The Bicycle Revolution Screening
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia are co-hosting a screening of the new, award-winning bicycle activism documentary The Bicycle Revolution at Cadence Cycling Centers in Manayunk on Thursday, December 5th, 2019 at 6 pm.
Q&A discussion following the screening will feature Professor Bradley Flamm, Director of Sustainability at West Chester University of Pennsylvania
The Bicycle Revolution follows a class of fifteen students at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, who cycle to twelve cities to explore the challenges of creating bicycle-friendly cities, which offers a window into the politics of social change in urban settings. The class is literally on wheels — the film documents the students’ rides to meet with the knowledgeable decision-makers, transportation planners, and community activists in Southern California.
The film explores the issues of bicycle infrastructure, “invisible cyclists,” bike-sharing programs, cyclists’ safety, and bike commuting and provides a guide for citizens to become involved with their city’s bicycle advocacy groups and planning commissions.
The screening at Cadence Cycling is part of The Bicycle Revolution’s outreach to local bicycle advocacy organizations to spark conversations between governments and community members. The screening of The Bicycle Revolution will be accompanied by a discussion session, urging attendees to think about and become engaged with cycling policy in Greater Philadelphia.
Screening Date: Thursday, December 5th
Screening Time: 6 pm
Screening Location: Cadence Cycling Centers, 3740 Main St, Philadelphia, PA 19127 | Plenty of parking on site
