In the City of Bikes: The Story of the Amsterdam Cyclist
Pete Jordan (aka Dishwasher Pete) will discuss his new book, a history/memoir of cycling in a city world famous for its bicycle culture. The people of Amsterdam have embraced the bicycle since the 1890s, not only as a means of transport but as a part of their very humanity. In Amsterdam, the bike is King of the Road. Bikes are central to everyday life, to festivals, and even to the anti-Nazi resistance during World War II. We’re hosting his only appearance in the region Wednesday, May 8, 7 p.m. at Plays & Players’ Skinner Theater (1714 Delancey Place, just south of Spruce Street).
