Pedaling the Pueblo: Elliot DuMont Creates Space for Future WTF Bike Mechanics

Elliot DuMont of Roadrunner Bicycles, a bike store on east Speedway, near Wilmot, isn’t your typical bike store owner. He’s constantly thinking about ways to get more underrepresented people into bicycling and, specifically, wrenching – a term of endearment for bike mechanics.

Elliot applied for, and received, a grant from Quality Bicycle Products (QBP), a large bicycle parts and accessories distributor, to put on a three-day workshop in South Tucson for Women, Trans, and Femme (WTF)-identified people to learn how to become bike mechanics.

The workshop is free and will take place later in the fall of 2019. If you or someone you know meets the criteria of WTF-identified and from a southside community, contact Elliot for more information about how to participate in the workshop.

Pedaling the Pueblo is a mini-program and podcast that connects people to news and information about Tucson’s bicycle culture. A collective of bicycle enthusiasts host and produce weekly programs covering a wide variety of topics. From community events to questions about how bicycle funding works; tips to start riding more to interviews with local bicycling legends, Pedaling the Pueblo explores life on two wheels from a “people first” approach, allowing us all to have an open dialogue about how people move through our shared built environment.

Content is responsive to and driven by the community, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at ptp@kxci.org. You can also find us on Facebook.
