BICYCLE HISTORY, TECHNOLOGY & PRACTICE
Tuesday, 12/10/13, Science Buzz Cafe, Coffe Catz
Please send bike history and technology related questions to email@example.com asap!
The resident bike expert at LITE Initiatives' Community Bikes,
Michael Teller will again entertain us with the amazing contributions
of bicycle technology. Last time he addressed early bicycle history
and the impacts bikes made on early 1900 personal transport and
inventions. This time he will address related topics such as the
development of our interstate roadways, wheel chairs, brakes,
transmissions, gearing systems and tires and more. Please send your
bike history and technology related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org .
As the manager of LITE Initiative's volunteer run bike shop in Santa
Rosa, Community Bikes, Michael teaches all comers, regardless of age,
ability or financial situation, how to maintain and refurbish bikes
and, at the same time, encourages them to ride safely. By enabling
people to go beyond their fear of mechanics, Michael empowers them to
reuse and repair their belongings. His efforts take environmentalism
to a new level - practicing what you preach - driving less and biking
more - and giving others tools to do the same.
