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
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]
