KEY NOTE SPEAKER: April Streeter (Women on Wheels Book)

April Streeter

After a writing career focused on sustainability, including a stint as managing editor of Sustainable Industries magazine, April Streeter shifted her focus to sustainable mobility and bike advocacy. She hosts a women’s bike group of nearly 400 members (www.meetup.com/womenonwheels) to encourage and support women riders; blogs at TreeHugger.com; and contributes to a variety of magazines, including Green Mobility, Ethical Corporation and Nordic Cleantech Review. Women on Wheels is her first book.

 April Streeter, author of Women on Wheels, A Handbook and How-to for City Cyclists will discuss women, cycling, and why riding a bike is (still) a revolutionary act. The presentation will include a brief history of women's cycling and some of the fearless females who flouted the conventions of their day to pioneer the popularity of biking. She offers inspiration for both new and experienced city cyclists.

Gregg's Cycles

Gregg's Greenlake Cycle first opened it's doors in 1932 under the direction of R.V. Gregg. Today Gregg's Cycles remains under the ownership of the third generation of the Gregg family. The business has expanded from it's original location at Greenlake to now include locations in Bellevue and on Aurora Avenue North. In 1983 Gregg's Bellevue Cycle was opened to address the growing market in the suburbs of the Eastside. Gregg's Bellevue Cycle is currently the largest bicycle shop on the Eastside. In 1987 Gregg's Cycles purchased Aurora Cycle which was established by the McAllister family in 1937. Early in 2007 we closed the doors on Aurora and expanded into Lynnwood. Gregg's Alderwood Cycle opened it's doors on February 6th of 2007 and starts a new chapter in a history that spans more than 75 years.
