This blog has changed me

I don’t think of myself as a particularly introspective person, so I am a little surprised to discover that my preferred reading lately is mostly in support of my thinking for this blog.

On the go, I have:

  • Feminist City: A Field Guide, by Leslie Kern
  • “You Just Need To Lose Weight” And 19 Other Myths About Fat People, by Aubrey Gordon
  • The Book of The City of Ladies, by Christine de Pizan

I Just finished The Once and Future Sex , by Eleanor Janega.

I also participated in a Zoom panel on Finding Equity in The Low Car City, with Chris Bruntlett and Melissa Bruntlett. My next two acquisitions will be their books Curbing Traffic and Building The Cycling City.

And because all posts need a picture, here is my new bike, acquired this weekend. It has enough cargo bike features to make it really useful for running errands, and it has a step-through frame and a skirt guard on the chain so I can more easily cycle in a dress.

Black bicycle with a wooden box on the front, and a basket and panniers on the back.

Let us know what you think....
