Topic – The Shape of Bicycle Activism
Date & Time – Thursday MARCH 25TH – 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Preston Tyree has transitioned from Chemical Engineer to successful International marketing executive to small business owner to bicycle advocate/educator. His work in advocacy/education gives him great satisfaction; seeing people’s faces light up as they “get it.” Whether it is a special technique to make their cycling safer and more fun or whether it is a concept about how he can get the city government on board.
As Education Director for the League of American Bicyclists, Tyree’s work encompasses training new instructors, communicating with 1,200 current instructors, speaking to local organizations, testifying in court, writing curricula and playing with young riders on bikes.
See you Thursday!
