Dinner and Bikes gets a little better, a little more fun, and a lot more organized every year.
The 2014 tour has already seen some exciting innovations. We completed a successful Kickstarter project that will help us bring the tour to cities we wouldn’t otherwise be able to visit. Also as a result of this extra funding kick, we’ll be able to add organic, local vegetables to our buffet. And this year, instead of a flaming rental car, we’ll travel between our events in a waste vegetable oil tour van from Fossil Free Fuel in Braddock, Pennsylvania.
Huge thanks to all the backers who made this possible, as well as to our local hosts and the event sponsors we haven’t met yet. We’ll be seeing you soon, and we can’t wait!
We are also thrilled to announce a new team member: This year we’ll be joined by Ruby, a 17 pound Public Access Certified medical alert dog, who is joining us as Joe’s personal assistant and all around advocate for the joys of both bicycling and food.
Last but not least, if you’re working to bring us to your town, you’ll most likely get a chance to talk with the excellent April Streeter, a women and bicycling advocate, author, and publisher. She and Elly are teaming up on a number of projects, one of them being booking this tour with six months lead time.
