London Calling: Notes from London’s Cycling Underground
1966 Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Fairfax
A special holiday evening, with a talk by Jenni Gwiazdowski plus sneak previews and gift shop discounts!
Curious about our expansion? Heard talk of amazing bikes coming in our doors? Love our Speaker Series? We hope you can join us on Tuesday, December 17! Our doors will open at 6pm with refreshments at the ready. Take a look at our expansion-in-progress, see fascinating bikes, get special discounts in our Gift Shop! Then at 7:30pm, enjoy a talk by special guest Jenni Gwiazdowski, who’s here for a short visit from her adopted home of London.
Jenni’s a whirlwind. She is founder and director of the London Bike Kitchen, a mechanic-owned-and-operated DIY workshop. She is the author of the recent book How to Build a Bike, a lively manual for building up your own ride. She is co-presenter of the Wheel Suckers Podcast, a “tandem” cycling comedy podcast with engaging interviews and panels. Recent episodes include Transcontinental Launch; Afghan Cycles; Women’s Racing Intro Night; Why A Custom Bike; Pedal the Planet; The Future for London Cycling, and Wheels for Wellbeing.
Join Jenni and all your museum friends for a talk about how she went from being a soft-fingered marketing assistant to a grease-pawed monkey, bringing American DIY aesthetics to posh Brits along the way. She’ll also talk about the bike scene in London, and how we can learn from each other, though we be oceans apart.
