Opening our 6-week series covering topics of intersectionality in biking, Sara and Kyle sit down with Dr. Melody Hoffmann, author of "Bike Lanes Are White Lanes," co-host of the Feminist Killjoys PhD podcast, and a member of the Diversity and Equity Committee of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition. The Bike Nerds talk with Melody about her observations on the ways in which bicycles become symbols of joy and freedom to some communities and of oppression and obstruction in others. Through her work, bicycle advocates are learning ways to better build broad coalitions of support for bicycling in diverse communities across the U.S.
The Bike Nerds Podcast is sponsored by Saris Cycling Group. Visit www.sarisparking.com for a full array of bicycle parking and infrastructure products.
