Save The Date:

Wednesday, June 29 – June Rapid Growth Not Your Average Speaker Series – Bicycle Culture in GR: The “Not Your Average Speaker” Series, hosted monthly by Rapid Growth Media , brings together panels of interesting people to talk about local and state issues. Past events have included interviews with Gubernatorial candidates Rick Snyder and Virg Bernero, Culture Shock (diversity issues), and The Future of Food, among many others.

On June 29th, PedalGR ride captain Josh Duggan will be one of the featured panelists for a discussion on bicycling conditions in GR, our growing bicycle culture, and the increase in everyday bicycle transportation. More details will be forthcoming, but the 6/29 PedalGR will host a mass bicycle ride from Founders to the event at the Wealthy Theatre near Wealthy and Fuller. They will also be premiering a great new “Streetfilms”-type video highlighting some of the progress and needs for bicycling infrastructure in Grand Rapids.

I hope you’ll join us for this great event!!
