The Bicycle Coalition and the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia will co-host a screening of the new, award-winning bicycle activism documentary The Bicycle Revolution at Cadence Cycling Center in Manayunk on December 5th, 2019.

 

The Bicycle Revolution follows a class of fifteen students at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, who cycle to twelve cities in order 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 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 of The Bicycle Revolution will be followed by a discussion session led by Professor Bradley Flamm, Director, Office of Sustainability West Chester University.

 

Where: Cadence Cycling Center, 3740 Main Street in Manayunk
When: Thursday, December 5th at 6pm
Admission: Register today
Free for members of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, Bicycle Club of Philadelphia, and Suburban Cyclists Unlimited (SCU); $5 suggested donation at the door for others]

Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
