll, Corvallis Sustainability Coalition, and Get There – Corvallis. Tickets are $20, available at For more information, visit or
