While bikes might not seem like the most effective way to tackle social justice, rides through Boyle Heights or South L.A. with these groups are never solely about riding bikes.

Because activists from these communities do not take unfettered mobility for granted, the rides offer an opportunity to discuss injustices, raise concerns about environmental issues, set an example for collaboration across racial boundaries, promote health, explore neighborhoods where public space is contested and recreational riding is practically non-existent, celebrate their own communities as destinations, and inspire greater civic engagement.

"

from Reclaiming Public Space for Marginalized Communities: Bikes Don’t Fix Everything, But They Can Help by Sahra Sulaiman on Streetsblog LA

For more on the groups, visit the FB pages for the Ovarian Psyco-Cycles, Los Ryderz, the East Side Riders, Multicultural Communities for Mobility, TRUST South L.A., Community Health Councils, the Southeast Bicycle Alliance, and the Asian and Pacific Islander Obesity Prevention Alliance.

The Lost Desert Libraries of Chinguetti

Chinguetti is probably the last place on Earth you would look for a library of rare books, but there are about 6,000 intact (for the most part) rare 9th century books behind those clay walls.
