On 2 Wheels: This exhibition explores San Francisco’s vibrant motorcycle culture and highlights roles women have played, focusing on the 3 arenas of workforce, education and recreation. It is a collaborative project between San Francisco Public Library (SFPL) and City College of San Francisco (CCSF). Historical and contemporary content provides a means for examining gender equity in these arenas, at the same time highlighting books, magazines and websites available to all motorcycle enthusiasts through CCSF and SFPL. Together, both institutions make accessible to all motorcycle enthusiasts resources that include: motorcycle repair manuals, books on career and vocational, recreational guides, classes and workshops.
